A Happy Keyboard for Happy People

Earlier today, I dropped a box of crayons on my keyboard, and I tweeted my cry of frustration. Then I was asked if it looked anything like minifanfan’s. No, but I wish!

p.s. How cute are these stickers?

    Are you kidding me?!? I love this so much! I wonder if it’s hard to see through though? Or does it give you a bit of a headache to see all that design in your peripheral vision after a while?

    That just made my day! Very tempting! It reminds me of the new Alexander Girard book by Todd Oldman! I wonder if you got tired of it (or the tape faded after a while) whether the keys would end up being sticky.

    wow! That keyboard is awesome. My old beat up macbook pro deserves a little dress-up time I think.

    So cute! You definitely need to know how to type from memory with these keys, though :-)

    Amazing! I wonder if it is washi tape? Seems like a much more fun alternative to a keyboard protector. (because I only use a keyboard protector to keep my hair dye from turning the keys purple)

    Love this keyboard. I read somewhere the lady that did it used washi tape to get the different patterns.

    It’s washi tape, just cut into squares! Brilliant. I have almost all of those patterns, maybe I’ll give it a whirl :)

    This is by far the cutest accessory I’ve seen for a laptop, ever. I’d much rather be typing away on those cute little buttons, then put a skin on my actual laptop. You can’t enjoy the skin when the screen is open, so this is a way better alternative!

    do you think this wonderful idea would work with a black keyboard that has white letters on the keys?

    How exactly does this work? Do you just cut it out and then stick it on the keyboard and how come you still see the letters? So great and have been looking for this since ages *_____* BEAUTIFUL <3
