A Star Wars Case DIY
Y’all! I made a phone case!
I saw that with Galaxy’s Edge opening at Disneyland, many Star Wars nerds were making phone cases so that their phone looked like it matched the rest of the environment while they used the Disney Play app. I really wanted to do the same but use some techniques that pushed me, specifically 3D modeling and printing!
Here’s a list of steps and materials I used! Most links go to Amazon!
