DIY iPhone Case Design

DIY iPhone Case Designs

I’ve been wanting to make my own cell phone case design for a while now, but I had a good case and didn’t want to replace it. Well, it broke last week, so I took my chance.

I love this craft because there are so many options. You can use a drawing (which I plan to make later), photography, scrapbook paper, Instagram photos, etc. Whatever you can make or find will work!

Step 1

Make a template.

I traced my phone on the paper I wanted and just added tabs to the edges so that the paper will wrap about my phone and stay in place.

Cut it out.

Place your cut out inside of the clear case and trace around the section for the camera.

Use the X-acto knife to cut that part out.

You should now have something like the above image. This can be your first design option and your template.

Step 2

Put the design against the back of your clear case and place your phone against it.

These two designs were made from this gorgeous painting on Wikimedia. I printed out the original upload, then used my template to cut out 2 more designs from the left and right side of the painting.

There are plenty of places to find images under the Creative Commons license. Check them out if you’re thinking about making your own phone case design.

I’m planning to make a few more designs and will upload them when I finish.

I’d love to hear what you think! Leave me some feedback in the comments.
