iphone 4/4s case

I know this isn't exactly the traditional fashion and beauty post but everyone I've explained this idea too has said they would never have thought about it so I thought maybe to someone out there this might be a useful idea.

I recently traded in my old blackberry for a new iPhone and I see why everyone raves about them so much! Being a new member of the iPhone family I was very eager to find a protective case for mine ASAP given that I'm bloody terrified of breaking it. I set off searching the web and realized there really wasn't anything that was my style and affordable, so I settled for a plain clear case instead. I really enjoy customisation and DIY so I thought why not try and make a customised phone case with a pattern a bit more my style? I know that many websites will put photographs on cases for you but as a student I don't really have money to spend on things like that and wanted a cheaper alternative.

I'm extremely picky and someone who gets bored easily so it needed to be a case that had a lot of different possibilities. Then it hit me why not print off a bunch of patterns and cut them to fit behind the back of the clear case?

So that's what I did. I used Google images to find the patterns I wanted, printed them, drew around the clear case to get the general shape and trimmed them to fit inside the back. It has become the perfect solution to my problem meaning I can change the pattern on my case I'm minutes and have a million and one different designs at no extra cost. Perfect if you ask me.


  1. I think this is an adorable idea. I've been craving an iphone myself!

  2. this is such a great idea! ordering my clear case now lol!
