I was a very lucky girl this Christmas, I think Santa knows me better than I do. Some of the presents I didn’t even know I wanted until I got them and now I’m addicted. One of those was my brand new, crisp white Ipad2, Aww blessed creation! I am something as unconventional as an un-technological tech freak. I LOVE all the new gadgets, but I am really too impatient to learn them properly or take full advantage of their capabilities. The iPad though is totally intuitive and so cool looking, and even better: you can accessorize it! How perfect?!
There are so many cool cases out there, but for now I decided to make my own!
You need an object you want to make a case for (in my case Ipad, duh), different colored duck tape, drawer liners in plastic, and spray paint if you want to make a logo or pattern on it after.
You will also need a utility knife to cut the tape, scissors doesn't work as well.
Instructions after the jump...
First, measure the drawer liner so you have a bit room on either end. The cover can't be too tight, then you will struggle getting your item in and out.
Cover the ends and center with the color of your choice. You don't want anyone to see the gray when your item is in your cover, so try to fold the tape over covering as much as possible of the "inside". When you choose that side of the drawer liner should be the inside, choose then least sticky one. The one that's supposed to be down towards the drawer is often sticky and you don't want that on the inside, it would make it very hard for you to get your gadget out.
Tape it together with clear tape, making sure that gadget can slide in and out with no effort.
Then you start the fun part, wrapping duck tape around making your pattern. I made sure all my tape pieces ended at the same place in the back making it a nice clean line.
And there you go, your HOT new cover, and guess what? It's totally water repellent! If you want to make a pattern use painters tape or stencils and spray paint.
Let me know how it goes!!
