Starting with laptop keys - they aren't hard to get hold of. Ask around computer repair shops; most keep hold of old laptops for spare parts or appropriate disposal. Alternatively old chunky laptop keys are fairly commonplace at car boot sales.

Take care to glue well on the edges of the notepad cover. Trim off excess
