Good evening! (or afternoon, or morning). I just finished up this fun little project today and thought I’d share it with you, since I love it so much. I’ve been wanting to do this project for awhile now. I finally ordered a clear cell phone case from Amazon.com the other day, and today it arrived! I headed right on over to the craft store and picked out some scrapbook paper. As you can see, I went overboard. I don’t usually get the chance to buy any of the beautiful papers I drool over, since I don’t scrapbook, so this was the perfect excuse to buy lots of pretty paper.
If it’s not self explanatory enough, basically all you do is trace around your cell phone on some scrapbook paper. Cut it out. And then cut out a hole for the camera and flash. I used the clear cell phone case to help me determine where to put those holes, since there is a hole in the case for the camera and flash. To do this I laid the clear case on the cut out cell phone shape and traced around the hole. I cut the holes out with a round hole punch, I just punched around the traced area until all the area was all punched out. You could probably cut the hole out with an exacto knife as well. Once I got a good pattern cut out, I used it as a template for the other covers.
Once they’re all cut out you just pick which ever pattern you feel like, stick it in the case, and snap it onto your phone. It stays in nice and tight, and the case keeps it in place so you don’t have to worry about it slipping around or falling out. I freakin’ LOVE this! Now I can customize my case to match any outfit, mood, or holiday! And it’s so easy and inexpensive too!
Check out what my phone will be wearing for the Independence Day, lovely chevron stripes and stars. It will definitely be the best looking phone at the family barbeque (if we have a family barbeque this year).
I have an iPhone, as I mentioned earlier, and I don’t know if this technique will work for other phones. If you know of another type of phone this technique will work for please let us know in the comments!
UPDATE: I’ve had a lot of people ask where I bought the case. I bought it off Amazon.com. Here is a link to the exact case I purchased. So far I’m pretty happy with it!
