I found this clever trick on Pinterest the other week from Oops I Craft My Pants and had to try it for myself: iPhone covers using scrapbook paper!
Now when I had my first cell phone in high school (the old Nokia), I probably had about 15 different cell phone covers that I would switch out to match my clothes everyday! I figure this scrapbook paper iPhone phone cover is an easy way to update my phone without spending all the cash!
First thing I did was purchase a couple sheets of scrapbook paper from Michael’s.
I also purchased a clear iPhone 4 cover from Best Buy. You could really purchase any cheap clear phone cover, but I wanted one with protective rubber sides since I’m a klutz and always drop my phone!
First thing I did was trace the scrapbook paper around the iPhone cover to get the basic shape.
I cut out the main section just using a pair of scissors. I kept trimming and setting in the clear plastic phone cover until it fit perfectly. Once the shape was set, I used this as a template for the rest of the scrapbook paper.
For the camera hole I used a pencil to sketch in the hole that I had to cut out using an exacto knife…. and that’s about it!
I’m really digging these fabric scrapbook pages! Love the texture plus I scored them on clearance for only $1 each!
Oh, and that iPhone cover below? I designed this in Photoshop with my blog logo. Yep, just normal laser printer paper that I cut to size!
This is also a great way to get festive for the holidays!
And I think the black damask one is my favorite for now!
Oh, thank you Pinterest for another great idea that’s affordable and easy to make!
