Modern mouse-pad

Rejuvenate your work space with this simple, easy-to-do update.

You’ll need

  • piece of cork or MDF (square, round or rectangle, whichever you prefer)
  • modge podge
  • paintbrush or decoupage brush
  • material
  • scissors
  • crafting board or flat surface

To make

  1. Measure carefully and cut the material to the size of the cork – aim for 1mm smaller on all sides.
  2. Stick your material down with a thin layer of modge podge and allow to dry completely.
  3. Once dry, fix any bubbles by lifting material away and dabbing a small amount of modge podge on with your brush and smoothing it out with your finger. Allow to dry completely.
  4. Repeat this process, ensuring that any bubbles or areas of material that are lifting are filled and smoothed down as you go along.

Tip: You can add a thin layer of foam before sticking down your fabric for smoother use.
