Craft: Washi Tape Phone Cover

I recently got a new phone.  And with a new phone comes new accessories.  Okay, accessories aren't mandatory but they sure are fun.  At first I thought I was going to go with an owl case.  But can you really be taken seriously when you answer an owl shaped phone?  I don't know?  Then I had my eye on an embroidery phone case.  But I think we all know I have far too many WIP (works in progress) lying around.  The last thing I needed was a half embroidered phone case mocking me.  So, I decided to go with something fun, easy and my style, washi tape.

I started off with a basic white iPhone cover.  Then I just covered it with tape.  One of the great properties of washi tape is that it's low tack.  So if you don't like how the tape looks, you can just pull it off and start again.  It doesn't leave any glue residue either.

I have no idea if there is washi tape in stores near me, but this would definitely solve my 'problem' of a boring phone cover!!!

Awesome idea! I've been toting around a boring black one handed down from a friend - not quite wanting to drop $40 on a customized one. This is perfect, and I can change it up all the time!

Love it! I'd love to know how the tape lasts for you. I did something similar ages ago but I found the tape got dirty too quickly for me - though I am one of those "my phone is an extension of my arm" people! ;)

Omiyage,

So far it has stayed on and stayed clean. Although, I'm a little overprotective when it comes to my phone. I keep it in another bag within my handbag to keep it safe.

Ah, you are better than me! I am rather the opposite of overprotective & had to graduate to a good "bouncy" case. Glad to hear your tape is still looking lovely!

Super cute! I love the owl case too though, but I feel like it could be an equally good Batman case if they tweaked the colors a bit lol.
