Washi Tape Keyboard

I had some spare time today, so decided to spruce up my laptop keyboard with some Washi tape!

cover

Here’s how it’s done….

Well, it started out like this….I have a keyboard cover so my keys don’t get all nasty.

But really…how boring is that?!

And dusty. It also needed to be washed. 

So, I rinsed it and hung it to dry….I hand wash all my dishes and my dishwasher is simply a drying rack…

Then I chose my tape! I picked 4 different ones and alternated. I measured out how big the keys were, cut squares in that size, and then cut them in half so I could cover half the key and still see the letters.

Now…FYI….I’ve always wanted my keyboard to say “Avada Kedavra” instead of “Backspace”…..so now was my chance!!!

I have a label printer since I shop a lot on my clothing business….find me at http://www.shopwithchloe.com 🙂 So, I measured out my backspace key and printed my own sticker!

It doesn’t blend in as well as I’d ideally like, but I still love it!

And BAM. Finished up the Washi tape letter keys.

At this point, I decided my space bar was rather lacking…so I picked another tape and helped it out a bit 😀

So pretty all together!

And, of course, the cover needs to go back on because (1) it will get very dirty if I don’t and (2) the Washi tape will come off as I type if it’s not covered!

So. Much. Better, yo.

And THEN I noticed the water spots on my keyboard cover. And decided I didn’t care. 

Happy Washi Tape Fun!
