My sister and I went together to get my younger sister a Nook Color for Christmas.  We were worried that her 15 year old would take it over... so since my neice HATES ladybugs, I made a special holder for it!  After searching online everywhere, I did not like any of the holders for the Nook, and did not like the high prices either!  

The gift shop at the hospital was giving away books the day my mom had knee replacement surgery, and I scored this book for free!  What a funny title for my sister!

Inside view of the book... see all the wonderful ladybugs?  HAHAHAHA....  My sister has a ladybug sticker on her phone to keep my niece off of it!
Questions or comments welcome!

Side view of the book when it is closed.  I also added a "bookmark"!
Sure do hope she enjoys it!  We have also ordered a ladybug skin to put on the Nook, but it has not made it yet.

Love it. Did you cover pages inside with fabric?

I removed all the pages.  Then, I used a cereal box to make a template for the inside front and back, and a spine.  Double sided tape was used to add a layer of felt for a slight bit of padding.  Then I covered the back and spine with one piece of fabric.  This was spray glued down.  The front was coverd, and spray glued in place also.
The bookmark and the elastic were glued in place before the back was glued.  (almost forgot!)
Thanks for asking!

You did a wonderful job. I just have trouble getting the pages out. Any tricks to share. I'm planning on getting a nook after Christmas. I loved that you used the ladybugs. Yes, the elastic is great. I hope you don't mind if I use this?

I don't mind at all!  I used a knife and just cut all of the pages out at the seams.  Just a cut in the front and one in the back.  I have a second book that I gutted, just in case I messed the first one up.  I will try to get a photo posted of it.  All the pages came out together, still bound.  I just tossed them.  They had the old book smell...

Thank you. I'm going to try that. I hate that old book smell as well. Good idea to have a back up too. This helps so much.

This is such an awesome homemade cover! I would love to make one for my sisters Ipad, but i'll have to find a book that would be a good size.
