Back to School with Pink Einstein: DIY Spiral Covers


My first DIY of the school year are these super easy yet super cute spiral covers. I wanted to do a DIY that required supplies that most people would have around their house. Most of the DIY videos I see on YouTube require things I have to go out and buy and I don't have that kind of time so I used the things I found in my craft bin to make this simple DIY. Obviously I don't have to show you how to make these covers because it's really easy but sometimes you need a little inspiration to get your creativity flowing (lol that was cheesy). You will also see through out the post that my spiral looks backwards but it's really not, it's just a left handed spiral.

The Supplies you will need are:
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Sharpie/pen
  • Washi Tape
  • Notebook
  • Glue/ Mod Podge
  • Index Card
  • Scissors
 Step One: Lay your scrapbook paper under the cover pretty side down and trace around the cover.
 Step Two: Cut out the scrapbook paper and lay it over the cover to make sure it's the right size.
 Step Three: Using Mod Podge, cover the cover of the spiral. My Mod Podge is at my other house right now so I used school glue which works too. If you have Mod Podge I would cover the top of the scrapbook paper as well.
 Step Four: Write the subject of the spiral or your name on a note card.
Step Five: Using washi tape, tape the index card to the front cover.

I also made this cover for my Chemistry spiral where I put the washi tape around the edges of the spiral. And yes, I do realize chemistry is spelled wrong I realized that once I had taken the pictures but I guess that's what happens when you do DIYs at 12 am! lol 

And your done! If you tryout this DIY take a picture and post it to Instagram with the hashtag #B2SWithPE.


Luv Ya! ❤️
