So, while wondering through Wal-Mart looking for the perfect bag/carrying pouch / etc. to put my sensor charger, SenSerter, extra sensors, batteries, etc for my every-day bag, I found myself in the craft department looking for solutions there. I thought maybe, since people would need to carry beads in small pouches, maybe they would have some magical case there.
While I didn’t find the magical case I was looking for there, I did see something else that caught my eye…
You got it. Duct Tape. That led to the idea of “hey! I could cut it out and make it into a skin for my meter! Yey fashion!”
After carefully cutting a piece of paper towel to the outline of the blue area ( I chose paper towel because it’s not too thick and can somewhat be seen through. Rice paper probably would have been better, but I didn’t have any on-hand.) Then, I laid it on the Duck Tape, taped down the edges, and cut it out. The hard part was cutting out the spots for the buttons. They look a little rough around the edges, but hey, it works.
Then I thought, Hey! I could take an extra littleÂ pieceÂ and cover over my shell! So I did, and carefully cut around the edges there. Yey! Now it looks cute too! I didn’t put it all the way up to the connector port just so that I would know for certain that it would have no connection issues. I worried about the little green light after I plugged it in to my new sensor spot, but I actually could still see it blinking, so yey again! Maybe for the future though, I’ll hole-punch a little hole just to be sure though.
Kinda looks like a lady bug, doesn’t it???
Not bad for a little creativity and $1.88, huh? I’m sure the tape on the sensor will come off as it gets older and wet, but that’s okay… I still have more than a half-sheet left! Hahahaha!
