When it comes to gifts, I enjoy giving and receiving homemade ones the best. I love the attention, affection and detail that goes into creating these beautiful things. Mother's Day is no exception. Since I was little, I have been hand-crafting gifts for my mom. My mother loves to garden. Most warm days, this is where I can find her, outside among her lovingly tended plantings. She especially treasures flowers so this year as one of her gifts, I decided to embellish a cell phone case with lovely pressed pansies to help celebrate her special day.

Supplies:

  • Pressed flowers
  • Plain cell phone case
  • Scissors
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam brush
  • Jewelry resin kit
  • Shoe box
  • Nail polish remover 
  • Q-tips
  • Paper towels

Now, follow the steps in the photo gallery below to learn how to make your very own cell phone case.
