Hi friends! I'm sharing a fun little tutorial with you today!
I'm sort of obsessed with cute iPhone cases, but they are REALLY expensive so I'm showing you an awesome and inexpensive way to dress up your phone! Here we go!
Supplies you need:
- A clear case. I found mine at Nordstrom Rack and it was $8. It's plastic, not silicon or rubberized so you shouldn't have a problem with a case like this yellowing. If you don't have a Rack near you, try Marshall's, Ross, or TJ Maxx and I bet you'll find on on the cheap!
- Fabric scraps
- card stock
- glue stick
- tiny scissors/exacto blade
- fray check is optional
First you are going to trace your case onto card stock. Trace as many times as you want. I made 3. I like variety :) Trace the little hole for the camera too.
Next, cut the shapes out. You'll cut out the tiny camera hole too. That part is a beast, sorry! I found it easiest to cut out the case shape then score the center of the little hole with the blade for my scissors to poke through, then carefully cut it out.
Once you have the inserts cut out, you will want to put it into the case to make sure it fits and to make sure the hole is in exactly the right place. You may have to fiddle with it and give it a little trim until it fits in the case properly.
Now you will apply your glue to the card stock. Make sure you apply the glue to the correct side and that the little hole you very diligently cut out is now in the top left corner.
Place your insert glue side down to the WRONG SIDE of your pretty fabric. I let the glue dry for a few minutes the cut around the edge. Then I cute out the little hole. Again, that part is a beast, but you'll get through it.
This next part is optional, but for a neat finish, apply fray check to the edges making sure to get the edges of the camera hole as well. After it dries, snip away any loose threads.
That's it! So pretty right!?! I think this one is my favorite!
Ta da! 4 brand new iPhone cases for $8 plus a few things you probalby already have lying around. I just saved you like $100 AT LEAST!
