swarovski™ create your style™ initial bling phone case

Step 1
Click here to download and print the dotted circle template, or design your own and print out onto white cardstock.   
Step 2
Place your clear phone case over the printout, face down, and align where you would like the design to appear. Trace your phone case shape. Be sure to trace all of the openings. Cut out the shape and openings. 
Step 3
Trace and cut out the bottom part of your phone case, about two-thirds up, on a piece of Aqua embossed cardstock.
 
TIP: Choose from a variety of cardstock colors and designs from your favorite Michaels store or online.
Step 4
Align the Aqua cutout piece on top of the white phone case shape and attach with a piece of washi tape across the top of the Aqua piece. Wrap side around to the back and smooth down to make it flush. 
Step 5
Place the cutout inside the phone case with the design facing outward. 
 
TIP: For added stability, if your phone case came with a foam shaping insert, place this back inside the case, behind the cutout. If not, you can place anything small enough to provide firm surface. If you place your phone inside, you will need to be very careful when removing, to allow time for the glue to dry.
Step 6
Before adding crystals to the phone case, wipe it down with an alcohol wipe in order to remove smudges or marks that might prevent the crystals from sticking.  
Step 7
Use the Katana tool to arrange the crystals in the desired letter, or design, inside the printed dotted circle (or design) seen through the clear phone case.
 
TIP: Find a font you like on your computer, print, cut it out and tape it to the inside of your phone before you insert the cutout in Step 5. Be sure to align where it will be in the center of the dotted circle (or design). Use it to "trace" with the crystals. Once the glue dries, remove everything from the phone case, including the taped letter, and replace the cutout and phone.
Step 8
One at a time, lift up the crystals, place a dot of glue from the glue pen and press the crystals into place. Let them dry according to packaging instructions.
