When book covering goes bad….

Written by Tracey Blake

It’s not advisable to try and cover your children’s new homework books (decorated by the kids to show their teachers what they love) with sticky-back plastic on a school morning. In hindsight, this is obvious, but it didn’t stop me from attempting it this morning. I have to admit, I thought it’d be easy, a bit like wrapping a present. I wasn’t banking on blunt scissors (I tried three different pairs and it still looked like I’d cut the plastic with a butter knife), wrestling with what is essentially a giant piece of sticky tape (so it kept sticking together where I didn’t want it to) and waging war against some very persistent air bubbles.

Halfway through I very nearly stopped to find a YouTube video – this is what I should have watched, this young Aussie girl has it sorted!
