What you will need in order to Protecting Your Planner Journal Covers
Adhesive Clear Laminate (I used Duck brand)
Get out your project.
Take out your adhesive clear laminate
Cut out a piece of laminate with approximately one inch extra all of the way around the project.
We are using the adhesive clear laminate for Protecting Your Planner Journal Covers. You will want to fold this adhesive clear laminate in half and crease it.
To try to keep the laminate from rolling up, roll it up one way then flip and roll it the other way. This will help straighten the sheet out. I don’t always do this but it can be helpful.
Pull the backing from the laminate.
Peel the backing to the half way mark of your laminate.
Place the back of your front cover project down on the adhesive laminate.
Press down on the laminate pushing all of the bubbles out toward the open edges.
Turn your project over so that the front cover is facing you now.
Pull the rest of the backing off of the laminate.
This is what it will look like after you take off the backing while you are Protecting Your Planner Journal Covers.
Fold over the laminate so that it is on the side of the front. Slowly rub the laminate toward the outer edge so that your rub out all of the bubbles.
Be sire to rub the edges of all of the areas ensuring proper adhesion.
Take out your scissors and trim the cover. You can do it two different ways: trim closely to the edge or trim so that there is a small amount of overhang to ensure complete sealing.
Your project is complete!! The left is not covered and the right has been covered. Be sure to repeat the above steps for the back cover of your planner journal.
