    Duct Tape Case/Sleeve How-To

    It's much cheaper than any case you can buy! (at a retail store) And after you're done with the sleeve, you can fix your air ducts!

    Steps:
    1: Get some duct tape.
    2: Create a sheet of tape a little taller than your touch and about two and a half times wider. Follow the directions here to create the sheet.
    3: Trim the edges and wrap around the touch and tape on the back. Make sure it's tight enough.
    4: Tape the bottom making sure to keep a small part open for the headphone jack. Before you put on the tape, cut a piece of tape about 1cm wide and put it on the sticky side of the tape with the sticky side down. This is so that it won't stick to your touch.

    If you want you can cut out a hole for the screen and ambient light sensor.

    Mine's pretty crappy. I'm sure someone else could make one that is more professional.

    Very nice. I did a duct tape case for my old 20gig using camo duct tape and some lexan to cover the screen. Makes me think I should do one for my touch.

    The only problem with these is that they can smell funny, depending on what type of tap you use.
