Custom Made "Skin" for Laptop using Dies!...

Hello dear Stamper Friends:
I posted this project at the French blog for Memory Box: "Un brin de Créativité" ...
This time it is not a card, it's a project very easy to make and in no time...

A custom skin for your laptop using dies and vinyl adhesive

I saw a similar idea using your Silhouette die cutting machine, but I thought I could do the same with the dies!
Furthermore,  not  everybody has  this machine, but almost everybody has dies...so I thought I should give it a try and it turned out to be so easy to make, fast and pretty! so what better than this! right?


Die cut the shape that you like in the Vinyl, mine is from the supplies for the "Silhouette" die cutting machine, which is a good quality one, but you can get them at other places too... they come in many different colors and you can customize the look for every season if you want...they are not permanent...they stick but you can peel them off without destroying the surface...


I did not use any transfer paper, (like they recommend) I just die cut directly the adhesive paper; place it VERY carefully on my surface and scrap it with the scrapper and Voilà!



the ends and the little curls were a tiny bit difficult to manipulate, but with patience...I did it so if I can you can too!
what was difficult was to take a good picture!!!...the shiny surface was too bright to photograph...I tried every room in my house...until I got this...



I did post a while ago another project that I did in my craft room...using decals and die cutting them with the "Silhouette machine". I decorated a piece of furniture.

Ok, I hope you give it a try...and make  a "Unique" skin laptop custom made just for you and by you!
hope you have a wonderful day and keep on crafting!

  3. Hi Bibiana,
    what a fab idea. Great use of wonderful dies.
    I once bought a skin for my i pod, and the price was quite high, so it would be lovely to do this it's a lot cheaper with the dies you may already have.
    Love your piece of furniture too.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
