As much as I love my iPhone, I seem to misplace and drop it to the extent where that must look pretty questionable. I don’t do well with phone cases, so I made a new home for my phone out of an old book.
for this project, you will need:
- a phone
- a hardcover book that is larger than said phone
- a pencil
- paper glue
- a pencil
- a piece of ribbon
- an Xacto knife
- a brush or sponge of some sort
place your phone where you plan on it being planted
trace the phone with a pencil
cut into he outlined area, a few pages at a time
continue cutting into the pages, being aware that as you get further into the book, the pages are going to try to shift your alignment.
So make sure that you’re pages are aligned, by making an L shape with your book before cutting
cut until your phone becomes flush with the book
then start gluing. Starting from the back of the book, place some glue on the page and even it out with a brush.
This helps make sure that the pages don’t get wet and wavy because of the glue.
on the last full page, glue only around the edges and attach a ribbon. Since its right below the phone, the ribbon helps pop the phone out of the book. Not to mention that it really works like a bookmark, while gluing the pages. Every couple of pages of gluing, press the pages together to make sure that everything is properly aligned. The ribbon is a good marker that helped me remember where I left off.
Let it dry overnight, and then you have the worlds most overpriced book!
