Cell Phone Cover Design Gypsy Style

This week at Frosted Designs, our challenge is "Cell Phone" which means either creating with the pictures from your cell phone, creating a layout about your cell phone or any other project involving your cell phone.

I finally got my new cell phone!!  I got the Samsung LG3.  I am having so much fun with it, but the white cover was a little boring.....

Don't you agree??  I spent a week trying to decide on a design.

I love butterflies and the color purple so I started with some purple vinyl and my Gypsy.

The butterflies come from Paper Lace 2.  I copied and welded the butterflies together around the monogram from Creative Memories Reminisce Accents.  I was inspired by some cell phone covers I saw on Pinterest.

In order to trim the edges of the butterflies, I added a rectangle the same size as my phone.  I did not group or weld the rectangle as I wanted the blade to cut through the design.

My test cut with purple cardstock showed me the size was good.

I loaded my mat with my purple vinyl.  I set my Expression to 3-3-3 (Depth, Speed and Pressure) for a kiss cut.

I weeded the extra cuts with my Cricut Dental Tool.

I used transfer tape to place the vinyl on my phone.  I burnish the vinyl with my scraper and carefully peel off the transfer tape.

Here is my finished design!  I love it and the best part is I can change the design without buying a new cover!!
