Steampunk the iPhone
Steampunk the iPhone!
I love Steampunk and I was looking into purchasing an iPhone cover with a Steampunk flair. Epic fail. The price of an awesome cover was outrageous to my financially conscientious mind (bargain shopper here) and I said, "Hey! I can make my own!"
I started by purchasing a clear cover (Amazon for $1.99) and cutting a piece of brown leather to fit the outside frame of the clear case. TIP: use the clear cover that protects your iPhone screen as a template.
After I cut the leather in my desired shape, I applied E6000 to the back of the clear case and stuck the leather to the case. I then used my metal gears and cogs (Tim Holtz) to make my design. I glued these pieces onto the leather with E6000 as well.
Epic WIN! You can try this for any phone cover. Enjoy!~€
