Cellphone case


Your phone can be smart and pretty when you add a colorful, abstract pattern. Great for rejuvenating an older case that might have some scrapes or dings.


*May damage some substrates upon removal.

  • Clean the cellphone case to remove oils and dirt. Dry thoroughly.


  • Snip Expressions Washi Tape or Expressions Magic™ Tape into strips between an inch to two inches in length. You can snip as you go.


  • Apply the tape in a way that makes an abstract pattern, overlapping tapes. Let some of the case show through.


  • Don't forget to cover the sides of the case, avoiding openings. Trim any excess tape.


  • EXPERT TIP: Use clear or translucent tape over deeper colors to blend the pattern.
