DIY Decoupage Laptop Cover!

As most of you probably know, I’m really into photography and hope to open my own business one day. Because of this, I recently got a new MacBook Pro so that I could better edit my pictures! For as long as I can remember, I’ve been personalizing and scrapbooking just about everything I own (phone case, binders for school, inside of my lockers/dorm room/bedroom, etc.) so it’s no surprise that I wanted my Mac to be just as personalized too!Image

Materials:

  • Magazines (two or three)
  • Scissors
  • Glue (I really like using Elmer’s Rubber Cement)
  • Clear cover (I got mine in a bundle deal on Amazon)
  • Your favorite color of construction paper (I used two pieces for my 13inch)

Instead of just buying something monogramed online, I wanted to make something truly unique to me, so this is what I came up with! To start, I ordered a clear cover (both top and bottom) along with a black slip on case and gray keyboard slip from Amazon.  I wanted the outside cover to be clear so that I could just scrapbook everything onto a mint piece of construction paper and use the clear cover to hold it in place.  Nothing is actually glued onto my Mac, just being held with the case! To make the design I came up with, I just browsed through two or three magazines to cut out pictures of the images, quotes, or words I liked. Once I thought I had enough, I just placed and repositioned everything until I was happy with what it looked like! After this, I just glued everything onto the mint construction paper and let it dry.

I’ve been using this new cover for about three weeks now and every time someone sees it I get a compliment on it! I really do love how it turned out, and it was sooooooo easy to make! I’m really excited to take it back to school with me this fall because I always love looking at what other people on campus do with their Macs to personalize them and I finally have one of my own! I strongly suggest trying this because it was so easy and not expensive at all!

If you have any questions, just let me know and I’ll try to help as much as I can! I would love to see how your’s looks if you try it too, so show me please!

Thanks for reading!
