I Washi-Taped WHAT...???

Until now, all of my washi tape projects have been for Lucy.  (See HERE and HERE if you missed them.)

So I decided it was about time Mama got to have a little fun, too!

Yep, that's right.  I washi-fied my iPad!

Remember I mentioned (maybe a few times?) that I was pretty excited about my new (3rd generation) iPad!?
Well, I also got the nifty smart cover that goes with it .... it automatically wakes and sleeps your iPad just by opening and closing the cover!  Very cool.

I chose the light gray version.
I picked a couple cute washi tapes from my collection, and smoothed it onto the raised sections of the cover.

Then, because I wanted nice and clean lines along the edges, I got out my nifty exacto knife ....
And sliced (VERY CAREFULLY) around the raised sections of the cover.  (This was surprisingly simple to do -- the washi cuts away so easily.)
I love that this simple addition makes my iPad - MY iPad.  
And if I want to, I can simply peel the washi tape off (SUPER EASY) anytime .... and change colors!!!  I can coordinate with the holidays, the seasons, or whatever I want!
....Not to mention, the washi tape will help protect the cover, as well -- because, who am I kidding?  Little Miss Lucy uses the iPad more than I do! :)~
