Q: QUICK! Decorate your KINDLE Cover With This No Sew Idea

I applied the paper to my cover about 2 months ago. There is no noticeable wear and tear and I transport it a lot in my backpack.

I applied the paper to my cover about 2 months ago. There is no noticeable wear and tear and I transport it a lot in my backpack.

In March 2011 I received a Kindle as a birthday present. (Thanks sista and family!) Of course I needed a cover. I didn’t want to pay a lot of money for something fancy so I chose this black one. 

Recently, though, I’ve wanted something with a little more colour. I went on Google looking for home-made Kindle covers. Here is some of what I found. . .

  1. Transform a book into a cover. Here is another way to do this. And one last way to use a book as a cover.
  2. Grab some cardboard, contact paper, and velcro and you can create a standing cover.
  3. This is my favourite sewed Kindle cover.

But I didn’t want to sew, hack apart a book, or even worry about getting corners precise while using contact paper. Instead I grabbed scrapbook paper, modge-podge, a paint brush, scissors, and a pencil.

What follows is a no-sew, very easy way to glam up your cover.


  1. Cut the scrapbook paper to fit the front of your Kindle case. 
  2. Swipe modge-podge on the top of the cover.
  3. Place the paper on top of the modge-podge.
  4. Brush more modge-podge on top of the paper. Put on a light, even coat.
  5. Let it dry overnight. You probably don’t have to wait that long before it is dry and you can apply more modge-podge. This is just what I did.
  6. Apply modge-podge 2 more times according to steps 4 and 5.
  7. You are now done. Enjoy showing off your Kindle cover.

Your Turn . . .

  • Have you made a Kindle cover? Or decorated one? If yes, share photos.
  • Do you know how long you should let modge-podge dry between coats? If yes, share that information in the comments.
