A mobile phone cover is apart of your fashion and often it can say a lot about you, but sometimes, you just can't find the right one for you, so why not make one!

  • How to make a phone case. How To: Comic Book Phone Cover  - Step 1
    Step 1

    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.
    *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!

    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.

    Step 2

    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 craft knife, cut out any holes you have covered, E.g. camera, speaker etc…

    *NOTE* Mod Podge is awesome but is made for decoupage so it not just a sealer but also a glue. I would put a Matt Varnish over the top because the Varnish eliminates any tackiness.
