Blinged Out Calculator Cover

By:

Make math exciting with this Blinged Out Calculator Cover from I Love to Create!  This crystal bling decoration can be applied to anything from your calculator cover to your cell phone.  Make your accessories sparkle with this cute "geeky craft"!

Blinged Out Calculator Cover

Materials:

  • Calculator with cover
  • Tulip Glam-it-Up PDA Crystal Set in red and clear crystal
  • Scrapbook paper or cardstock
  • Heart stencil (we used the Fiskars 3" heart shaped template, cutting out the center of the heart using the 2.5" stencil.)
  • Aleene's Tacky Dot Runner
  • Fiskars Hearts Template and Cutting Tool
     

Instructions:

  1. Use template and tool to create open center heart using cardstock or scrapbook paper.
     
  2. Use tape runner to add a little stick to the back of the stencil and adhere to the center of the calculator cover. Be sure cover is clean.
     
  3. Starting from outside work your way to the center of the heart adding crystals as in photo. Alternate between red and clear crystals until you reach the center red crystal. Remove stencil and wipe any glue residue away.
     
  4. Use the crystals to frame the outer edge of your calculator cover. Work only on the hard areas, leave the soft areas uncovered. There are 16 clear crystals at the top and bottom with 15 red crystals directly beneath them. On the sides there are 5 clear crystals on the top sides and 22 clear crystals on the bottom sides. This is a TI-inspire calculator, so adjustments will need to be made if using a different model. This calculator cover is 3"x8".
     
  5. To create the x patterns, form a v shape with five clear crystals at the point of your heart. Add a second 10 crystal v shape using the red crystals. Create a 15 crystal v shape using the clear crystals. Repeat this pattern to form a mirror of the top half as in picture. Add 10 red crystals in the open areas of the center crystal x as in picture. Repeat this process at the top of your cover.
     
  6. Check back to be sure all crystals are securely applied. Now get to that math homework already!
