DIY iPhone Case

So I totally am a picky person when it comes to so many things. Such a purses, cases for my phone, etc.... and of course, I needed a new case for mine. All the cases I liked were either way out of my price range or just not available. I knew there were people who came up with ways to create your own and for cheap. And was I right!
I ran into a little site after doing some web searches called Mags Rags To Riches and found she had a tutorial there on making your own! Awesome. So I decided to finally give it a try today.
Her original post for this is found HERE and of course, her photos look so much better then mine.

Sucky thing is when you only rely on your phone as your only camera, then need to photograph your phone...what is a girl to do? So I had to try the best I could and use my webcam on my laptop. So I apologize for the horrible shots in advance that I tried to clean up a bit and edit to make them a bit more likeable. Oh well, you get the gist of it anyway.

So here is what I used:

Scrapbook Paper {from Michaels}
Clear Backing Case

I then turned the paper over so the back was facing up and traced around my phone in the exact shape of the curves and all

Next, I cut the paper with the scissors and put the paper inside the clear case to trace around where the back of the camera lens would be

I then just cut at first around the circle but it was not working as well as I wanted it to so I then just took Mag's advice and cut a big square around the whole shape

Eh, it's not too shabby for a first attempt. I may re try and prefect the back camera area since I have plenty of paper left {which by the way only cost me $0.20} so I can afford to screw up and play around. And the best part, I can switch out the back now as often as I want and to any special occasion as well. How perfect is that? Thanks Mag for the great idea.
