-DIY- customize your phone

This is my first tutorial, so I hope its clear.
I thought my phone to be a bit boring, so I used some contact paper to cheer it up a bit.
I've choosen a wood print, but its available in every color.
tutorial after the jump break.

-phone or other device
-stanley knife
-contact paper

1. cut
 Cut a pice of contact paper, it has to be bigger than the cover, the edges are round and you can always cut away excess.
2. paste

pull the back of te paper off and put the case upon the sticky side, and press it flat.

3. cut again

 cut in the corners so you can fold them around

cut with the stanly knife the paper away at the places you want uncovered.

5. finished
you can blow the corners with a hair dryer to make them more flat. 
now your done! 
If you dont really like it, you can just pull it of, again is the hair dryer usefull to soften the plastic a bit so you can peel it easier


  1. This is cool. They make everything for the damn iPhone. The rest of us want something nice too. This is the way to go. Thanks!!

  2. Neat! Discovered this via CraftGawker. I'll have to try it :)

  3. Why are non iPhone users so damn bitter about everything? Nice idea!

  4. Also known as "contact paper", and available at home hardware stores like Home Depot. Great idea!

  5. Love it! Looks kind of vintage, like the old radio's with wooden print on it.
