Custom Nintendo DS Lite Skin





Introduction: Custom Nintendo DS Lite Skin

This i'ble will teach you how to make a cool looking skin for your white nintendo ds lite.

Step 1: Supplies

Cost- Low, if you have everything already
Difficulty- relatively easy

1. a White nintendo DS- $140-200
2. scotch packing tape, regular tape, or magic tape- $1-7
3. markers- $1-10
4. scissors- $5

Step 2: Cut the Skin

Before we begin I want to say that I do not want to be held responsible for any damage or anything else that happens during this Instructable.

OK! To put the skin on you must cut the tape to match the places you are putting the skin. Whether it be the inside, outside, back or everywhere. Then lay it on a clean surface whereit will be easy to pull off without ripping or damaging the tape.

Step 3: Coloring the Skin

I highly recommend that you color the skin when it is on the clean surface to avoid getting marker on your DS. But the choice is yours. Color it however you like, and send me picks of the finished product. I would love to see them!

Step 4: Put the Skin On

Just put the colored skin onto your DS and walla! The DS skin is finished!

I think it would have looked better if you had used stencils; it's kind of obvious you freehanded it (which isn't a bad thing unless it's obvious). Otherwise, it looks great!

the reason it was so crude was my exacto wasnt very sharp, but i did free hand it,but my lines were straight

thanks it took me a while.had to try like 3 times to get it right.used the ups shipping sticker,cut it out on an old plastic tub (with plenty of light of course) took a blue sharpie to it, put it on there.came out great.if you got any q's reply to this comment. and thankyou again.

cool thanks for posting this.

Agh! I'm having so much trouble with air bubbles!
