Make your own Iphone Case

I wanted a case for my phone that was sleek looking, cheap and durable. This idea is so clever and takes literally 5 minutes to make, as well as being super cheap, and most probably free! The only negative of this tutorial is that it only really works for the Iphone 4 and Iphone 4s. It could work on an Iphone 5 but the plastic band would be very stretched, and you can always try it on an Iphone 3 by cutting the band a little thinner or something, if you do end up trying that, leave us a comment letting us know how it went!


1. Scissors
2. A plastic band
3. An Iphone (Obviously)
4. Marker or pen

Start by Pulling the plastic bracelet around the phone. Then draw over the earphone hole, dock connector, speakers and volume buttons. Lastly cut around the lines you drew as neatly as possible and Stretch the plastic back onto your phone. You can always go back and fix any mistakes once you've seen it on the device.

Thats all there is too it! So simple, just make sure you don't cut the holes for the speakers and other parts to big because when you stretch it onto the Iphone the sides might snap if they are overly thin. I was super happy with the end result and I think this is a great way to re-use old plastic bracelets you might have lying around the house.
