The idea is simple, make a x mas globe covered in keyboard keys for that wonderful internet geek in your life. I got the idea for this last year after looking at someone else's page on keyboard message board pins and after making the ornaments for my friends as holiday gifts i felt it was only right to give back to this wonderful community and finally post this.
As with the rest of this, everything I say is just a recomendation based on the experience I have making these for the last 2 years. My first official recomendation is that you deviate from this as much as you like; pick all the ascetic choices your heart desires and experiment as much as you can. My only request is that if you do make your own, please, please take pictures and post them as comments.
Step 1: Get a Keyboard
Once you have you keyboards, flip em over, gut em, and rip out them precious keys (and maybe clean them if need be). The keys are really all you need; if your a pack-rat like me, keep the cords and LEDs for the first 5 or so and then just throw away everything but the keys (or recycle if you can of course). I suggest you put the keys of each keyboard in a different bags so its easier to keep the keys consistent on the balls.
