I’ve been wanting a blinged-out, bedazzled, crystalized cell phone case for a long time.  However, I was having a really tough time finding a case that I really liked.  The more I searched, the more frustrated I was getting.  All of the cases I saw online or in-store were not to my liking (either not a color I liked, or not a design I liked).  I found a few online shops that offered customizing services, but those options were extremely expensive.  Not only were the crystalized cases I found very expensive, I was also unsure of the quality of the cases.

Soooo, I gave up on trying to find a ready-made crystalized cell phone case that I thought was “the one” & decided to make my own custom cell phone case.  By doing this, I was able to choose the materials I wanted, & I was able to customize my case however I liked.  Also, I found this method to be quite cost saving, & it gave me a sense of self-accompishment.  Well, here’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for.  Let’s take a look at my finished DIY project.

my finished project: custom iPhone case

Aleen’s Platinum Bond Glass & Bead crafting glue used in my project

my private collection of Swarovski crystals & plastic rhinestone beads

Materials Used:

  1. pink plastic shell cover for iPhone 4/4s (color: sweet pink w/ glitter effect)
  2. mixed rhinestone beads
  3. Swarovski crystal beads
  4. crafting bond glue

I bought this inexpensive case from an online Japanese retailer that ships overseas to most countries.  I also got all the rhinestone beads from Etsy.  The Swarovski crystals came from my own private crafts supplies collection.  After arranging & gluing all of the beads, I allowed the crafting glue to set & dry for at least 1 full day before using the case.  Et voilà!  There you go.  That’s the end of it. ❤
