Shimmer Sheetz

Shimmer Sheetz Sunday: Liners for Smart Phone Cases + GIVEAWAY

December 31, 2017

By Judi Kauffman

Happy New Year! Elizabeth Craft Designs is celebrating the start of 2018 with a Shimmer Sheetz Sunday Giveaway! Three lucky winners will each receive three 5″x12″ 3-sheet packs of Shimmer Sheetz in the colors of your choice. Leave a comment about today’s project or any other project featuring Shimmer Sheetz (your own or something from the ECD blog) at the end of this post by January 4 to enter the random drawing. Winners’ names will be announced on January 7.

This is my last Shimmer Sheetz Sunday post for 2017 and it’s all about getting a new wardrobe for 2018…one that doesn’t require shedding ten pounds, needs no trip to the mall, costs very little and you can make it yourself! No, we’re not talking about clothes – this wardrobe is for your smart phone!

When I went to get a new protective case for my phone I couldn’t find anything that seemed just right, so I bought a simple translucent gray one, but it was so boring and plain that I took matters into my own hands: I made a Shimmer Sheetz ‘liner’ for it! A piece of Turquoise Gemstone and an embossing folder with a bird, and my phone was suddenly a thing of beauty instead of a simple black rectangle.

I showed it to a friend who thought that the concept was fabulous. She also suggested that I buy a transparent case instead, and that made an enormous difference – as you can see from the photos below. She bought herself a transparent case for her iPhone and put me to work making phone case liners for her.

I was off and running…They take about five minutes each, start to finish!

Not only did I make seven liners for my friend, I made eight more for myself. We’re dubbing it a ‘wardrobe’ for our phones! (I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been using a LOT of exclamation points…This project makes me so happy!!!!!!!!!!!!)

I can change the look of my phone as often as I want, matching it to an outfit or an event, a holiday or a season. I have quite a collection of embossing folders!!!

Shimmer Sheetz is feather-weight Mylar so the liners are durable and do not interfere with the fit of the protective case or with my wireless charger.

 

TIPS and DESIGN STRATEGIES:

If your protective case is clear, the color of the Shimmer Sheetz won’t change when it’s placed underneath, but it will change if the case is translucent. Test the Shimmer Sheetz to see what color looks good to your eye. When I made my first liner I only had the translucent gray phone case, so I tested small swatches of Shimmer Sheetz until I settled on Turquoise Gemstone. As soon as I got the clear case I could use any color (there are over 20) and all three different categories – Iridescent, Gemstone, and Metallic!

 

When sanded, Shimmer Sheetz Gemstone colors reveal a silver metallic core. When sanded, Shimmer Sheetz Iridescent colors reveal a white opaque core while Metallic colors sand down to transparent. Keep this in mind when choosing your color(s).

There will be less contrast, but more sparkle, if you skip the sanding.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Trace the case and cut out a paper pattern. Test, adjust and re-cut till it’s the perfect fit inside the phone case, then cut a piece of Shimmer Sheetz to size. Test, adjust, and trim the Shimmer Sheetz if needed.

 

  1. Place the Shimmer Sheetz into an embossing folder*, moving it around until the pattern is precisely where you want it to appear. Run it through the embossing machine. (*If your embossing folder is shorter than your phone, emboss the top third with one pattern, re-insert the Shimmer Sheetz and emboss the bottom two thirds with a second design – or more of the first pattern.)

 

  1. To add a bit of contrast, lightly sand the surface. Wipe off the sanded ‘dust’ with a damp paper towel, dry with a dry paper towel.

 

  1. Insert the embossed Shimmer Sheetz under the protective case and put the case on your phone.

 

Enjoy!

