DIY Customisable iPhone Case



I love pretty cases for my phone but I can never justify having more than one functional case at a time just so I can change them up when I feel like it. Last year I splurged an extravagant amount of $20 for this floral case which I totally love, but after dropping my phone numerous times it has finally cracked. I've been taping the broken bits for a few months now but it was time to get (or make!) a new case.

What you need:

Wrapping paper (Kaisercraft, $1 per sheet)
White iPhone case with clear backing (Ebay, $1.50)
Pencil
Penknife



What to do:

1. Place the case with its clear backing against the wrong side of your paper. Use a pencil to trace the shape of the case and the camera hole.

2. The tracing should resemble this.

3. Using a penknife or scissors, cut out the shape of the case as well as the camera hole. Trim to a perfect fit if necessary. 

I managed to cut out three within 10 minutes! Now I can change the design of my case as I please at minimal cost. It's a great project for using up leftover wrapping or patterned paper from your other crafts, but you can use whatever you want, really. I will try using photos next!
