DIY: Metallic Gold Leopard iPhone Case + InCase Giveaway

Regardless of if your Team iPhone or Team Blackberry, our phones have become an extension of our arm and therefore an important fashion accessory. There’s nothing wrong with adding a little excitement to your cell phone case. I personally love my metallic gold iPhone case because it makes it easier to find in the bottomless pit I call a purse. This project is so fun you might end up keeping it for yourself…

Materials: iPhone Case (available at InCase), Gold Leaf Starter Kit (available at Michael’s), Paint Brush

**Be sure to read and follow the instructions provided in your kit**

Apply the gold leaf applicator. Allow to dry for 30 mins.

Use wax paper to help apply the gold foil evenly. Brush off any access foil.

Paint on your leopard design. If leopard isn’t your thing, consider painting on initials to add a personal touch.

After the paint has dried, apply the sealer included in the kit and let dry.

Who doesn’t love a metallic gold leopard iPhone case?!?

Paparazzi always in my business… lol #FantasyWorld

I switched to team I phone over a year ago. Don’t get me wrong, I L.O.V.E. my iPhone but I really miss my bbm. So I’m curious…

Question: iPhone or Blackberry? And if you have a iPhone what are your favorite apps?

As of right now I have ZERO apps on my phone besides Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Maybe if I’d download some cool apps I woudn’t miss my bbm so much. Fill me in, what are the iPhone apps I must have? Are there any good fashion ones? Leave your answer below. Contest ends tonight at 9pm pst and with the help of a fancy number generating system, a number will be selected. If your answer falls in the comment box that corresponds with the selected number…you win an iPhone case from InCase AND a gold leaf starter kit! Don’t worry if you don’t win today because we’re playing this game all week! Each day is a new DIY project, a new prize and a new chance to win. Trust me this project is so fun you might end up keeping it for yourself!

  2. I recommend the Facebook Messenger app, Skype, Etsy…for fashion I like Uniqlooks. Voxer is a new one I got…it’s free, turns your iPhone into a walkie talkie! Oh & for games I love Temple Run & Angry Birds. Both are addictive!

  3. WhatsApp is unmissable for me, it’s a free instant messager used more than BBM over here in the Netherlands 🙂 Also, Tiny Wings is the cutest and most addictive game around!

    Iphone is awesome! Apps that are fun are- Flava- a great way to keep track of random ideas, thoughts, websites. Its my “creative” notebook! Also, The Christmas List app is perfect for right now…keeps all your gifts/gifts to buy organized in groups and individuals, with stores/$ spent. A wonderful way to stay on top of Santa’s list!

    I once had a BB. I had it for 2 yrs, but knew it was time to upgrade to the iPhone, so I got the 4S. Siri reads my texts to me when I can’t read it myself or types a text for me; what more can you ask for. :). My favorite apps are Words with Friends, Hanging with Friends, Pandora, Yahoo Music, Shoutcast, BestParking an Cardstar.
