August 30, 2013

We have such a fun and easy DIY for you today!!! Along with a fabulous GIVEAWAY!!! When Brides are engaged and planning their weddings, most want to shout it from the roof-top! What better way to tell the world that you are taken than with a custom, wedding cell phone case!!! This project is so easy, and cost effective, it’s literally less than $5 to make! And you can rock a new design every week if you wanted to! Which is your fav?

SUPPLIES:

  • Clear cell phone case
  • Matte photo paper
  • great photo printer like the HP Photosmart 7520
  • FREE printables below
  • scissors
  • pencil

Start by printing any (or all!) of the free wedding cell phone case designs below. Design your very own. Or, even print out one of your engagement or wedding pictures! Make sure you print onto matte style photo paper or brochure paper. If you use glossy paper, the gloss finish will stick to the cell phone case and look funny. Matte style paper is best.

Lay the flat side of your phone case onto the printout, center and trace around it. ***Here we are using an iPhone 5 case, but all these designs will also fit the older model iPhones.

Carefully cut the design around your traced line.

Slip your cut-out into the clear case to make sure it fits properly, if it doesn’t – trim where you see fit or print out another one!

For the camera hole, I tried multiple ways to cut that perfect oblong – with no success. I found the easiest thing to do is just cut the corner off. With the printout in the case, trace the camera hole so you know where it is – and then cut the corner off.

Slip the finished printout into the case and snap onto your phone. That’s it. It’s that simple. You could change them every week if you wanted. No gluing required. Your phone will firmly hold the paper printout perfectly in place!

This one is my favorite! I’m a crafty bride…

After your wedding, you can print your favorite photo and do the same thing! I actually have this one on my phone right now… I love this photo. It was from our 100th DIY project :)

I would be elated to win this printer package! I have an HP desktop at home but all I have is a hand-me-down old printer to use with it. I have gotten so may ideas off of your website for my wedding and plan on using several of them. My Mom and I are going to chalkboard paint wine glasses for my bridesmaids, I am going to use your "Will You Be My" bridesmaid idea to ask all my girls, and I plan on making tons of paper signs along with wooden signs for our wedding. We are on a strict budget so we are trying to do as much DIY as we can...also because I am obsessed with crafts! :)

March 15, 2014 I am an amateur photographer and have tons of DIY projects in mind using my artwork, but we don't even own a printer at home at the moment. This would help a lot so that we don't have to run all over town for our DIY projects. I know my girl would really appreciate that! Thank you for hosting this fabulous giveaway! Fingers crossed!!

We currently do not own a printer and I have had to have my mom print out our various stationary or have it done at Kinkos which can get really expensive. Thank you for this awesome giveaway. Fingers crossed.

Will Fournier, My Wedding is August 23 2014. Well My Fiancee is a HUGE! I mean a HUGE crafter and we want to make everything for our wedding and the chance to win this printer couldn't have come at a better time, our printer currently is old and not sure if the quality is up to par. We have been pinning and saving so much off your site for the past few weeks since we got engaged. Yesterday we went on a trip to Michaels and picked up a ton of craft supplies and have already started making our wedding cocktail picks (Inspired by your site... Thanks!). Thank you for all the amazing ideas and the opportunity to win the HP printer!

I would love to win because I would be able print out my own Save the dates, invitations, programs and I would love to make the Bride phone case! I love it. My printer is currently not working as good. I'm afraid to attempt to spend the money to print things and it not coming out good and then just having to spend more money to order it later. We are paying for our own wedding so it's been a challenge for us. Thanks for the opportunity!

    Hi Kelly! As long as you purchase a clear case for your phone, the steps would be the same, I recommend using a photograph of you and the fiancé- it's so fun!
