DIY iPhone Case!

Lesley Myrick DIY Do it Yourself Custom iPhone Case

Remember that time I made a sweet iPhone case, and then told you that I’d share a tutorial so you can make your very own? Well, here it is! (Weekend project, ahoy!)

Step 1: Buy a clear case for your phone. This little guy was a whopping $1.47 on eBay, and Overstock.com also has some inexpensive options.

Step 2: Trace the inside back of the case and make a cardstock template. Or if you’re lucky like me, your phone will just come with a faux cardboard phone that’s already the correct size.

Step 3: Find some cool scrapbook paper, magazine pages, or the like. Trace your template onto the neato paper, and cut it out. (I cut out a few different options – I like variety!)

Step 4: Slip your cut-to-size paper into the case to make sure it fits. Trace the hole for the camera (every phone case is different) and very carefully cut it out. I used a small craft knife. Or rather, I should’ve used a small craft knife – I actually used an obscenely large utility knife because it was all I had available. Learn from my mistake.

Step 5: Pop your paper insert into the case, snap the whole thing on your phone, and BAM! DIY style.

Happy weekend!
