It’s officially summer y’all, and we’ve come up with a little seasonal refresh for everyone’s favourite accessory. With a few tools and some colour paper, we whipped up a floral phone case that is sure to look ace in flatlays all summer long. 👌 Learn how you can make your own with our instructions below.
You will need:
- A blank phone case for your phone – it can be transparent or a solid colour – whichever you prefer
- Resin – you’ll need both the hardener and the resin. Luckily they’re usually sold in sets like this.
- Mixing cups
- Mixing rods
- Colour paper
- Exacto blade
- Lighter (not pictured)
- Cutting mat (not pictured)
Arrange the cutouts on the back of the phone case (i.e. on the outside of the case) until you get to a composition that you like. Then glue them down (use a clear drying adhesive if your phone case is transparent).
Mix the resin & hardener according to package directions. The resin we used is mixed 1:1 with the hardener, but that may not be the case for every kit. You’ll need just under 2 oz of resin in total once mixed.
Then spread the mixture carefully with a dowel or stir stick over your cutouts without going over the edge.
There may be a fair amount of air bubbles in the resin – but don’t fret, all of them can be removed with a little heat. Use the lighter and move quickly over the resin bubbles to watch them pop and disappear. Do this over the entire case to ensure a clear finish. Then wait for everything to dry thoroughly (usually 2 days+).
& there you have it!
Perfect for a summer #flatlay with a cappuccino 😉
