Free iPhone Screen Cover!

We are still settling into our new home and enjoying our neighborhood. When the rain finally stopped and the sun came out, I decided to take a walk with my poodle pooch, Robbie.

I always take my phone with me when I walk, just in case I get an important call or message. Well, my phone dinged and I stopped to pull it out of my pocket to check on who was messaging me. Robbie doesn’t like me to stop when he is walking, so naturally he pulled a bit on his leash and down my phone went! Of course it landed face down on the sidewalk!

Smashed iPhone, iPhone,cracked screen,

If you’re like me, you can’t be without your cell phone. ( I can’t believe I lived without one for most of my life! However did I manage!)
A new phone was needed immediately!

If you are also like me, you hate setting foot into a cell phone service store! I don’t mean to disrespect the employees, but I do disrespect the high prices on the services and products they have to offer. Like the $40 screen protector they wanted me to buy! I just spent over $500 on a phone and now you want me to spend more? I could get a less expensive screen protector somewhere else.

So, I did. I spent $15 on a screen protector that was supposed to be every bit as good as the higher priced ones. Yea, I know. My husband gave me the “You get what you pay for” look. When I carefully put it on my phone, the ‘bubbles’ would not come out! It was a mess! (In my frustration, I failed to get a picture of it.). Needless to say, it was taken off after several attempts to smooth it out.

I just wasted money, but I knew I needed something to protect the face of my phone, especially since I keep it a little case that also holds a few essential cards & cash. I was not going to spend another $40, so I decided to come up with my own solution.

This idea works for me. It is easy to flip the cloth over to see the screen when I use it. I tilt the phone a bit when I close it and the fabric cloth falls into place so I can close my phone case. It also keeps my screen cleaner and didn’t cost me a dime!

Every now and then I offer up an idea that has nothing to do with designing handmade cards. So this is another little creative tip that I hope will be useful for someone!

Thanks for visiting today and I wish you another creative day!
