Items you need

Rubber cement.
Spray adhesive or any other clear-crying adhesive/glue.
Clear plastic iPhone case.

Optional supplies

Laser printers.
Glitter pens.
Fabric swatch(es) big enough to cover your iPhone.
25-pound laser printer paper.

Step 1: Conceptualize your art and buy the case
You should have a clear idea on how the outcome will be. You can choose any design that appeals to you. Just ensure that it is clear.

Step 2: Customize
This is where you create a masterpiece. You will need to bring into action your mad scrapbooking skills. If you are lacking in these skills, use desktop publishing software. Create and place the texts, shapes and other elements you like. However, ensure you do not overcrowd the case as this will make it lose the appeal.

After you are done with design creation, you will have to measure your iPhone. Trace it using pencil on a piece of paper. Cut the material to match the measurements. Because the case might change how it fits, important designs should not be placed at the edge unless they will still make sense even after they have been cut.

Step 3: Cut it out

On a cutting mat, cut around the pencil lines with a craft knife or scissors. You may have to trim the casing size depending on the phone size. Cut out holes which correspond to the key openings.

Step 4: Glue it

Use the rubber cement or the spray adhesive to evenly and lightly coat the designed side of your pattern. Ensure the room you are working from is well-ventilated. The adhesives fumes are highly toxic. Press the pattern paper firmly on the clear case and smooth it evenly from the center outwards

step 5: Dry & affix

Give the case up to 48hrs to dry out. You can then go ahead and fix the case onto your phone.


Designing your iPhone case is that simple. Now that you have all the details, you should not be stuck with boring cases!
