DIY Studded Mobile Cover

Here is how I made a studded cover for my Samsung Galaxy II phone. Sorry that my instructions are not more detailed, I was teaching myself at the same time!
You will need:
- Cover that fits your phone (I got mine for $1 on ebay)
- Studs (I got mine for $2 on ebay)
- Super glue
- Sandpaper or an emery board
- Needle nosed pliers (no pictured)
Rough up the back of your case with the sandpaper. I used an emery board because it's basically the same thing. Roughing up the back makes sure that the glue sticks properly.
Take the needle nosed pliers and squeeze the stud prongs to the inside.
Put super glue on the edge of the stud and on the cover. Stick down. Continue doing so until all covered.
Leave to dry for a day, then put it on your phone. DONE!
Be careful of superglue! It's really annoying to get off your fingertips!
You can also plan the studs in a design beforehand. I didn't worry because I wanted the whole cover to be studded.
