I’ve made a couple kindle cases already, and both posts are consistently popular on Duct Tape Doodles. Today, I decided to create an updated case, which contains a felt lining. The lining offers more protection than duct tape on its own, and also lets the kindle slide in and out more smoothly. Still, only rely on this case for minor falls and scratches. Though I made this case for my kindle fire (first generation), the measurements can be adjusted to fit e-readers of various sizes. Here’s the tutorial (Sorry about the gloomy editing; it’s raining outside.)
1. Cut the felt to the correct size. Mine was 5.5″ by 16,” and I found these dimensions by adding an half inch to the height of my kindle and multiplying by two, and also adding an inch to the width. Depending on the thickness of your kindle, you may need to add more or less.
2. Cover the non-fuzzy side of your felt in duct tape. Trim the ends.
3. Fold the felt in half vertically (also known as the “hamburger” way).
4. Cut two more strips of tape, and fold them over the left and right edges of the case. You’ll need to fold the sides of the case over along with the strips, to prevent any stickiness inside the pouch.
The process is tricky to explain, but I promise the kindle holder is easy to create! Make sure to comment any questions, and I’ll definitely help you out :).

Howdy! I’m excited to show you my latest duct tape craft, a duct tape iPad case! This case is for the iPad 2 and above. You can also add handles to make a basic purse, which I’ll demonstrate in a future tutorial. Just a quick note: this project requires A LOT of tape, so if you don’t have much to spare, I wouldn’t recommend making this.
2 colors of duct tape
1. Create two duct tape sheets with the dimensions of 8.25 in by 10.25 in. If you don’t know how to make duct tape sheets, click here for a tutorial.
2. Tape the sheets together on the sides and bottom (obviously not the top).
3. Turn the case inside out.
4. Repeat step 2.
5. And you’re done! Make sure you’ve done step 3, as this will prevent the iPad from sticking to the case.
*THIS CASE IS FOR DECORATION ONLY AND WILL NOT PROTECT YOUR IPAD FROM FALLS*
That’s all for now! I’ll show you how to add handles to make a purse soon. Remember to follow (on WordPress or Bloglovin’), share, like, and comment!
Hi everyone! I have something awesome to share today! A friend of mine (also a faithful follower of DTD) sent me this picture of her homemade earring holder (tutorial here)! As you can see, she made it using zebra print duct tape. Notice the creative way she arranged the pieces, forming a seamless design. She purposely chose to skip the marker on her project, since the zebra print is slightly busy already. Amazing job!
Now, the news: Remember the sad, sad, post I wrote a while ago about my runaway duct tape? Guess who showed up at my door last night (found by my sister)?
We’ve all been reunited :). It’s a good day!
Hi guys. Remember that video I promised to show you today? Well here it is! I found this on Youtube on a channel called “Duct Tape Stuff.” I really like this video. Although it is really about creating numbers and letters, I assume you could use this technique to make any simple shape.
Pretty cool huh? And, by the way, remember that good ol’ Kindle Fire case that I made a while ago? Well, this video inspired me to “jazz” it up a bit!
That’s all for now! Enjoy the video!
Hi everyone, today I’m going to show you how to make a… duct tape earring holder! This is a pretty easy project, but it requires you to make a duct tape sheet. If you don’t know how to do that, check out this tutorial. What you’re going to need is:
Duct tape. I used one color but you can use as many as you’d like.
A permanent marker.
A small piece of straw.
Something big and round to trace. Plates work well.
1. First, create a duct tape sheet (see my tutorial). Trace the round object onto it with permanent marker.
2. Cut out the round shape.
3. Next, thread a piece of yarn through the straw and tie it in a loop.
4. Tape the straw to the back of the duct tape sheet.
I decorated the front of the holder with DTD (guess what it stands for?) You can decorate this however you’d like, but I don’t recommend gluing or taping things on because you will have a harder time of attaching the earrings. To hang your earrings, just poke them through the tape! If they have a back, attach the back on the other side of the holder. Comments? Questions? Ideas? Please comment!
This case isn’t exactly the best protection, but it looks great!
Two different colors of duct tape
1. Create two sheets of duct tape in the same color. They should be 5 1/2 in. by 8 1/2 in.. For information on how to make duct tape sheets, see my tutorial.
2. Tape together the two sheets with the second color. Holding them vertically, tape them on the sides and bottom. Don’t tape the top.
*Remember, this is not the strongest, most protective case. It is simply for decoration and to be used in places without risk of being dropped.*
