When it comes to recycling books, we usually think of shredding the book into scraps and turning it into recycled paper. However this clever idea from studenthacks reuses an old hard cover book to be used as a carrying case for the iPod and its accessories!

This method of recycling can be performed by anyone as a simple project. All there needs to be done is to find an old unused hardcover book, measure and cut out the necessary voids off the pages of the book and you got your very own custom made iPod carrying case.

This will definitely match the MacBook Pouch where both of them can be safely stashed in a bookshelf amongst old books without standing out.
