DIY Monogrammed Phone Background

I have a pink OtterBox that has treated me very well and saved me MANY times from shattering a front or back of my iPhone. While Lilly, Kate Spade, Tory Burch and Pantone make great super attractive phone covers, I am a tried-and-true OtterBox fan!

Since it's rather boring, I try to spice it up as much as I can with backgrounds! One of my friends urged me to download the new update for 3Initials app! BOY-OH-BOY is it cute!

You can change the size, color, background, type and number of colors for all kinds of different monograms! Last Sunday, my friends were ooh-ing and ahh-ing over my background so I let them make their own:

This was what they were able to come up with! As you can see, you can change the size, orientation and background for all of them!
I tweeted this photo over the weekend and y'all were very inquisitive as to where to make the background and now you know! I was referring to the 17 text messages Friday night that I had received after falling asleep at 8pm watching the "Hot Donuts" episode of Duck Dynasty. I woke up at 11pm and didn't know if it was daytime or nighttime I was so disoriented. All my friends were wondering where I was and if I was coming out! Instead of y'all noticing that, you saw my fun 3Initals background!

This is my current phone background and reminds me very much of my yellow seersucker Carolina Cup dress--it even had pink embroidery!

Be sure to check out the 3Initials application in the App Store on your iPhone!

cool idea! the $1.99 app is a lot less than a whole new phone case!

What a cute app. I love this idea. And I am a big Otterbox fan, too! I don't see the point in a pretty case if it cannot protect a major investment like an expensive iPhone, so glad I am not alone in that!

For the background, can you change it to other patterns than stripes/polkadots. Ex: chevron, anchors, and others
