Give Your Computer a Designer Upgrade!

Use your laptop as an accessory by covering it in your favorite Fablon print! This easy craft idea helps you transform the plain exterior of your computer by giving it a beautiful designer upgrade. Choose between animal prints and patchworks, pretty stencil designs and lovely damasks.

The only tools you need are your laptop, the sticky back plastic of your choice and a craft knife! We suggest first positioning the liner the way you would like it to appear on your computer. Some designs like the Scrapbook liner we used for this project have varying patterns throughout, so we placed it to display certain details we liked such as the quote “Look on the Bright Side of Life”.

Once you’ve properly applied your sticky back plastic, the next step is to carefully trace the outline of your laptop with a craft knife. Pay special attention to the round corners, as it is easy to slip and make a mistake. Once you’ve finished the front of your computer, flip it around to install the back.

We chose two different designs because we liked the vintage look of pairing two complimentary patterns together; however one roll of sticky back plastic can easily cover both the front and back!
