It’s been a little while since I made a craft blog.
My manager was on leave so I took on extra shifts for a few weeks which was very full on, I’m also about to move so have been planning that, I just haven’t have the energy to make anything!
Don’t think I was slack, I was just busy busy :]
So, I was working on a large scale craft when I found out that my family dog was sick and had to be put down, I have put a pause on that project and decided to just make a small quick craft blog for this week.
What you will need:
*Phone Cover (I actually got mine for free, the sales guy was like ‘Srsly just take it’ Saved $5…WOO!)
*Mod Podge, This is a glue and a varnish.
*Medium Paint Brush
*Comic Book. Note: If you don’t want to cut up comic books then just print out some comic book images from the internet, they will give you the same effect.
Cut up your comics into jagged, square and thin pieces. Save some words, speech bubbles and characters that you want to stand out, put these aside for later.
Paint a layer of Mod Podge onto the back of your phone cover.
Start sticking the comic book pieces down; make sure you flatten each piece so there are no air bubbles underneath.
Keep adding Mod Podge and comic pieces until you cover the whole area.
Use thinner strips on the curves to avoid bumps.
You must also wrap the comic book images around the edge of the cover so the sides are all concealed.
Don’t worry about covering any holes; you can cut them out later.
Leave to dry.
Coat back in Mod Podge and start arranging your feature words/characters on the back.
Once Stuck down, coat phone back/sides in one last layer of Mod Podge to seal and protect images.
Leave to dry.
Using scissors or a Stanley knife, cut out any holes you have covered, E.g. camera, speaker etc…
So easy and now you have your own unique customised phone cover.
You don’t have to use comic books. Make one with images you really like.
Zombie phone cover anyone? Mmmmm brains.
