I have an i phone but quite an old model so it's getting harder to get covers for it. I'm also not sure how much longer my phone will last, some of the apps don't work any more and tell me I need to up grade something or other that I don't seem to be able to do.
With this in mind I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a cover that I might not keep for long.
Enter Washi tape!
Cute, pretty, inexpensive but how would it last, would this work for more than a day or two? I figured it was worth a try.
I just stuck it on, snipping it with scissors to go round the important phone buttons and bits and pieces. I spent all of 5 minutes doing this highly skilled and technical task.
Apparently I was so happy with it I forgot to take a photo! Never mind, lets move on..
1 week later it looked like this:
The tape on the ends is not coping with being pulled in and out of my pocket, so off it came.
3 more weeks passed:
Time for a do-over. It all peeled off without leaving any residue and I spent another 5 minutes sticking some more on. This time I went crazy with a diagonal pattern!
So I conclude this is a great temporary way to fancy up something a bit boring. 5 minutes once a month doesn't seem like too much of a time commitment.
Over at As the Bunny Hops Amy has covered an i pad case and protected the tape with mod podge.Seems like a good idea if you want to do something a bit more long lasting and Amy has a great step by step tutorial of what she did.
Krista at While he was Napping covered her phone cover and made it last with Nail Varnish. Isn't it pretty?
