Back to school DIY

In my efforts to score some brownie points with my six year old daughter, I set myself the task of covering all of her books before I give them to her as a surprise. To say she is excited to start grade 2 would be a major understatement. In fact, she has been bugging me for weeks about when her school stuff will be ready to be picked up and when she can go back to school.

I hit up Pinterest for a bit of inspo... I had no luck! Although I could find book covers and contact covered in fairies, donuts or butterflies, I couldn't find anything that was "Taleah". I searched for hours with no success so I decided to try my hand at making something.

Over the past few months Bec has been teaching me how to use Illustrator and Photoshop so I gave the book covers a red hot crack!

Boom Shuckalucka #nailedit! They turned out awesome! (even if I do say so myself).
T was stoked with her books and I scored epic brownie points! All in all a win win if you ask me.

Maybe we need to do a school range next year for our bigger Laners. We are thinking, book covers, contact, chair bags, lunch boxes, school bags...... Let us know your thoughts in the comments and what products you would like us to make.

Well here they are, in all their cuteness for our Lacey Lane Mammas to impress their little ladies. If you don't have a printer or just want a good quality print, you can get these bad boys printed at Office Works for around 88c. In this DIY I used 15mm glitter tape. InkyCo have a heap of cute glitter tapes for you to mix and match with these designs, check 'em out!
Enjoy. :)
