Some fads I jump on the moment they are announced. Like the iPhone. Others I resist and they may take me a bit of time to come around. A perfect example of this would be PopSockets. When I started seeing them everywhere I just didn’t get it. I didn’t feel like I needed an different way to hold my phone and I take about as many selfies as my 88-year-old grandma… so there’s that.
Anyway, I wound up with a free promotional PopSocket from a vendor so had no reason not to try it out. And no. This product has not changed my life, and I honestly can’t say why I keep it on my phone except for the reason that it’s now one more way to express my love of Harry Potter.
Like I said, it was a free promotion item, so it was branded with the company’s name. Nothing against that company, but since I’m a Harry Potter fan, I figured I’d change it up. (I recently just found out one of the selling points of a PopSocket is a chance to show off your style… so maybe I’m more into it than I originally gave it credit). To change it up, of course I used vinyl. One, it’s quick and easy, and two, when I’m tired of this design I can replace it with something else.
The whole project took less than 30 minutes. I probably spend the majority of time figuring out my design and creating it in Design Space, (Cricut’s design software). Check out the video below for my creation and application process. Any suggestions for what I should change it to next?
