If you have questions, or have any ideas on how to improve this instructable, please comment in the comment section.
Let's Get Started!!!

Step 1: Materials:

- A Phone (duh)
- Duct Tape
- Clear Tape (optional)
- Craft Knife (optional)
- A small Ziplock Bag
- Hot Glue gun and Glue sticks
- And anything else you think you might need :)

Step 2: Wrapping the Phone

Why? Because if you don't, there is a chance that it will dramatically overheat during the next few steps, which may cause system damage.
Put the phone into the Ziplock bag and secure with Tape, as shown in the Pictures included.

Step 3: Creating the "frame"

Using your Hot Glue gun, carefully "draw" on the covered-up phone. Be careful to not melt the ziplock bag with the tip/nozzle of the glue gun.
Remember to leave spaces for the volume button , the on/off button , etc. (Leave the screen uncovered duh.)

Step 4: Removing the Frame

Using scissors, gently cut away pieces from the ziplock bag, thus uncovering the screen, buttons, and charging holes.
Take care not to scratch your phones screen.
Slide the case off and get ready for the next step.

Step 5:

Step 6: Finished!
