$1 Custom Iphone Covers

This is the final day of my Dollar Tree Craft Week! Today's craft is a $1 Custom Iphone Case.
Iphone Case $1 and up

Iphone Case $1
Modge Podge on hand
scrapbook paper, fabric, or drawing on hand
embellishments on hand
I was excited when I recently saw this Iphone case at Dollar Tree. Even though it had a built in stand, I knew I could make it into a custom case. I just covered it up entirely so the stand can't pop out. Take your paper/fabric and lay the case down on it and trace an outline. Cut it out and apply it to the case. I used some clothes pins to hold the curved edges in place. You can apply any embellishments before or after you put a coat of Modge Podge on the case. I applied Washi tape to this blue cover and then sealed it.
My daughter drew this chevron design. We added quite a bit of glitter to it, but I think it's adorable!
You can even print out a photograph on paper and really personalize your case. This one was created for our White Elephant Gift Exchange.
For $1, you can make a case for just about any occasion or outfit. When I was looking through my fabric stash I could not resist using this Chicago Cubs fabric.
I hope you enjoyed Dollar Tree Craft Week. I am a big fan of Dollar Tree and I will probably come up with more craft ideas in the future.
