Please excuse the naked Kindle......I'm being so wishy-washy on what skin to order.
I bought an Oberon K2 cover w/velcro from Leslie and she was kind enough to throw in an Amazon cover also. The Oberon is sooooo beautiful but I couldn't bring myself to put velcro on the back of my Kindle.
I saw the fabulous LunarEarthMama had taken her Amazon cover apart so I thought I would give it a try. Just as she said...it's all glue, just work slowly and firmly. It very center was a little nerve wracking becase it doesn't have the reinforcement of the plastic-y stuff on the back.
So you're left w/an "Amazon insert" It's a perfect fit into the side pockets of the Oberon. By perfect, I mean snug. I had to flip the Oberon inside out and scooch the Amazon insert in little by littl.
When I was finished the Amazon hinge was in the middle....which doesn't work for closing the cover. The hinges need to scoot a little to the right but the Oberon panel won't let it. So I made little slices right at the hinges and slid the leather underneath. But that didn't work....because it's too fat. So I had to actually cut the leather a bit. (I think I cried a little at this part ) In the 3rd pic I've slid some white paper under the hinges so you can see the cuts. IRL you can't see this part because it's black on black and because it's under the Kindle. I could/should have done a better job but I was getting a bit frustrated.
My 1st plan was to slid this insert in and out of different covers. But this isn't going to happen. The fit is too tight and I left the glue residue on the back of the Amazon insert so it's very snug.
I didn't use any tape or anything....the hold is just as tight as the original Amazon cover. I don't own an Oberon journal so I'm not sure how loosey/goosey the insert would be w/that. The Amazon insert has some sturdiness to it so I took out the Oberon stiffners that are usually in in the sides.
Obviously this makes the Oberon overly expensive. I was just trying to work w/the covers I already had to meet my needs.
Hope this helps someone w/their project,