    I love using Gemstone Shimmer Sheetz with a variety of Embossing folders, and either sanding to reveal the silver core, or using Black StaysOn ink to highlight the raised part of the embossed image. So very versatile 🙂

    Were these always called Shimmer Sheets? I have one or 2 from years ago, probably the 80’s or 90’s? We got them from a stamp store or craft store no longer in business. You could stamp on them they told us. They also said you could put them in water and mold them like that. This was way before embossing folders were ever invented. I loved them! However, I don’t have an embossing folder so stamping on them would be the way to go for me. I wish I could remember how they taught us to do that but I would love to have more. I think it was dry stamping not inked. You could also use them to make jewelry, earrings I think. I love what you did! It looks really nice.

    • Reply Judi Kauffman January 2, 2018 at 5:37 pm

      Gail, you might be thinking of some kind of plastic sheets that would mold in hot water, but it’s not Shimmer Sheetz. If I recall correctly, the plastic you’re remembering was a lot thicker and sometimes sold as ‘sticks’ about the size of bookmarks, as well as larger pieces. If you stamp on Shimmer Sheetz for your case, be sure to use StazOn or another kind of ink that dries on NON-porous surfaces, not one that needs to be heat set.

    A very ingenious use of Shimmer Sheetz! I love this product and have found that it cuts like butter in my Silhouette electronic cutter. It’s amazing how just a touch really brightens a card front. I’ve already used to on several cards and will be using it on many more in the future – when used in small “doses” it can be used for both female and male cards.

      Debbie, I hope this reply reaches you…I want to clarify something – Shimmer Sheetz is Mylar, a kind of plastic, not paper, and it’s waterproof, too. Just in case you need to clean the phone case liners, or if you make your own sequins or spangles for decorating scarves, or plant picks that will get ‘watered.’

    I have to say that those phone case covers are a lot prettier then some you see in the stores. And they seem easy enough to change them for different seasons or even outfits you plan on wearing. I just love that shimmer paper. Happy New Year!!!

    • Reply Judi Kauffman January 2, 2018 at 5:49 pm

      Thank you…And best of all they are so much less expensive than ones from the stores. Once you own a clear phone case (around $10 to $12 in the US) a single 5″ x 12″ piece of Shimmer Sheetz yields either two or four case liners, depending on the size of your phone. (Many, like mine, measure only around 2.5 x 5 inches so that would make four phone case liners for under three dollars, assuming you already have embossing folders)

    That is a similar idea to what I did – I printed a digital stamp on contact paper with my laser printer and placed it on the inside of a clear phone case for my phone. The shimmer sheets must be thin to accommodate your cases – I have never tried them.

    WOW! This IS So Cool! DIY Custome Phone Case! Woo Hoo! Shimmer Shhetz may or may not be wide enough to make a “wine glass” lampshade. I made one with 40# Vellum, oil pastels, pergamano tools…came out really nice. I happened to have rose color wine glasses and water resistent LED clear and multi color battery lights. which I used in place of tea lights. Very pretty as a night light in one’s bedroom, bathroom, living room or where a bit of light is needed. Romantic idea for Valetnine’s Day! You Really DO Think Outside the Box when it comes to creating Beautiful, Unique, Creative Works of Art! Great Job Judi! Well done!

    • Reply Judi Kauffman January 2, 2018 at 5:55 pm

      KarenHTK, I don’t know how large a wine glass lampshade would need to be, but I’ve made decorative wraps for cupcakes so it might be big enough. Shimmer Sheetz comes as 3-sheet packs in a single color, 5″ x 12″ (as well as samplers with multiple colors, but those are smaller pieces – 4″ x 5″). Battery-operated candles only for sure, just like you did with Vellum.

      And it makes me glad I have a lot of embossing folders and a good excuse to buy more, Raquel! (not that I ever needed an excuse…embossing folders are one of my favorite things, right up there with chocolate…)

    These are pretty cool! I think these sheets would be great for making small lampshades to go on your night stand.

      Shimmer Sheetz shouldn’t be near heat, so Elizabeth Craft Designs doesn’t recommend it for lampshades because light bulbs can get so hot. But you could wrap a glass votive holder and use a BATTERY-operated tea light for bedside.
