Everyone's seen those cute colourful monogrammed iPhone cases around the web, but who wants to pay fifty plus hard earned bucks for something that you'll probably either break or tire of after a few months? Not I! I knew there had to be a way to do this on a budget (and give myself some more options to boot!), so I decided to take a crack at it myself. This was a pretty easy project and only took me a few hours to come up with over 10 designs.
For those of you who know your way around any design program, the process is pretty simple: create a rounded rectangle to the dimensions of your iPhone 4, choose a patterned background, and add your shape and monogram in your choice of font. Print, cut and voila! Oh, okay not voila; at this point you only have a piece of paper. Rewind. Buy yourself a clear iPhone case on ebay. They are cheap... dirt cheap! Like $2 dirt cheap. Which means if you have ink in your printer and some good cardstock on hand, this project could cost you as little as $2. That means you have an extra $48 in your pocket to do whatever you like with. Woohoo!
Now what if you don't know your way around a design program? Well, you can always create the old fashioned way! Literally, cut and paste. Choose a graphic cardstock or fabric, cut to size and use scrapbooking shapes and letters to make your design.
