Being stuck at home because of the pandemic gives us more time to be creative and do some crafts. Why not create a DIY picture phone case using materials you have lying at home?
There are different ways to make your own phone case (like with the use of a glue gun), but our focus for today is making a customizable picture phone case. You can showcase your love for a celebrity who you admire, your favorite quote, or even your own photo. We are here to show you how quick and easy it is.
Here is a step by step and easy to make personalized phone case perfect as a gift or just something you can do while you’re stuck at home.
Quick and Easy Way to Make Personalized Picture Phone Case
- Heat transfer paper
- A soft clear jelly case for your phone
Step 1: Choose the Design
Download or create your own design on your computer to print. Ready your design and make sure the width matches that of your phone.
Step 2: Print and Cut the Design
Print the design then cut it so that it will fit the width of your case. Align it against the back of the case. Place a piece of tape on top or sides where the print wouldn’t get in the way of the iron.
Step 3: Iron the Design on the Back of the Jelly Case
Get the iron hot and press it on the back of the design onto the back of the soft clear jelly case. Let it cool down for about 5 minutes.
Prepare a bowl with lukewarm water, filled halfway. Submerge the case and let it stand for about 20 minutes.
Step 4: Rub the Heat Transfer Paper to the Rubber
After cooling the heat transfer paper, gently rub it onto the case — applying the print to the rubber. You can also pour more water to the paper while rubbing it off to easily remove the transfer paper.
Remove the remaining paper off until all the print remains. Let it dry then put your phone back in the case.
There you have it, you have a new design for your case!

That took at least a minimum of 10-15 minutes of work, right? This personalized phone case is very easy to make and very customizable too. Just choose your design and iron it on your phone case in an instant.
It’s best to apply the design in the inner portion of the case so that it will be protected from scratches. The design can rub off easily if it’s placed outside. Also, use the best quality paper for a better-looking print.
