The cheapskate’s e-reader case

My post a little while ago about a cheap book light inspired me to see how cheaply I could make an ereader case, and it turns out I can make one out of stuff in the recycle bin. You’re looking at one of my neighbor’s magazines and a rubber band.

Most magazines are too big for the average ereader, so you’ll need to fold the magazine around the gadget. I have my Kindle pulled out of the case so you can get a better mental image of how to do it.

I was going to do a case made from duct tape, but I got stuck halfway through.

Probably. I just grabbed the first one I saw.

Bored today? And that rubber band putting pressure on the side buttons is disaster.

I knitted myself a case out of old yarn and then washed and dried it so it felted. Worked great and cost about the same as your magazine and rubber band!
