I like upcycling, repurposing and crafting with my kids

Upcycled Phone Cases from Capri Suns

Some of my flip phone cases, made from foil juice pouches!

These are great fun to make if rather fiddly – the tricky part is shaping the hole for the camera on the back of the case. I took my inspiration from a phone case I bought online which started to fall to pieces after less than a year. I loved the design but surely they could be made to last longer, with more robust materials?

I had already made my phone pouches using Capri Sun packs and foil pouches from other juice drinks, but this required precision, the right type of gel phone cases to hold the device in place, and card to give it structure – in this case, a recycled cereal box (you know me, I love to reuse!)

Still one of my all time favourites!

I love the end result – I have one for my iPhone 5 and have made them for iPhone 7, 6, 4G, Nexus and even a Huawei phone.
