If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed my obsession with marble. It all started when I first visited Bottega Louie, a chic restaurant in downtown Los Angeles, fully decorated in marble. I was completely in awe at how it evoked such a beautiful sense of elegance. Personally, I would love to add marble everywhere in my life, from my home to my tech accessories. If you feel the same, here’s how to start it off.

1. Place your cell phone case on top of the backside of the contact paper. Trace around it.

2. Cut out the cell phone shape using your craft knife. Use the metal ruler for the straight edges. Be sure to find a metal ruler with a cork back to be safe (the ruler should not slide around as you are slicing).

3. Peel off the backing of the contact paper. Then, carefully place the sticky side of the cut contact paper onto the cell phone case. Press well to prevent air bubbles.
