  • How to make a recycled pouch. iPod Shuffle Gum Cosy - Step 1
    Step 1

    Start by drawing out a pattern on to cardboard. Simply draw around the iPod shuffle, making sure to draw each of the sides that go together in one big template. Leave a rectangle at the top for the flap. If anyone has any problems I can put up my template.

    Cut out the template and score along the edges. Fold the template in to the iPod shuffle shape, making sure that the iPod will fit nice and snug.

    Now the fun part, pick a bubble gum wrapper that you like. I needed to use two gum packet wrappers, but I'm sure you can get bigger ones. Glue the wrapper to your cardboard template.

    Cut off all the excess wrapper and make sure it's all neat. Fold it back up and glue the ends together (I found it best to use super glue). Use a small piece of Velcro or a popper to lock down the flap.

this is a a really "sweet" (!) tutorial i'm gonna have to make one for my friend - i suggest using Fruitella/Starburst packets as they're quite big in size

i recently got a shuffle and decided to dress it up in a home-made cozy... so i tried the tutorial here. i made the case according to the directions, only i didnt use cardboard cause we apparently dont have any *rolls eyes*... i found that if you use the foil/sparkly kind of wrapper you dont really need cardboard. i didnt have velcro or a clasp either so i just put a hole in the top with a hole puncher and put the headphones in to secure it. it works pretty well.

anyyyway, thanks for the tutorial! ^___^


what are the dimensons of the wrigleys bubble gum wrappers and how can u make a gum chain


What if you have a Nano, I want a bubble gum case for the nano; could someone let me know if that's possible?
