And yet again, another mobile phone case DIY

I'm beaten up by a full day of university (my head is throbbing like crazy!) so I think we're in need of an easy peasy craft-project post (before I'll head into all the other things from last week...and recover from all this input from today, that is).

Yay for easy and fast DIY's! I feel like it's been far too long that I actually did something, but than again, my room was like this huge DIY for me (over the last two weeks), and I did a couple of things...I just didn't post them yet, which kind of makes me forget about them....anyway. Back to the topic!

Just last week, I received this picture message from a friend of mine. Her new phone case:

And while I'm actually in love with my simple and black mobile case right now, this just got too cute! (Remember how I have this cute-design-obsession going on?! Yeah, right!).
So, while my phone is still not the best to have, if you want to buy all those cute phone cases, it certainly does support creativity in its own way.
I grabbed one of my many simple white phone cases, which I had purchased last spring (like 6 or 7 at once. Yeah I'm weird like that) and a black sharpie and started doodling, using one of my doilies as a template.


I finished with a coat of nail polish at the bottom.
Also, after everything had dried nicely and I had applied the case to my phone and had shot the first pictures, I noticed that somehow the sharpie wasn't staying a 100% perfect. It started to rub and get blurry where I touched it too much. Applying clear nail polish didn't work (apparently this just totally dissolves the sharpie colour), so I cut out some transparent book foil I had lying around. It is a simple one-side-sticky foil, nothing fancy. And I only applied it over the sharpie-painted parts. This really worked out well. So far, my phone is keeping me company (and with that is included: a lot of tossing, throwing and being shoved into bags several times a day).


So grab your next plain phone case and a sharpie, and start doodling ;)


I tried to take a picture of the foil. If you look closely, you'll see some of the lines in this picture.
Have fun! :)

    1. Hey,
      sorry für die etwas späte Antwort. Ich hab die Folie tatsächlich nicht um die Ecken geklebt, sondern kurz davor gestoppt. Ein bisschen siehst du's im letzten Bild. Die Folie klebt praktisch also nur auf dem gemalten (nicht dem Nagellack) und der "glatten" (nicht gewölbten/gebogenen) Handyoberfläche).
      Ich hoffe, dass das die Frage einigermaßen beantwortet ;)
      Liebe Grüße,
      Jo
