Glitter iPhone Case {or why not!}



I've had my iPhone 4 for a little over a year now. I try to be nice to it. However, I'm not the most graceful person on earth. It's had a few falls. I've made sure to always keep it in the case to protect the phone. As a result, the case has seen better days. 


I bought this case with my phone. I think it was like $15. I really loved the color and how thin it was. An instance involving my phone and a wall led to a pretty nasty crack in it. Rather than buy a new case, I decided to finally use the glitter I picked up on a whim. 


I super glued the crack and let it dry for about thirty minutes. I then painted on a layer of Mod Podge and dumped glitter all over it. I let it dry about an hour before I put a thick top coat of Mod Podge on. I let that coat drive over night before I painted on another top coat. I let the whole thing dry over night again before putting it to use.


I've been using the case for about a week now and Its showing no signs of wear. There has been no random glitter showing up places. The case does feel a bit tacky. But, nothing has embedded itself into it. I've also got a ton of complements on it! Surprisingly, only one has been from a thirteen year old girl!

If I was to do it again, I'd use a much finner glitter. I would have loved to use Martha Stewart's fine glitter. But, that glitter costs an arm and a leg and the kind I used was $1!. Maybe next time?

Come Party with me!
