Crafthursday: DIY Case/Back-Cover for iPod Touch or iPhone


Hi! I miss posting on my Crafthursday series. So I looked for this one DIY I made and posted on Instagram last year and thought it’d be a nice throwback post. Hehe. Anyway, full details on how to do this after the jump!

IG Caption: “DIY iPod Touch or iPhone back cover for replaceable case design. • Ran out of time to show the finished product but I guess you have the idea. Also, first #InstagramVideo dahil nawala yung kahapon.”

Want to make your own DIY iPhone case design? Just watch the IG video above or follow the instructions below.


  1. Transparent or clear iPod/iPhone case
  2. Pencil
  3. Scissors/X-Acto Knife
  4. Your preferred paper with design (you can use card stock paper, stationery, scrapbooking paper, gift wrapper, etc.)


  1. Trace your case on the paper using a pencil. Make sure to trace the holes too (camera, loop holder, etc.)
  2. Cut out the shapes using scissors or X-Acto knife
  3. Place the cut out design/paper on your case

You can make as many designs as you want and change your cover as often as you like! So easy and way cheaper than buying different cases, yes?

Gah, I still miss my iPod touch so much!!! Huhu. It was supposed to be a year and a month old now but it was stolen from me two months after buying it. It was a really, really, sad and mildly traumatizing experience for me. *cries* 

Anyway, it’s gonna be my birthday next month so if anyone wants to give me an Apple device as a gift, I’ll promise to love you forever! LOL JUST KIDDING OF COURSE! I’m not materialistic. Or am I? Kidding again. Haha!

Seriously though, I’m thinking of getting myself an iPhone or iPad Air OR BOTH! But lately, I just bought new gadgets and still saving for other priority stuff so I guess my craving for Apple will have to wait a little longer.

Sorry, I babble! I hope you like this throwback DIY tutorial. ^_^

I’m curious…
Which do you prefer, iOS or Android?

      Ooh, programmer/developer ka na pala? 🙂 I’d gladly trade my Nokia/Windows Phone for iPhone or a good Android phone! I used to want a Blackberry din before but it seems to have so many issues na? Ako naman, I want Macbook Pro! Hay, oo nga, dapat mayaman tayo e! Haha! Thanks, sis! <3

    I think I’d fail in the tracing part haha 🙂 I still prefer iOS over Android. I dont know, I find Android too busy and looks overly complicated as compared to Apple’s operating system hehe.
