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?
- Clear cell phone case
- Matte photo paper
- great photo printer like the HP Photosmart 7520
- FREE printables below
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…
Slip in the case and snap on your phone!
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 :)
