My fiance went to toss the trash and found a box with a computer *no monitor* keyboard and mouse.  He has no use for the keyboard and mouse, so I adopted them.  I know the usual make jewelry or magnets out of the keys, or a purse...but any other ideas?  I tried googling ideas and tried looking here in craftster, but nothing.  Thanks a million!!!


 Huh Huh Huh

I guess this is another one of those obvious uses, but if you do scrapbooking or altered journals, the keyboard buttons are great to label things. Or you could use them on a photo frame with the same idea

Check out this website for ideas.


You can make bookmarks with the circuit sheet inside the keyboards.  Cut to size and laminate.  I plan on making some and I'll post it here when I finish.

I did a somewhat predictable thing with an old computer mouse, made it into a cat toy. It was one of those really old types that have the rolly ball mechanism instead of a laser sensor. I gutted the inside as much as I could without damaging the pieces that hold the ball in place. Then I filled the empty space with catnip. So when it's on the ground in its normal position and the cats swat it to make it roll around, the ball catches little bits of catnip to dispense on the floor. It gets a bit messy but my cats went CRAZY for it until they banished it to the depths of some unknown dark corner in my room.

As for the keyboard, as everyone else said, you can do a lot of fun things with the keys. It'd be neat to use them as an original way to spell out your name or address numbers on your mailbox. I think the best thing would be turn them all into magnets though. Then try to get more so that you can have a magnetic poetry type thing on the fridge.
Good luck!
