Have you ever wanted a quick and easy way to dress up your phone?

Use your scrapbooking supplies to create mini-layouts that you can carry with you. This is a terrific way to use favorite product, showcase a photo, or even show off your child’s artwork.

1. To begin, you’ll need a clear phone cover. These are available at many large department stores, and can also be ordered online. You can usually choose from completely clear, or a clear back with a colored rim.

2. Use this template as your starting point. Important: use the cardboard insert that came with your case as a guide. All cases are slightly different in size!

3. Carefully cut out the template.

4. For a graphics-only cover, layer your favorite scrapbook paper and punched shapes. Trim excess from edges.

5. To add a photo to the cover, print to approximately 1.5" x 1.5" (if printing at a photo lab, ask if they have a “passport size” photo option). Add photo and elements to your template, just as if you were creating a mini layout.

6. Slip your completed cover inside the plastic, and snap onto your phone!

More ideas:

1. Photograph or scan your child’s favorite drawing, and resize to fit within the template.

2. Print several templates on white cardstock & encourage your kids to paint or draw their own designs.

3. Remind yourself of your 2013 focus word, goals, or intentions by adding them to your phone cover.
