Ombre Orchid Chevron Tablet Case

Beautify your tablet device with this DIY craft project tutorial for the Ombre Orchid Chevron Tablet Case. You can personalize this case from the colors of the ombre paint to the chalk writing on the section made from chalkboard paint. Everyone who sees your tablet case will wonder where you bought such a cool case, but you can proudly tell them that you made it yourself! This craft is classified as intermediate because it involves a bit of sewing and a lot of painting, but all that work is worth it.
