Tumblr E-Reader Case! Under $20!

Hey! During class we’ve been reading The Outsiders by SE Hinton, which is about two rival “gangs”, the Socs and the Greasers. Towards the end though Spoiler Alert!!! it got really sad when Dallas died. I cried so hard that i may have ruined the book… It was, however, a really good and eye-opening book. I recommend it. If you are an emotional person, keep tissues with you. I should have done that.

Anyways… How has life been? It wasn’t until I finished reading The Outsiders and decided to get a copy for my E-Reader that i remembered this was the last DIY i did before vacation. I figured i might as well share it with you guys, so here i am!

You will need a computer printout with Tumblr photography, duct tape, and an E-Reader case that fits your model. This can also be modified for a phone or tablet.

Step One. Google “tumblr photography” and select a picture you like. Goolgeling (?) “tumblr quotes” works too. Open it in a Word document and resize it. If you have PicMonkey, that works as well. Resize a small portion to fit the spine of your case. Print and cut out.

Step Two. Glue all your pictures down. Use your duct tape to frame it out. Insert your device to finish and make final cuts.

Bonus Material

Cord Storage Hack

Storing device cords and having to untangle them is a pain in a certain area. To help (and make them look stylish), you can go to the Dollar Store and buy some glitter hair ties. Tie around your cord to prevent tangles.

Thank you so much for reading my blog! Be sure to like this post and follow my blog just so you know when new posts will come out. If you are interested in reading The Outsiders, you can find free PDFs online or its $10.99 at Chapters. Remember the tissues come the end! Thanks for reading and i will see you again next time!

How do you get everything to and from class? If you’ve been doing a rather vigorous workout and are all covered in sweat, you obviously do not want to go home in the same clothes. In another bag, have your Emergency Kit, a hairbrush (sweat makes hair unruly), a water bottle, a change of clothes and either food, money to buy food or gift cards to food places. Bring coupons too. If you are still hunting for the perfect bag, i have found one! The DIY Galaxy Tote Bag! A super stylish and out of this world option.

I hope you take this advice into consideration and enjoy my Fashion Advice Posts! Remember to press the follow button to follow my blog with either a WordPress Account or your email so that you don’t miss out on exciting posts by moi. Post to ya soon,
