DIY Watercolor iPhone Case

January 17, 2012

Cases by Jacqueline Maldonado $35
As aforementioned, here are are the embarrassingly easy steps to DIYing a watercolor (or any other kind of print) iPhone case. In a nutshell- you print a picture, cut it out in the shape of a cell phone, and then put it in a clear case. And while that truly is the long and short of it, I will elaborate in an attempt to make it look like I did something intricate and time consuming. The whole project took me less than 20 minutes and cost  about $1.
All you'll need:
Clear iPhone case (I got this one on ebay for less than $1!), print/fabric of your choice, scissors, and a pen or pencil.
 1:Choose picture (these are from my Pinterest collection of wall art), scale to 5x7 or 4x6 and print.
 *move your case around to choose which segment of the picture you'd like to be displayed.
 2: Trace an outline of the case
 3. Cut it out. Make sure yours is slightly less jacked up than mine.
 4. Put paper in case and trace a whole around the camera eye.
I will explain in a moment that there is an alternate/better way to do this step.
 5. Remove paper from the case, fold oval in half for an easier cut.
6. Put the print in the case and wah lah!
 Okay, so here's the better alternative (it takes me a time or two to figure out the best way to do things) for cutting a hole for the camera, which I used on my second print. Lay the case face side down on the back of the print and trace and cut so you can't see the ink or pencil marks.
 Love it.
Obviously you can use any paper or fabric in the case. The possibilities are infinite- ikat, quatrefoil, a note from your boyfriend...whatevs babe.

I also ordered this better quality case with a white bumper for more protection. Only $6, max!
Because God knows Apple is not going to replace my phone if it cracks, even though...ya know, I pay insurance on it and everything.

  2. I'm impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that's
    both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy I stumbled across
    this during my hunt for something relating to this.

  27. We cannot keep our smartphone away from direct atmosphere which means that it will clearly be exposed to several factors which can be harmful for its lifespan. These harms can be done by daily uses. For examples, scratches on the screen, faded or removed color in various parts of a smartphone, faded color or dust particle penetration due to direct sunlight and dust. These could be really very harmful conditions for your smartphone but you can get rid of all these harmful possibilities simply by purchasing Mobile Covers which are resistant to such smartphone harms.
