Little Boxes

In my search for the perfect iPod case, I've tried store-bought cases that didn't fit my specific model, or wouldn't stay closed, and decided to make my own. First I tried knitting a case; it looks fun, but does not protect the screen. The solution? Duct tape & cereal boxes. Clear packaging tape, folded over, works well for both protecting the screen and using the wheel. Happy listening!

Little Boxes - Regina Spektor

The Boxer - Simon & Garfunkel

Squeeze Box - The Who

Don't Rock the Jukebox - Alan Jackson
