hehehe this thread got me so excited i promptly set to work on 'the science of self-realization' (a hare krishna book bestowed on my boyfriend which i rescued from the back of his car). and may i just say this..

i fall on my knees in awe at your finished product. I don't think i have the patience to get even a reasonable facsimicile of your books. Hmph.

they're awesome.

The all-time most creative Ipod related craft ever.  (and probably also the most time-consuming)  Wink


Project Vox -  What will you say?

I, Shout, along with fellow artist, Howl, make 5x4" cardstock booklets with our artwork on them, and leave them in random places for people to find.  The goal: to inspire and provoke thought

Have you seen any of our cards?

how do you make it?, do you have to stick every page together?

cool ipod book!  i made a few of the standard hollowed out books once and glued in some pieces of dark colored felt to hide the uneven edges where the pages were cut out.  it looked classy and helped protect the stuff in there too!

This rocks on the dock and never stops. Honestly. I freaking love it. I will be making my own hollow-book iPod case in the near future.

Fearlessly willing to try new crafts ... and usually botching them horribly.

3 guesses what my boyfriend's getting for his birthday!

. . .yes. paints. *Dies*

Absolutely brilliant Idea. I'm fond of super strange cases for my iPod, and this'll be the third such case i'll have pulled off of craftster for my darling Trygg. ^^ Fabulous idea, thanks. ^^

Wow, I am so glad I popped in from the knitting forum! I made one for the boy's ipod nano and he thought it was amazing and asked me to make a hidey-hole one for him too! (Dropped me three days later)

I made a much better one for myself: my nano earphones plug in at the bottom of the ipod, so I put the nano on top, and the headphone compartment beneath with a tiny cavity going from ipod earplug hole into the earplug compartment, and another from compartment to the outside, so I can listen to it with the cover closed, then put away the earplugs in their compartment without unplugging them.

Mine's better than his first one because I lined the earplug storage compartment with leopardskin felt, and the cavity for the ipod above has a piece of sponge in it, about one centimetre bigger around, with an ipod-sized and shaped rectangle cut out, so ipod fits in perfectly. Another layer underneath, so the back of the ipod's cushioned too, and a similar layer glued to the inside of the front cover to cushion the front when the cover is closed.

Flocking would also be a good idea for anyone who wants a lining - but you would probably need to use some kind of filler to flatten, straighten, smooth, and even out the sides, as below a couple of centimetres, being super-careful will help, but not keep the sides perfect.
