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.
Want to know how much my dear readers – YOU – mean to me? A LOT. So to say thanks, I wanted to give you a little something…a shiny new desktop wallpaper! (Click the links below to download.)
Happy August 1st!
