I make props for my Scout districts annual Gang Show, and this year I was asked to provide a prop iPhone, I thought oh hell, how do I make an iPhone? Then one day wondering through Tesco I noticed one of those rubber shock absorbing sleeves for iPhones, It contained a cardboard image of an iPhone.... and then it hit me... I could just do the same

So here it is, Biggsy's prop iPhone!

Step 1: Ingredients

So what are you going to need?
  • Cardboard
  • Cutting implement (Knife or scissors which ever your more comfortable with)
  • If you use a knife, you'll need a cutting mat
  • Pencil/Pen
  • Glue & paint brush for application
  • Tissue paper
  • Black paint or a Black marker
  • Colour printer
  • Access to something like Google images
  • Sticky back plastic

Hey why isn't my touchscreen working? Why does my phone seem...papery?
So awesome
I got lucky really, thankfully on stage it looked real enough. Y'know what gave me the idea? I was looking at iphone cases and saw theyhad a peice f card in that looked like an iphone screen :-)
Nice prop!
Thanks Chrys
