Seeing the lovely ideas for books recently, I was wondering how you ladies seal the front cover. Do you use decoupage stuff or another sealant? I would like to make some board books for T.J. but I don't want him to be able to rip everything off so quickly.

you could try mod podge. But if your lo is anything like mine it won't last long.

I worry about Henry tearing the cover off too. I just used glue dots, so I don't know how long the books that I made will last. After a few days we decided to put them up and he can only look at them with us.

Another spin is make cardstock pages, get them laminated, and then bind it with a ring so it's like a flip book. I've done that and they last ages.
