You no longer have to buy a new pouch when you can make one, and in fact, make as many as you want so that you can now change your phone's case, say every week, if you want. Probably give it out as a gift to friends and family.

Materials needed

2. Piece of fabric cloth (Gum stay)

3. Glitter paper

4. Velvet material (or any other material of choice)

5. Glue


1. Cut the cardboard box into two rectangle shapes using the  shape of the phone as measurement
