How to Cover Books in 2 Minutes

It’s almost school time! For sure, most of you are done buying school supplies for your kids including their school books and notebooks. Are you done covering them? If not, I’ll be sharing with you an easy way to cover them efficiently.

 

I lived during the Jurassic era, when my mom used to buy rolls of plastic covers and adhesive tapes to cover my books when I was a school girl. After which, spending HOURS to cover everything. YES, we do cover our books and notebooks. We wanted to make it presentable and preserve it for the entire school year (or even as reference for future use). Without book cover, we can call them brochures. LOL.

 

It was a little while back that I’ve found out that there are so-called contact book covers or adhesive book covers. I don’t know when this was invented but I just recently discovered about it…like a month ago. 🙂 So now, to those who haven’t heard it YET, allow me to share with you how cool it is.

 

 

So, here it is. I have bought it from National Bookstore for 120 pesos for 10 pcs. Not actually bad for a quite magic. LOL. The one I bought is a plain plastic adhesive cover, but if you can see at the right photo, there are a lot of designs that you can choose from (embossed).

 

Let’s get started with this very quick tutorial.

Get a piece of contact book cover. Lay down the book and see how much adhesive book cover you have to cut.

Detach the center part of the adhesive cover and stick it in the middle of the book as shown above. Then peel a small portion of the non-adhesive side in front and glide it across.

DO NOT remove the entire non-adhesive part right away, otherwise, it may stick wrongly or with bubbles. Push the non-adhesive part by two hands or even one hand. Check out this short clip I did:

 

Cut the corners slanted/triangle and fold it inside. Flip the book and do the same thing on the other side. And it’s done!

Now you can cover school books in no time! Really cool, isn’t it? 🙂

Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes by Maya Kitchen

Baking is a fun way to spend valuable time and bond with your kids. It’s an opportunity to share time, create delicious desserts and build memories with your little ones.

I’m so glad that the Maya Kitchen has collaborated with Mommy Bloggers Philippines. We got the chance to be part of mom and kid baking workshop at the Maya Kitchen Culinary Arts Center. My son and I had a very fun afternoon last Saturday. We both learned a lot from the workshop and I’m one of the proud moms because Aki made very delicious cupcakes at a young age of 5.

Now, I’ll be sharing with you the Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes that Aki baked. I hope you’ll enjoy baking together with your kids, most especially that bonding time with them is becoming more scarce because some of us are working moms and some are busy with other household tasks.

On Demand Professional Delivery Service with ETOBEE

As a mom, TIRED is just a word and not a hindrance to do everything that would make your children happy. You would do everything to provide their needs and wants. Literally, you want them to experience the things you were not able to experience when you were a kid. Agree?

 

I currently have a full-time job which pretty much supports our family “needs”. I also have some sidelines like retailing clothes online as additional income which supports our “wants”.

 

And since I sell online, I would need a reliable courier to deliver my product to my customers. Sometimes, it happens that customers get mad or upset if the products were not delivered on time especially if they need it urgently. I’ve been switching to different couriers who offer cheap delivery and at the same time very reliable when it comes to service.

 

Good thing, I was introduced to ETOBEE last Blogapalooza Business-to-Bloggers’ event. I had fun with their booth/games. I even won a mug as a simple souvenir!

Aleron Promises Experiential Choral Concert in Makati and Manila

ALERON is mounting an experiential concert entitled “Under the Olive Tree”, to be held in two venues at the end of the month. The concert will focus on themes of war and peace, and will showcase works by both international and local composers.

The choir will stage the production on May 28th at the 2nd Floor Glorietta 5 merchant space, and on May 29th at the newly constructed Basilica de San Ignacio on Arzobispo St. in Intramuros. The shows will be at 8:00 PM and will be led by a guest conductor, Dr. Eudenice Palaruan, an esteemed choral pedagogue. These performances will be his last in the country before moving to Singapore to pursue a new teaching position.

The concert will include commentaries on the pieces, and these aim to provoke the minds of the audience. These include short play features that elaborate on the messages of the music. ALERON intends to reach a wider audience and to bring a new appreciation for choral music through this different concert presentation. For ticket inquiries and reservations, contact productions@aleronchoir.com or +639199132006.
