My old mouse mat have seen better days. The edges were frayed, the colour faded and it was a plain boring mat to begin with. So I decided to make my own! Be the envy of your house guests and no one will ever suspect that this geometric mouse mat was so easy and cheap to create!
You will need;
– A plain, single colour mouse mat with a fabric top
-Metallic paint marker/fabric pen
-A4 piece of paper
1. Cut your piece of paper to the size of your mouse mat. Sketch out the shape you want the mat to be on the paper- this can be a regular shape or an irregular one like mine! Cut the paper to size and trace around the paper onto the mat with a soft pencil and cut out.
2. Looking much better than the original mouse mat already! Now we are going to add the lines. Essentially these are going to make it look like a cut, or faceted gemstone. Again these can match the outline or be slightly more irregular.
4. Now you just need to go over the pencil with the marker pen (I’m using a Uni Paint marker in gold). I found I needed to go over the lines a second time to get the lines as bold as I wanted.
5. And thats it! Enjoy 🙂
