How to: Make a Stylish iPad Case from a Notebook

Perhaps you found a new shiny iPad under your tree this year, or maybe you're just interested in warming up your high-end tech gear with some old school, classic-guy charm, but you've gotta check out this easy, yet secure, how-to for creating an iPad from an inexpensive paper notebook, which would work equally well using an appropriately sized vintage book binding.  

Ashley from Lil Boy Boo says, "We recently bought a new iPad 2 for work and I was floored at the prices of covers…..I just couldn’t bring myself to spend that much. My husband’s friend Walker jokes that his composition notebook is his “low-tech iPad” because it is exactly the same size…..so it gave me an idea. I would make a cover for our new iPad out of one of the old composition notebooks I had sitting around. Turns out it was pretty easy using the box my iPad came in, some hair elastics and a notebook with the pages removed."

A safe, stylish, handmade iPad cover for $2.99? Can't beat that.

Very cool but it would not protect it from a fall.
