So anyway. I have a new and exciting craft project in mind, based around something my artistic genius Frugal Advisor Deb thought up:
|Upcycled book case for ebook reader!|
"Oh, no," said the salesperson. "Those are made of genuine leather and cost $30."
And I thought, hmm... I bet there is some sort of very cheap case I can make for this fragile and expensive digital item.
And then I remembered that Deb made her husband an ebook reader case out of a hollowed-out thrift store book! Look how clever she is:
|Looks like a book about Rum War!|
|But on the inside, it is hollowed out, ready to host an ebook reader!|
- mod podge (this is a kind of fancy glue that creative people use)
- exacto knife (can maybe borrow one from work)
- paint brush (...also maybe borrow from work?)
- a suitable-sized thrifty store book
Still, I am pretty sure this will be more fun, cooler, and ultimately cheaper than buying the $30 leather case!
... I should try and find a Michael's coupon for buying the glue. They always seem to have half-off coupons.
