After squinting my way through the Bahamas, I was lucky enough to receive a Kindle Paperwhite, which officially makes me a part of the cool kids club in my mind. The only thing missing from my new found sense of reading ease and relaxed fingers (you know what I’m talking about, the cramping fingers from trying to shield the sun with your book from the pool chair!), was a cool cover for it. After not finding one that’s quite “me”, I decided to make myself one and I thought you might find this DIY Kindle or tablet cover good for gifting, too!
To make the full travel theme complete, I also styled it with some of my favorite vacation goodies to give you some more stocking stuffer ideas to go along with it just in case you’re planning to surprise a special someone with a Kindle gift package for Christmas.
And yes, yes I do read work related books (this is my current read) on vacation, so judge me as you will. I’m like a machine that can’t stop!…
My Kindle actually fits perfectly inside the pocket of this padfolio, but I wanted to spruce it up a bit. To do that, I measure how much I wanted the marble paper to show on the cover.
Then I laid the padfolio flat so that I could measure and mark to cut one giant triangular piece so that it would wrap around the front and back sides for a better grip.
Once you have your piece of marble paper cut to size, all you have to do is peel the back off and stick!
Pretty simple right?! I feel like this would be the perfect care package or gift for the travel lover. Have any of you gotten into e-readers? P.S.- I’d also LOVE to know your most recent business related reads, too!
