Did I leave you guys hanging waiting for the Tutorial?! It is Tutorial Tuesday so I thought I’d go ahead and let you guys in on the secret!
It is the easiest tutorial ever! It is just SUPER time consuming. So POP in your favorite movie and go to work!
I’ve needed a new laptop for a while. The screen on my old one broke so we turned it into a desktop. Then just recently it started doing some crazy things so I knew it was time… I loved the new laptop on it’s own. I had never seen one like it before. I could have left it as is, but I LOVE personalizing things. Enter the Washi Tape Makeover!
You can see the post where I got the inspiration here: Meet Red
Washi Tape (choose a few different colors…I went with 12 because that’s how many I had)
Scissors (don’t use your nice scissors, the tape will get them extra gunky)
This project is seriously so simple.
I started with the bigger keys and just measured them with my ruler and cut the tape to size.
I moved on to the smaller keys (not the smallest, I left those without)
I realized that one key is about the width of the tip of my finger, so I didn’t even have to use a ruler anymore. I basically unrolled some tape, put my finger up to it and cut. If it was too big I trimmed it down a tiny bit and that’s it!
I did that 66 times.
I bet you could totally use the same method of using your tip of your finger as a guide! It’ll make life easier and help speed the process.
The great thing about Washi Tape is that it’s like masking tape, so you can peel it off and re-stick it!
Please note: After using it a few times, you might notice the tips coming up a little bit. Simply rubbing them down with your finger gets them to re-stick. For me, I used the edge of a paint brush in preparation for my next step.
I wanted a more permanent solution so I took a VERRRYY fine tipped paint brush and put a minuscule…I mean MINUSCULE amount of modpodge on the edges (not the sides…just the edge).
IF you try that please be extremely careful, you could ruin your computer, so proceed at your own risk!!!!
And there you have it! A unique computer nobody else has!
