I have a question. My daughter which is a traveling Nurse is doing books for her niece and nephew. She buys a stuffed animal that relates to the state she is in. Any place she has gone the stuff animal will go with and they take pictures together and she puts these in the book. The animal will tell the story. In the back she has left pages for the kids to tell their story with the animal and where they have taken him. She has done a nice job with the book and I would like to preserve the cover. We design the outside cover before she venture to the next state. All pages are inclosed with sleeves but I need to reinforce the cover. What would you use to do that with? I'm worried that the kids when looking at the book the cover will get dirty or torn and even some of the wording may come off in time. Do you have any suggestions as to what I can do to help preserve the cover. Sorry this got lengthy. Thanks Kathy

Mod Podge is a great product for sealing projects. However, it might alter the look of the album, depending on the material the album is made of. If this book is going to be handled often and move around a lot, it might be a good idea to leave the cover pretty plain, so that it doesn't get ruined in all the shuffle. You could also create a cover for the album, like you would with school books, out of fabric or a similar protective material. Unfortunately, we do not have album covers in stores.
