Wanting to make a unique and affordable iPhone skin, San Diego-based designer Robert Magno decided to work with what he already had: boxes. “I’ve been noticing that there are a lot of products that have packaging with great graphics,” Magno writes on his Kickstarter page. “This is a way to extend the life of the artwork on those boxes.” Magno hand-cuts the skins from actual boxes and applies a removable adhesive; and he says the skin still leaves plenty of clearance for the camera port and flash. Sure, they may look like ads for Hershey’s and Kellogg’s, but they’ll keep your phone from getting scratched!
