Makeful Challenge: Cellphone Cases from Francois et Moi

5-Minute Watercolor Phone Case

Francois et Moi

My cell phone was in desperate need of a new cover. The old cracked and chipped metallic gold case just wasn’t cutting it anymore, so it was perfect timing that Makeful’s next challenge was a cell phone cover! With summer in full swing, I decided to spring for a refreshing blue watercolor design. Using a water brush and watercolor paints, I created a horizontal striped pattern on medium weight paper. Then I used my actual phone as the template to cut out the cover liner, before sliding it into place inside the cover. The entire project took about 5 minutes and can easily be switched out as my tastes evolve with the seasons!
