5 Minute DIY iPhone Case

I've been sorta obsessed with this Kate Spade polka dot iphone case and similar versions of it for years now. Yes I am aware I could afford to buy it, but $40 for a piece of plastic sounds crazy to me. Leave it to me and my diy copycat skills to find the perfect solution! As you may know, I am a Pinterest addict. I could easily spend hours days on that thing (my bf just says it's porn for crafty people...I admit, he's probably right). I came across this awesome idea one day and decided today would be the day to try it out. Besides, who likes to go outside on a hot summer day? =P

Anyways, if you wanna try it out, here's what you need:

  • Clear iPhone case (mine is from Tech21 and has a removable clear backing)
  • Paper (scrapbook, origami, photos, magazines, etc.)
  • Pencil or pen
  • Exacto knife or scissors
  • Self-healing rotary mat (only if using exacto knife)

Easy peasy steps:

1. Place your iphone case on your chosen paper and trace around it. 

2. Use exacto knife or scissors to cut it out. (Yes that paper is CHEAP compared to a new case)

3. Insert into iphone case and admire your hard work! :)

Now wasn't that easy? Not to mention, super inexpensive! For the first four I used scrapbook paper. I found some glittery letter stickers to spell my name on the striped one. The fifth one is a photo I found on the internet (shh don't tell!) and the last one is my favorite picture of my dog. Isn't he just the cutest squirrel?
