Our bookpacks have arrived and it’s time to start covering books. When my kids first started school I loved the idea of finding the fun contact designs and covering their books. Now, 5 years later if you say the word contact around me I may scream. Contact is not my friend. Despite trying so hard I rarely was able to cover a book without lumps and bubbles appearing. I really persevered during their prep and grade 1 years. But when stationary shopping for grade 2 I came across some book slip covers at Officeworks. These back to school, book covering sanity savers have made covering books so much easier these past few years.
This year I am using Book Covers from 4myEarth. They come in a great range of designs and sizes, for exercise books, A4 books and scrapbooks. What I love about the 4myEarth range of book covers are the boys designs. A lot of covers I have seen have a range for just the young boys, but Mr nearly 10 thinks his covers are sooo cool… there are skulls, zombies (creepy but 10-year-old think it’s cool) music and more.
and there are also pretty designs for the girls
Alternative to using contact
I’ve also covered some books with wrapping paper, found a card that Miss 9 had received. She loves pigs! We cut the design off the front of the card and taped it on using Washi Tape.
Here’s our slip covers from 4myEarth
I also saw these plastic covered exercise books at Big W, they would save fighting with contact as well.
Disclosure: I was given a few book covers from 4myEarth for consideration for a blog post, I was not paid to write the post and all opinions are my own.
