DIY Amazon Kindle 3 case

I purchased the new Amazon Kindle 3 some weeks ago, and I’m really satisfied with it, but I found the original cover too expensive, so I decided to do my own using a DVD case of a very bad movie instead.

The procedure:

    1. Take the worst DVD movie you find at home.
    2. Open the case completely so you separate and take out the paper with the synopsis and photo of the movie. You can flip this same paper as I did and put it inside again to get a white cover.
    3. Use a cutter to cut any plastic part of the inside of the cover that may annoy.
    4. A standard DVD case it’s slightly shorter than the Kindle so we’ll also cut the half top part of the case in order to close the cover without problems with the Kindle inside (see photos).
    5. Cover done!
