Magnetic Book Cover

Hello everyone!
It's so beautiful outside, but every now and then there is a rainy day and because I don't want to study for the last exams this year, I like to spend my time with making some projects. 

For this one I got the idea of making my own magnetic book cover based on the magnetic cover I have at home. 
I didn't know how I would make it, so I just experimented a bit. And I encountered on some problems ... more about them in the tutorial.. :)

You'll need:
- cardboard (thick and strong)
- glue
- magnet
- piece of metal

Start with the box where you'll put the book or a diary. Make it a bit bigger than the book.

Continue with making the cover. Use a stronger cardboard.
For the shape of it is optional. It can be without the little semicircle. Just make sure that you'll have the place to insert the magnet.

Then just decorate as you wish. I used some napkins, which was a bad idea because of the soft cardboard (...), but it still turned out good.

And there you have it! I'm pretty sure that you can make some smaller covers, maybe suitable for a bag? :)

Let me know what you think :) 

And enjoy the sunny days outside! :)
