copper foil iPhone case DIY

I switch out my iPhone case just about every other day based on what I’m wearing. This habit can get a tad expensive, so recently I started brainstorming iPhone case DIY projects. One of my favorite tricks is to use metallic foil to perk up an inexpensive plastic case. The steps are pretty simple and straightforward, but the end result will have people asking “oh wow, where did you get that??”

Start by lining up your stencil on your phone case. Then, in a well-ventilated area, spray on the adhesive and allow to set according to instructions.

Remove the stencil and carefully lay the stick side of the phone case onto the copper foil sheet. Be sure to apply pressure to ensure full coverage of the foil.

Using an old paintbrush, wipe away the excess bits of foil. Keep in mind that the edges won’t be perfect!

You can also use washi tape to create patterns like stripes, plaids, and geometrics. Simply follow the same process.

fall phone pairings

I like to switch up two things all the time: my phone case and my purse. It’s sort of like picking accessories based on my mood! This first look is all about one of my favorite colors for fall: burgundy. I’d grip this over-sized python clutch (c/o GiGi New York) in one hand, while texting from this painterly floral phone case. These two picks are just enough to give an all black outfit a touch of fall color.

Want a bit of a brighter, more modern look? Pair this colorblocked phone case with an ultra slim cross-body bag (c/o ASOS). This graphic look works with skinny jeans, a military jacket, and maybe a graphic tee. Which look would you wear?

I tend to change my phone’s case depending on the season. This past summer, I was all about sleek, minimal cases, but now I am craving something a bit more personal… Enter Casetagram. In what could be the easiest process ever, simply connect your Instagram account and upload photos from your account (you can manually upload photos, too). Then drag and drop them into various templates to create your very own custom phone case. I decided to make mine an ode to Georgette. How sweet is this grid of all her photos?

Confession: I’m a huge nerd. I love keeping up with all the tech news, whether it’s when the new Adobe Creative Suite will be released or what the hottest startup is at the moment… that’s the sort of stuff that gets me excited in a majorly nerdy way. As an example, one of my favorite inventions ever is Dropbox — it’s just so well done and exactly what I need it to be without superfluous bells and whistles.

I also really love to stay connected and nothing let’s me do that better than my iphone. That thing and I are practically attached at the hip. I’m a bit clumsy though and pretty much always have a case on my phone to prevent the knowing looks of “oh… the cracked screen… I feel your pain…” But who wants a borrowing case?? Here are a few iphone cases that are like mini works of art!

  1. color-blocked goodness from J.Crew
  2. Printed case from Free People
