DIY Kindle Case: Grab Your Moleskine

DIY Kindle Case: Grab Your Moleskine

We love accessible DIY projects, especially when they are made from items we already own. Most of us have an eReader and wouldn't dare leave our homes without covering it up. Instead of clearing out your bank account buying a designer case, maybe you should entertain the idea of making your own.

Using a 8x5 Large Notebook from Moleskine, Tom made his own DIY Kindle case and submitted the process to LifeHacker. Many of us are already proud owners of a Moleskine and most likely carry it around with us everywhere. In addition to a Moleskine, we carry around our Kindle or Nook with us everywhere too. We might as well combine the two and we're glad someone came up with this genius idea. All you need is a Moleskine (or similar durable notebook), exacto knife or dremel tool and glue!

Trace the Kindle on the pages of your Moleskine to make an outline. Carefully using your exacto blade or dremel cut out the space and fill it with your ereader. We prefer to glue the cut pages together (looks cleaner) beforehand, but that's not necessary if you don't want to. Leave pages in the front of the book loose so that you can still easily take notes with your ereader in place.

Of course, Moleskine has released it very own, official Kindle Case — so this DIY is for those who aren't looking to shell over $50+ for a case.
