Tutorial: Duck Tape iPad RE-Cover
First, here is the "AFTER" photo:
Doesn't it look nice?
We thought the light coloured leather iPad cover was a good idea.
We were wrong.
Natural body oils stain the cover - and there is no way to clean it off and you cannot dye them.
Plus, the edges all separated ... I opened them up here so you could see what I mean - they didn't actually look like this all the time but I wanted some drama in these photos! :)
So what to do?
I always thought it was called duct tape, but there is a brand named Duck Tape. And that is what I found and I loved the colours, so that is what I used.
Basically, I tore off a piece of duct tape a bit longer than the width of the cover - so that I could fold it over the edges to the other side.
I forgot to take a photo of the first piece, but I did have to cut a tiny piece off each corner so that it overlapped at the back without sticking to itself.
Here is a photo of the second piece being added: I made sure to match the pattern on the duct tape and I overlapped the first piece a bit to accomplish that.
See how nicely it is covering up those stains?
Continue adding pieces and matching the pattern.
Here is a close up of the other end and manipulating the corners and the magnet piece:
And finally, the finished product!
