I just got my new book cover today. It is so cool! It fits my book perfectly with a pretty heart on it, and I could have any text I wanted on my cover. It also has that plastic coating like you see on books in the store. I ordered it from I also ordered the matching notebook. My friends are going to be jealous. I've never seen this before, but it is so cool!

DUCT TAPE!!!!!!!!!!!! covered textbook, my school dosen't allow fabric book covers so we all cover ours in paper bags - then a bunch us cover them in fun colored and printed dust tape! You can also just doodle on them or put mag. clippings on, it's a blast...and something you made, so it's fun to show them off.

I put a bandana on mine.

One of the guys in my class kept getting a conduct because he didn't have his book covered, so after xmas break, he started doing monthly wrapping paper book covers. (snowflakes for jan., hearts for feb., etc).

I'm so glad GL posted this article because I'm short one book cover! Time to get creative!! I think I'll try the map one or the comics one.

I like just a plain brown paper bag. You can spend the whole year doodling on it.

Something that is really cute is to use a Starbucks bag, and do it so that the handles are pointing up like you can carry it

by anirtaK on 8/21/2012 7:33:36 PM


I know it has nothing to do with book covers, but I have straight, brown hair that's a little wavy because I don't brush well(oops) but I was wondering if there was any way to make it look like Miley Cyrus's(before it was cut). My hair isn't naturally straight, so eventually it'll become wavy, but I really like her hair. Thanks!

I would feel like I would be too distracted if I put pics on there, but these are some creative ideas!!

by fallsb-ball on 8/21/2012 5:26:51 PM


im going into junior high this year and was wondering how to be super orginized. last year i didnt get the grades i wanted. i still got honours but only in the 80%'s but that not what im used to. How would i always get good on tests and what are some good study methods and how would i plan out my time so that i still can take a nap, have supper, have a bit of free time and get all my homework done. thanks so much and sorry for all the question

I usually cut out stuff from mags (like my old GL's that ive read about 5x). This year I had gone to Warped Tour and gotten band stickers so Im covering one of my comp books in that. I always cover them in packing tape to make sure they stay on.

Okay, so the daily poll had a choice, it was something like
I'd change my rep from wallflower to stylista or something... What do you mean by a walllflower??? I heard there's a movie called the Perks of being a Wallflower, but I don't actually get what 'wallflower' means! x( Just curious to know, plz answer back!


Hey chica! A Wallflower is a girl who is super shy- she's rooted to the wall, like a flower! xoxo

Mod Mod Mod How often do you update quizzes? Thanks!


Hey girl! It depends- sometimes we update them once or twice a week, but if the GL office is super busy, we might have a quiz up for longer! xoxo

I use wrapping paper for most of my books or a brown paper bag since a lot of teachers don't want them with stretchy covers since it could ruin the books.

Yay! I got 1st comment!

I really want to get a bf this year. My friends say I'm too picky, but I've only been asked out once and we all agreed that the guy was a dweeb. He had bad hygenie too! I don't have a crush yet, but how can I be more outgoing with guys and find cute guys who will give me a chance and get to know me before ruling me out? The guys at my school are superficial, only care about how your face is, if you wear a lot of makeup and have big boobs! I don't have a great face, not allowed to wear much makeup, and am totally flat-chested but I'm super creative, get good grades, and act nice! Help me? Thanks GL!


Hey girl! Sounds like you're a catch, and you want guys to like you for your personality, so try to find guys who you like for their personality instead of finding "cute" guys.  Find one hat makes you laugh, treats you well, and like the same stuff you do. Don't rule out a guy just because he's a dweeb- he might be hilarious and know all of the words to your fave movie! xoxo

None of these ideas are very "me". I think I am still going to get them in-stores. But if these ideas work for other girls, hey why not?

by WinnieGirlie on 8/21/2012 2:07:39 PM


These are super cute ideas! Nice article Girls' Life!
