Laptop


Put the fun in functional by decorating your laptop with Expressions Magic™ Tape* and Expressions Washi Tape*. This is a great project for teens, teachers or anyone who is bored with a plain old laptop.


*May damage some substrates upon removal.

  • Clean and dry the top of your laptop so the tape sticks well.


  • Select complementary base colors and bolder colors and patterns to create an interesting blend.


  • Snip your selected Expressions Washi Tape or Expressions Magic™ Tape into rectangles between about half an inch to two inches in length. You can snip as you go.


  • Avoiding any working parts of the computer, apply the tape in a way that makes an abstract-like pattern. Let some of the laptop show through.


  • EXPERT TIP: Use transparent Expressions Magic™ Tape over other patterns for a cool effect.
