DIY Unlimited Customizable Phone Case!

Hey DIYers! Today's DIY, I think, is one of my most favorite DIY ideas ever! It's a DIY phone case, but better yet, it can be customized... UNLIMITED TIMES! This DIY is PERFECT for people on a budget, because instead of getting multiple phone cases, you only need 1!

What you'll need:
- A clear phone case
- Cardstock Paper
- Pencil
- Markers, Washi tape, glitter, stickers... Whatever you want to make your phone case look amazing!
- Exacto Knife (Please get parent's permission!)

Steps:
1. Using your pencil, trace the phone case, including the camera hole.
2. Use an exacto knife to cut the shape out!
3. Try to fit the paper in the case. Most likely it'll be a little too big because the outside of the case is bigger than the inside, so trim the paper accordingly to fit the inside of the phone case.
4. Once the paper fits inside the phone case, decorate it however you'd like! The only thing is that you CANNOT make the design 3D (like glitter glue that rises above th…
