If you are looking to add some life to your computer keypad then this project by the 'Making It Lovely' blog is for you. All you need is some Japanese washi-tape. Washi is made out of wood paper, so it's a bit thicker and tougher than ordinary paper. You can purchase some washi tape by the foot from the 'Le Box Boutique'on Etsy. It offers a variety of different colors and shapes.
The first thing that needs to be done before dressing up your keys is to carefully wash your keypad with some rubbing alcohol in order to remove any oil or dirt. To save on time, it is also a good idea to cut out a template of your keys on a piece of cardboard, as it will make it easier for measurements. Lastly, once you have cut your tape into size, you snip off a small piece from the corner to avoid it from overlapping.
This project by the 'Making It Lovely' blog is easy to do and will require some patience, but the end result is totally worth it.
