Hey there, Sweet friends! It’s Thanh back on the Sweet blog. I hope that you’re enjoying your summer (or winter depending on where you are!). I thought I would share a quick and fun little tutorial of how to use Sweet Stamps in your everyday life outside of cards and planners.
I don’t know about you, but I love my smart phone! I currently use the iPhone 5S and I will admit that it goes everywhere with me. Due to the fact of how much it costs and how important it is, the protection case is as equally important so I put some money towards the case, too. No one, especially me, likes just a boring old case – I’m guilty of owning seven different cases! What can I say, I like to change it up every once in a while because I do get bored. I like my phone to be fashionable! However, this can get expensive so then I discovered that an inexpensive and still fashionable way to have different looks is to DIY your own phone case! I promise it’s super easy and just as fun as making a card.
Here are the supplies you’ll need to make your case your own:
- Clear plastic case (many different ones on Amazon)
- Pattern papers or cardstock
- Phone template printable
- Paper Trimmer and/or scissors
- Sweet Stamp Shop images
- Copic or other coloring medium
- Pencil (to trace, not pictured)
First things first, you’ll want to cut out your template and trace it onto a piece of patterned paper or cardstock. Depending on the look you want.
Here’s a good tip from me: to make this even easier for you, line up the template flush with your paper so then you will need to make less cuts!
Cut out your traced paper with either your scissors or paper trimmer.
Next step is exactly like you normally would make a card or paper crafting project. Color, embellish, stamps as needed. I was able to create three quick phone case looks in less than an hour:
I was unsure if I wanted to show you this next photo, but I had to share just how cute the the dog is in phone case form! Remember that this is a mirror image so the “ruff” is backwards! 😉
I hope that you’ve learned a little something today and be sure to leave me a comment if you have any questions.
Be sure to head on over to the Sweet Facebook page for all the fun details of new releases and plenty of inspiration!
Thanks for joining me today and I will see you really soon!
