Having a cell phone case is almost a necessity and if you like a little of your personal style to show through, check out the CaseMaker Pro. It's a customizable iPhone case maker.

Well, sort of.

In the box, you'll get a plastic case that will fit around the iPhone 5 or iPhone 5S and the photo cropper. The photo cropper is heavy duty-made with 14 blades. Basically it's a hole puncher in the shape of the iPhone case.

It痴 a very simple concept. You can put anything into the photo cropper. A picture, newspaper clipping, post card, print outs -- whatever you're heart desires.

You place a picture in the photo cropper and then firmly push down, the stamp cuts the outline of an iPhone and a hole for the camera and flash. Bingo!

You can use any type of pictures -- friends, family, pets, sports teams, a company logo, a simple pattern, holiday themes. What about a Throwback Thursday case? The options really are endless.

Once you get your picture cut the way you want it, place it in the case and then the picture will appear on the back of your iPhone.

But here's the thing, you have to play around to get your picture cut just right. If you want something centered, or lined up it might be a good idea to crop a picture before printing. And you might want to print a few extra pictures.

It really takes practice, or you might get lucky and crop it perfectly the first time.

If you are a big scrap booker, you'll definitely like this.

The downside of the CaseMaker Pro, they only have one size and one model, and that's for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S.

The product is brand new, so no word on if they'll have any other case sizes coming out.

You can find the CaseMaker Pro for just under $60. Additional cases cost $20.
