Hey guys! Every summer for the past couple of years, I’m sure you’ve seen the pressed flower phone cases literally everywhere. And it makes 100% complete sense! They’re adorable, inexpensive and supposedly easy…right? The problem is, I haven’t been able to find one good tutorial on how to do them. So, I decided to make an easy tutorial that doesn’t require you to glue flowers to a phone case (or your phone XD) and all you need is a clear phone case and some pretty flowers!
First and foremost, go get a clear phone case, you can get a super inexpensive one or use a more expensive one. Here is the one I’m using, but if you have a different phone there are quite a few clear cases on Amazon for under $5. Also, just a heads up, after a while of use, clear phone cases have a tendency to get a little dirty, so if you already have one and it’s a little dingy, don’t be afraid to take a magic eraser to it to clean it up.
Next, you’ll need to gather your flowers! I like to stick to at least a little bit of a color scheme, but if you’d prefer not to, that’s totally fine! 😉
You can press flowers in a book and wait for several weeks for them to be pressed, or you can do in a few minutes with your microwave. I personally prefer the microwave option, so I’ll show you how to do that today, but there are many other options for pressing flowers, so don’t be afraid to do some research on the topic.
Begin by placing all your flowers in an old book and leave them overnight.
The next morning, the flowers should be pretty flat, but not dried out yet. To dry them out, place the book in a microwave and zap for 30 seconds. Let them cool for a couple minutes and you’ll have pressed flowers! They pretty much retain their colors like they would if you waited weeks for them to dry.
Now for getting the flowers into the phone case. Begin by taking some contact paper and simply tracing around the phone case. I just kept trimming mine until it fit snugly into the case. Don’t forget to cut a hole for your camera!
Your flowers should be pretty cool by now, so arrange them as you like in your phone case. You can just add a couple of flowers, or you can fill your case! Also, make sure none of the flowers are overlapping on the sides. You don’t want them to interfere with the buttons on the side of your phone.
Next, simply press the contact paper into place. Make sure to press it down pretty well.
And there you have it! A super easy pressed flower phone case, no glue required! If you ever want to change the design/remove the flowers, just peel back the contact paper. Super easy!
I hope you guys enjoyed this little tutorial! It’s seriously so easy & inexpensive and it only took me about 15 minutes to assemble! 😁
