Give your phone case an simple, sparkly upgrade quickly and easily with vinyl. Create your own unique design in minutes!
When I got my new phone last year, I ordered a clear case right away because I didn’t want to cover up that pretty rose gold finish that I was so excited about. And I did like the clear case quite a bit, but it didn’t have much personality.
This month, Expressions Vinyl challenged me and a few other ambassadors to make something with their awesome transparent glitter vinyl, and I knew it was the perfect opportunity to add some flair to my clear case while still letting the color of the phone shine through.
I made two cases – one super simple glitter case and one with a fun triangle pattern. Both were really easy to make with the vinyl.
Here’s everything you need to make your own:
Supplies (I have included affiliate links for your convenience below):
- Clear Phone Case
- Transparent Glitter Vinyl
- Weeding Tool
- Craft Knife
- Silhouette Cameo or Electronic Cutting Machine (optional)
- My Triangles SVG file
For the plain glitter case, I simply cut a piece of holographic vinyl about the same size as my case. I pressed the vinyl into the back of the case and smoothed out all the bubbles with my fingers. Then I used my craft knife to carefully trim the edges.
And that’s it! This one is so super simple, but I really love the way it looks on the phone.
The second case I made has a slightly more complex design, but it was also super easy to put together. I started by cutting a bunch of triangles out of four colors of the transparent glitter vinyl. I used my silhouette to cut them, but scissors or a craft knife would work just as well.
If you have an electronic cutting machine, you can download my triangles SVG file HERE. After the triangles are cut, use a weeding tool to peel off the negative space.
Next, I placed the triangles onto the inside of the back panel of the phone case. I started by lining up the base of one triangle with the bottom of the camera hole.
Then I filled in triangles around that triangle and moving down the phone. Where triangles went off the back panel, I used the craft knife to trim off the excess.
I just kept adding triangles until I was happy with the overall design.
So easy, right? Two new sparkly, transparent cases in just a few minutes time!
