DIY- Decorative Phone Cases

 

Phone cases are a unique way of showing off your personality. Customization in accessories for mobile devices is a growing trend.  Why not take your phone case to another level and do it yourself. So the next time you are out and someone ask “Where can I grab that phone case?” You can say nowhere.

 

1. Printable Templates- Websites like spreadshirt.com offer custom designs to make on   the web for a relative very cheap price. It quite simple to design. Firstly, pick the type of phone you want to design. Next, pick the image by choosing something to upload or one of their presets. In the end, consumers will spend roughly 15 bucks!

 

 

2. Duct Tape- Though this may seem a little old-fashioned, duct tape actually is a part of arts n’ crafts. There are all types of trendy designs that can bring out your personality. So go to your local arts n crafts store like Michael’s and purchase some tape.

 

 

 3. Scrapbook Cut-Outs- Those cut-outs are not limited to your picture album. Be creative and use different cut-outs to fit onto your phone. You can purchase a blank case and use the leftover graphics by applying them on the case with an adhesive like fabric-tac.

 

4. Sharpie- If you are a good drawer, sharpies are your best friend. Simply purchase a white blank phone case and let you imagination run wild!

 

 5. Lace- This is more than likely for the women. If you are trying to give your phone a sexy look, this is the perfect material. It’s very different and noticeable in public! Make sure to use a reliable adhesive to ensure a lasting case like the one stated earlier.

The possibilities are limitless with these DIY phone case projects. These inexpensive artsy projects are easy to produce, and will definitely make your phone feel special.

 Using Apple’s “Taptic Engine”, the watches are able to gently give your wrist a tap when you receive an alert or notification. The IOS is entirely new, but it visually appears like what you are used to seeing by Apple including the retina screen. The screen is so sensitive that it’s able to tell the difference between a tap and a press. With a firm press, you are able to bring up additional controls.

 New Ways to Keep in Touch

Apple Watch takes communicating to another level. The watch is able to personalize taps to let your love ones’ know you are thinking about them. Now that’s what I call a love tap. Even in those special moments when your heart is racing, Apple can visually show your companion your heart rate by gently pressing two fingers on the screen. These are just a few special features, but you can perform essential task like calls and text messages!

Get Healthy… Time is Ticking

Don’t be lazy because Apple Watch will remind you to take a walk. These watches give you a complete overview of your daily activity. The sports watches personally give you real-time stats of popular workout routines. Overtime, the watch will learn your fitness level and suggest personalized fitness goals. That being said, Siri will challenge and encourage you to meet those goals!

How to Host the Ultimate Sports Party

watching basketball

With March Madness in full swing we know many people will either throw or be invited to a March Madness-themed party. Did you know that the average Super Bowl host spends around $118 for their party? While you may not want to spend as much, there are still some easy ways to host the ultimate party. Just follow these tips and you’ll be sure to have people complementing your hosting skills.

 

1. First and foremost be sure your possessions are protected. There’s no telling what the outcome of a game will be and spirited fans can cause chaos. Making sure your most prized belongings are covered can save you a major headache down the line. As we like to say, if it’s important to you, Bubble It.

2. In order to make any sports-themed party a raving success, be sure to incorporate fun trivia and games with silly prizes. Second, be sure that you have sports themed decorations such as plates, napkins, and cups. Fans and party-goers will appreciate the amusement of being able to drink out of a basketball or eat out of a football.

3. Don’t just stop at decorations; make sure your house is also decorated to resemble the field or court. This can be done inside or outside. If you, as the host, don’t cheer for one particular team why not dress like a referee and be the impartial, “rule keeper”? After all, everyone simply wants to have a good time and it also adds a little flair to the overall theme.

4. Lastly, don’t forget to have fun! This time of year is all about some friendly competition and trash-talking. If you’re an eager participator in sports or a mere spectator, remember that having a good time is equally as important as playing or watching the games. And remember, if it’s important to you Bubble It!
