Awesome idea and fun, thank you!! I didn't know what you meant by "baking sheet" (wax paper? parchment paper?), so I used saran wrap, centering the back of my phone on the wrap, and taping it tightly around on the front. I also used colored, sparkly glue sticks instead of painting after.

As per a different video, I put coconut oil on the saran wrap. I wish I'd done as recommended in the other video and used a heavy moisturizer instead, because the saran wrap would NOT pull away from the glue. :( I had to use an X-acto knife to cut out EVERY little piece of saran wrap. The other video actually showed using thicker plastic (like a bread bag. Maybe the saran wrap was too thin?

I love your design! Problems with my design were that some loops/swirls were only connected at their base, and would've easily broken off if I hadn't re-wrapped my phone and glued (with more red) to make additional attachments to the swirls (white). You really need to connect every line you draw (like you did).

Also, I do not have a steady hand. :) My case is all bumpy. I tried to use the hot metal tip of the glue gun to smooth things out, but I got impatient and stopped. It would've worked, though.

Also also, I accidentally covered up the speaker and the charging port and the headphone jack. LOL! So, I used a hole punch to make the headphone jack hole, an X-acto knife to cut out around the speaker and charging port. Then I rewrapped to add glue to strengthen where I had made the case weak. I love how easy it was to fix problems on this project!! Thanks for the idea!

I think it's parchment paper :D sorry
My hand wasn't steady either that's why i had to draw the design on the paper first and then trace with the glue..

Yeah, your tip of drawing first is essential! I'm trying that with parchment paper next, thanks!!
