Matchbox Mp3 Player

Introduction: Matchbox Mp3 Player

About: I am currently a Junior in high school involved in theater and I am constantly playing with my arduino and love to mod things around the house

the story behind this is my sister was cleaning out her room and found an old mp3 player. "It doesent work " my sister told me so what do i do? i open it up and look at that the battery is disconnected. i put it all back together, made some plans and got my camera.
so that's how that happened and now here is another great Instructable. pink isn't my favorite color so i decided to give it a new case. turns out a matchbox is the perfect size.
