DIY | MARBLE MAC

I have always loved all things marble, so when I saw this amazing idea on Henriette Amlie Kalbekken’s blog Design Lykke I knew I had to make it my next DIY project!

– A Macbook

HOW TO:

Step one // Place the contact paper over your Macbook and roughly cut it to the same size.

Step two // Remove the protective seal from the back of the contact paper and slowly stick it to your Macbook (using a ruler to flatten the contact paper as you go helps to prevent air bubbles).

Step three // Use a sharp craft knife to cut around the edges of your Macbook.

Step four // Cut around the Apple logo and peel it off (if you have trouble seeing the edges of the logo you can lift your laptop lid slightly so the light shines through.

  1. Hi there!
    I’m obsessed with the marble cover, however wouldn’t it be messy getting the contact paper off of the macbook if you decide to sell it or want to have a different cover in future?
    I just don’t want it to be damaged.

    • Hey Sarah!

      I haven’t tried to remove my cover so I am unsure of how easily it will come off, however it is just contact paper (similar to what you would cover your books with at primary school) so I wouldn’t think it could cause any damage! xx
