Arabella started Year 1 a few of weeks ago and was told she needed to cover her school diary. I asked her what she wanted to do with it, and she asked me to cover it for her. She gave me these parameters: it had to have colour, some sort of animal, and had to have her name on it – it gave me lots to work with!


This is the front cover above. The words are representative of who Arabella is and the great things about her. There are of course many more, but I didn’t have enough rub-on words!

This below is the back of her diary, and represents school.


I attached the paper over the diary cover, added some rub-on words, and used washi tape to cover the binding. My husband then did a smashing awesome job at covering the whole thing with contact.

P.S. she really liked it!
