d.i.y. phone cover

IMG_9596Apparently if you don’t have an iPhone or HTC you aren’t allowed a cute phone cover. The color choices for a smart phone of average intelligence, range from black to blacker. Although I did find a TARDIS, so that was cool, but other than that the selection is a total pisser. So here’s a quick little do-it-yourselfer i whipped up this afternoon.
