How to Make a Retro Phone Case

vintage how to make an iphone case vintage phone case

I had a few requests from one of my Lately posts that shared the retro iPhone case I made.  This is a super quick, easy project that will certain add that extra retro flair to your vintage outfit.

Here what you need:

1. vintage paper clippings 
I have a bunch of scrap vintage magazines that have the covers and multiple pages missing, so I don't fee bad cutting into them.  You could also scan in the images and print, so you don't cut into your magaizne.

2.  clear phone case
I found mine at Joann Fabrics.  Find some online HERE and HERE

3. pencil/pen

4.  scissors 

Step 1
Find an image you like and see how your insert will work.  My iPhone case came with these inserts, but you could easily make one of your own by tracing the outside of the case and the hole for the camera.

Step 2
Trace around the insert.

Step 3
Cut out the image.

Step 4
Place your new retro insert in the case.

I'd love to see what you come up with if you make one too!


Don't have vintage images, but want to make your own?  Starting in September, I will be offering a slew of vintage graphics and images for instant download in my shop.  In the meantime, I will be offering a reader exclusive free iPhone insert here on the blog.  Check back next week for the freebie.

Great, simple idea. I love the retro phone covers online but don't feel right paying $20 for one case. Now to get a newer iPhone.

GREAT post, dear girl!
Such an easy way to put a little "retro" feel into modern technology.

I am finding a phone case for my iPhone 6. If I get homemade phone case then that will be great. Because those are really strong and very good lasting. www.kultured.co.nz
