The DIY Cute Tape Laptop Makeover

We've extolled the DIY virtues of decorative masking tape a few times here on Apartment Therapy, including this colorful keyboard makeover. Jamielyn of DIY blog, I Heart Nap Time, shared another project over at the Windows Experience Blog, using colorful tape for a laptop makeover...

After cleaning the laptop's top case with a Q-tip and a litte bit of rubbing alcohol, it's a fairly easy process of lining up the tape and cutting to size, only limited by your imagination and selection of tape colors and patterns:

You can find patterned tape (also known as washi tape) at, Target, Michaels, and other craft stores. It comes in all sorts of colors, patterns, and sizes. It costs about $2 a roll.

All I did was roll the tape across the top of my lap top, pushing it down as I went and then cut it off at the edge. I continued my way down with different colors and patterns to give my computer a fun and unique look. This tape will not leave a sticky residue on your computer, which is great for someone like me who changes her mind quite often.
