iPhone Wallet




Freebies, I love 'em! Seriously it doesn't matter what is being given away, if it's free I want it! Even more than that, I love it when I wasn't supposed to get the freebie but they give it to me anyway. So the other day, I walk into the local bottle shop (wine run) and the guy behind the counter is giving the person in front of me a free iPhone wallet. So when it's my turn I say, "How about a wallet?", the other girl working in there says "It only comes with the beer." and walk away. So I smile at the guy and say, "come on mate, I'm always here", because I've forgotten I'm no longer young and cute and that doesn't work anymore - but apparently middle aged and desperate does because he hands it over, SCORE!!

Then I walk out grinning like an idiot, thinking how awesome, until realize, it's ugly! Worse it has the beer logo and a football on it, did somebody say makeover!!!!






So I covered it with Houndstooth contact paper I had left over from such fab projects as this, this and of course this.



Then I thought, she's a little boring, this girl needs to be blinged! So I dug around my random craft supplies and found this blingy M sticker


And called her done!




DIY Delight or Disaster? Free junk's cool! DELIGHT!  Actually I love it!

What's the last freebie you got?

Thanks for reading,

  1. This post made me laugh...hard. How funny. So glad you still scored the free cover. I swear, if you came here with your lovely accent and called someone mate, you'd probably end up with just about anything you wanted for free!

    The iphone wallet looks so much better after. And, I love how the inside still has the contrasting color. Brilliant!

  2. Free is free ! Love how you changed it and of course your post is just hilarious ..lol! {I would rather not take the chance over here by calling someone "mate" - good grief, it'll send me to jail faster than I could have said it again!}

    1. Ha ! Found it - think I saw something similar at the Chinese market which will be big enough for my e-reader {pinning this again on my to-make-board} and I do think I'll add an " L " with bling also !

  8. Oh you were brought up correctly Mel....I too love a good freebie. But, as in this instance it was a ghastly freebie, I love love love what you have done with it. What I call the David Jones emblem/fabric is my favourite pattern of all time. I knew we had so much in common. Great choice and great makeover.

  9. That made me laugh Mel! I can see the swagger - "Mmm this girl's still got what it takes!" and then the realisation that it was sooo ugly!! Love the makeover - great recovery!! ;-)

  11. I'm killing myself laughing here because I will take any useless or ugly free thing that is being handed out! I will now go through drawers of freebies and see if I can actually using them if I dress them up with some contact paper and bling. Anyone need a plastic rain hat, melon knife or calendar? I have lots of them if you need one!
