iPhone Halloween Costume

Following are some notes on how I made my son’s iPhone costume:
• Apple logo and “iPhone” text on back cut on Silhouette machine using Stampin’ Up silver card stock.
• Icon squares cut out of white cardstock and corner rounder used. My son drew the icons with colored pencils. The icons were attached to the foam core by using a large Xyron machine to apply adhesive to the backs.
• Used Illustrator to design and print out all text and graphic elements (bars, time, battery, etc.) on a black background. All pieces were then cut and glued onto the black foam core board with a glue stick.
• All circular elements (camera on back, circles on bottom front, red number circles on front) cut out with circle punches of various sizes.
• Covered front and back of costume with clear cellophane wrap to imitate the shiny surface of the phone. Attached cellophane with lots of black duct tape. (This also gives the added bonus of making the costume waterproof.)
• Shoulder straps made of 1-1⁄2″ thick grosgrain ribbon secured to costume with more black duct tape.
