Hey, Internets! It's really awesome to see you here on my new BLOG! I'm Melissa and I'll be your crafting guide. I am going to show you how to make all sorts of cool shit. WOOT!
For my first post, I decided to show you how to make a glittery cell phone case.
This is a *pretty* simple project, and maybe it doesn't show off my mad crafting skillz. But think about this - your cell phone is an essential item that you use constantly, and we are making it cuter than it already is! WIN. And, hey, we can only go up from here. So with out further ado, let's talk supplies!
Things you need:
1. Cell phone case (I grabbed an old one of mine that I don't use anymore)
2. Masking tape or painters tape from and hardware store or staples
3. Glue from my local art store
4. A paint brush from my local art store
5. Glitter (This glitter is from Guerra in NYC. They make awesome Glitter. More on that later)
6. A piece of paper to collect the glitters
Use the masking tape or painters tape to cover any areas that you don't want glitter.
Using Paintbrush, apply a layer of glue evenly across the surface of the cell phone cover. *PLEASE NOTE – for smooth surfaces, you might want to roughen it up with some sand paper so that the glue takes to the surface*
Poor glitter over glue
Tap off excess glitters.
Save the glitters!
Let sit. For a while. And then take of the tape once completely dry.
The final product:
And here is a blurry picture of me holding it awkwardly while simultaneously trying to photograph the whole thing. (Disclaimer: my hands are dirty from working on the next post! Don't judge my dirty hands!)
Send me pictured of your awesome glittering cell phones! Love it but don't have the time to make your own? e-me and I can sell this shit to you on Etsy! Happy Crafting!
