DIY iPhone Cover with Studs

I've been looking for just the right thing to add bling to my iPhone, and I found it.  STUDS!!
 My DIY cellphone cover with studs came together really fast and easy.  First I went online and found flat backed gold studs. (Just google it, and you'll find exactly what you need...) Then I grabbed a package of the Aleene's Jewelry & Metal Glue dry adhesive dots.  These things are crazy cool!
 Next, I used a clear ruler to line up the adhesive dots and stuck them to my animal print cover in rows.  You'll be able to cover the whole thing, or do like I did with four rows of eight,in the center of the phone.  The 1/4" dots fit the bottoms of the studs perfectly.
 I used tweezers to peel off the red backing from the Aleene's Jewelry & Metal Glue dots.
 Then I sat the studs right on top of the dots.  You have to be pretty precise because those boogers really hold fast, and it's tough to pull them off and realign.  Just be patient and take your time.
I didn't have to wait for it to dry, since the adhesive is instant! I hope you like my studly bling.  It added a lot of pizazz to my phone, and makes it totally different than anybody else.  Easy-peasy.  What do you think?
