However, there was one day I was in woodies and came across this roll of 'marble' style book cover. Yano, the stuff you stuck on your school books way back in the day? Yeh, apparently it's come a long way since then. I had a brainwave moment and decided to buy a roll in the hope of getting it to fit to my Macbook. It was €5 for the roll, quite the saving and I've since seen that you can pick this stuff up anywhere really.
I rolled out the marble cover, placed my Macbook on top and cut around until I was satisfied it would be a perfect fit. The hard part was trimming off the edges closer to the edges of the Macbook. I used a tiny tweezers to do this and to file it right down, but depending on how big your scissors is, you shouldn't need to use a tweezers, I just wanted it perfectly filed down.
I love this little DIY and I've had a few people ask me if this was an actual case and they're always really surprised to hear that it's just some book cover because even when you're looking at it in person it looks more like a decal than anything else. If you guys give this a go, let me know.
