Hi guys! Today I'm sharing an easy DIY that lets you use your mad pointed-nib calligraphy skills to add some personal flair to your phone case.
It's super simple, but here are some tips:
Make sure you wipe the cellophane with rubbing alcohol - if any oils from your fingers are on it, the calligraphy ink won't adhere properly.
Let the ink dry completely once you've written on the cellophane. This will take a little longer than with regular porous paper.
Once dry, handle the cellophane carefully or the ink will start to flake off. Once it's under your phone case, it'll be safe and snug.
I also recorded a little video of me writing with my pointed-nib calligraphy pen on the cellophane so make sure to scroll down to see that! Enjoy!
And here's a little video so you can see how I wrote lightly with my calligraphy pen onto the cellophane, then went back in to fill in the thicker strokes and swells.
