1. Turn a Hardback Book into an E-Reader Case by Creative Upcycling

As a former English major, I’m totally loving this tutorial on how to upcycle an average hardback book into an e-reader case. This is such a cute and unique way to hold an e-reader– way better than the generic ones in stores! Creative Upcycling even lists different sizes and dimensions of the current e-readers and tablets! I even thought about how I could find a pocket sized book for my iPhone! To make this project even more eco-friendly, consider using second hand fabrics or organic cotton instead of conventional cotton.
