DIY | Easy Phone Cases 2017



Okay, now who doesn't love a good phone case?  I love a cute phone case but trying to find a place to store my phone case collection is a bit difficult.  Especially, since I'm not a fan of throwing things away and tend to keep EVERYTHING.  So for this DIY, I made three different inserts using acetate sheets and a few other materials to switch in and out using ONLY one phone case.

For the first insert, I used the Distress Inks by Tim Holtz and I have to say they are my favorite.  I pressed the ink pad onto a piece of acetate sheet, added water and began brushing it onto a piece of paper.  I made another design as well and this one is my absolute favorite.  I went ahead and pressed the ink pad onto the acetate sheet again, added water, but instead of brushing it onto the paper.. I flipped the acetate sheet directly onto the paper and blended it out.  I know the directions are a bit all over the place but my youtube video shows you exactly what I did =).

After all that, I traced some words onto a piece of acetate sheet, cut down to the size of my phone case.  I saw a shirt with the same words and thought they would look cute on a phone case.

For the second insert, I decided on making a marble design.  Starting with a container of warm water, I picked out three polishes that complimented each other well.  I began letting the polishes drip in various places onto the water.  Work quickly or else the polishes dry and it'll be harder for them to grip onto the acetate sheet.  I used the watercolor as the backing but you can use them clear.  Most of the time I like the back of my phone to show through the case but sometimes a full opaque case works too.

This last insert is a set that I made with one of my best friends in mind.  I combined the use of a sharpie and nail polishes for this one.  I took a phrase and split it into two that would fit both cases when combined.  I then took the nail polishes I had on hand, drew on both donuts and sprinkles.  I used the same watercolor as a backing for better pictures but this design looks great alone with a clear case.
