Duck Tape: the miracle material, it can be made into tuxs , boats, planes, wallets and phone cases.  This amazing substance will protect your beloved phone from scratches, drops, and dirt, (and somewhat from water). My phone (Samsung Galaxy Ace) only has two store bought cases available (at least were I am anyways) they are both hard rubber cases and only come in two colors black, and purple. Even with this vary limited selection they cost about $27, way to expensive for me. So with a little creativity and hot glue I came up with a uglyer, but much cheaper case that serves me well. I think that the cost of the materials would probably be around $7. 

Step 1: Materials

Wire (about a foot) 
Ducktape (about 2 m)
Wire Cutters 
Scissors 
Hot Glue (small amount)
Hot Glue Gun 
1 Paper Towel


Step 2: Building The Skeleton

Start by bending a piece of wire around the outer edge of the phone. Make sure it is on the top so that the case can't slip off. Then trim the excess (if need be). Then place the paper towel over the phone so that it sits underneath the wire. Next take a smaller piece of wire and start warming up your hot glue gun. Hot glue one end of the wire about halfway up the body of the phone and then wrap it around, hot gluing the other end into place. Then gently remove the paper towel from underneath ,or you can just trim it and have the duck tape go over top this will add a bit of protection from drops but will also make the case bigger. Then if the hot glue left big lumps trim them so they aren't as large.

This is cool! I need a way without using wire things. I'm not even high school.
