I recently got an iPhone and with that came the monumental decision of which case/cover to purchase. There were just too many options – how could I be expected to commit to just one?! I know there are cheap cases out there but I wanted something a bit sturdier & those cost a bit & I’m too cheap to buy a whole bunch : )
I opted for one with a clear back and thought I’d be able to jazz it up somehow.
I used my traditional scrapbooking supplies to make this insert:
I traced the case onto the back of scrapbook paper, cut it out & embellished the front side. I used items from the Enchanted Power Palette – except for the sticker, that is from an older discontinued line.
I love it but it’s lumpy & bumpy and I knew there was a better way…go digital!
I traced the outline of the case again onto black cardstock & scanned it into my computer. I brought that into Storybook Creator Plus (SBC+) and then used the wand tool to isolate the shape of the case.
Then I filled the shape with paper and embellished it digitally.
Here are a few I made using this technique:
Here is a template you can use, either traditionally or digitally. Be sure to make the template (the outline of the case – not the page itself) 4.5” long and keep the proper aspect ratio so it prints out correctly. If you print the image below as a 4”x6” size it should fit a case for an iPhone 4s with maybe just a little trimming.
