I cut this iPhone mini out of a Best Buy ad. I looked up the specs online and one of the most recent versions is 6.5 inches long by a little over 3 inches wide. The picture is a bit bigger and would make the phone 7.5 inches in 1:12 scale, but I think once it is sitting out in a mini scene no one will notice but me. I used a couple of layers of cardstock to make the phone wide enough and glued all of the pieces together.
The Best Buy ad also had a picture of an iPhone case so I cut that out and added it to the back. I added a bit of clear nail polish to make both sides shiny as well.
In the middle of all of this mini making I got extremely frustrated with my new ruler. It's a really nice sturdy metal one, but for some odd reason the manufacturer put a strip of cork down the middle on the back of the ruler. I guess it was just another way to raise the price a bit and to make it look fancier, but it is completely impractical. A ruler has to lie flat and straight to make accurate measurements.
So I took a razor blade and sliced the cork off of the back. Instead of throwing it away I decided to make a mini coarkboard for my cottage. I used skinny sticks and my Easy Cutter to cut the 45 degree angles and then glued everything together. I think later on I may paint the border a pretty white :)
