Make Your Own iPhone Cover | Craft Ideas

My Grandma used to say, “it’s a wonderful age we live in”.  She was always amazed at how much she had seen in her lifetime. Ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you how much I LOVE my iphone.  I can’t say enough about the iphone. It might be over dramatic to say, but I just don’t know if I could survive with out it! Ha, I could survive, life just wouldn’t be as fun and easy.

I’m always looking for cute covers for my phone but it’s not cheap. So when I saw this idea I was like a giddy little girl.  “Sqweeeeeel”! I ran to Best Buy and Hobby Lobby immediately!

Items needed for this project:

  • Clear plastic phone cover:  I found mine at Best Buy.  It comes with either a white rubber bumper or black rubber bumper.
  • Cute scrapbook paper:  My favorite stores are Joann and Hobby Lobby.  Scrapbook stores will definitely have your biggest selections. 
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

Important tip!  There are lots of cute papers that have raised designs. If you try to use these thicker papers, the cover doesn’t quite come up around all the way.  It’s best to use regular printed paper or thin cardstock.

This is such a inexpensive and simple way to decorate and change up your phone. I would love to see your phone designs! Go to showmecute on facebook and post your pictures!

Super Way Cute Earbud Decorations!

So… When my sisters and I really like something we refer to it as not cute but, “way cute” or “super way cute”! So I’m sharing my descriptive words with you on this project. This is really easy and mindless fun. Perfect for a gift or a project for you and your friends or kids. My kids and especially my nieces love to do projects with me. In fact, I don’t think there is a night that I can just sit and watch tv. I have to be doing something. This may make me weird, I don’t know?

Supplies needed for this project:

Perler Beads– these are the kids craft beads that you use and melt the backside to hold them together. I found a huge jar of them at Michaels but you can find them usually at Hobby Lobby, WalMart, and Target as well.  My large bucket was $10 but I had a 40% of coupon from online that I used.

Ear Buds-Scissors or Box Knife: Please have PARENTAL PERMISSION to use razor if you are under 18!

You can decorate your earbuds for your favorite Sports Team, your school colors, your favorite colors or just random looks really cute as well.  For Valentine’s Day you could give some to your kids in red or pink.
Happy New Year!


Marble Pendant

Hello and Happy New Year! I have had a crazy busy Holiday Season. (Don’t we all say that every year?) But I’m ready to show you lots of cute ideas leading up to Valentine’s Day. This project can be for any use but would also work as a cute Valentine for your kids, friends, or LOVE! I love the dainty and classic look of this necklace. My daughters love it too. It is not always the case that we love the same things.

I saw this online and thought it was oh so cute! It was super easy and one of those instant gratification projects. For supplies, I found mine at Michael’s. But any Hobby or Bead store should have the supplies you will need.

Supplies needed

Marbles–  After much testing, I found that the only marbles you can see the crackle through is the lighter colored plain marbles.  For example: clear, pink or teal.  You want to stay away from dark or patterened marbles.  I got some in a bag in the floral supply section of Hobby Lobby. You can also look in the toy section of some stores.  I also found a marble company in Bonner Springs Kansas called Moon Marble Company.  They were awesome!

Bead Caps– I found the cute studed caps I use in the video @ Michael’s.  You want to make sure that you match your bead up to the cap as to not get one that is too small or too large for the marble.  It needs to be proportionate to the marble.  You will see what I mean when you watch the movie or look at photos of the finished project.

Eye Pins– found in jewelry section of craft stores or bead stores.

O Rings– found in jewelry section of craft stores or bead stores.

Jewelry making tools:  small wire cutters, needle nose pliars, rounded needle nose pliars

Necklace to hang your pendant from!

It was incredibly hard to capture a good picture of this pendant.  It is much cuter than I can photograph.  My camera will not cooperate with my mind….kind of like kids, animals, computers….ah.  Well good luck with your pendant making.  I hope it turns out as cute as your mind envisions!
