As a student, you already know that one of the best places—if not the best place—to make the biggest difference for animals is at your school. peta2 makes it pretty easy for you, too, with resources like the “Veggie Burger Project” and our “#DissectionKills” campaign. But guess what?
We’re about to make activism even easier, and all you need is one of your school textbooks!
Show your classmates how much you love animals with a DIY book cover! They’re super-easy to make, and you can customize them however you want by drawing cute images and including your favorite animal rights message—oh, and don’t forget peta2 stickers!
Want to get started? Here’s what you need:
Not sure what the heck to do? Here’s a step-by-step guide:
1. Open your textbook and lay it, cover side down, on a sheet of craft paper, then trace around it with a pencil. Cut the paper so that there are approximately 2 extra inches of paper above and below your pencil markings and 4 extra inches of paper on the left and right sides.
2. Using the pencil markings, fold the top and bottom of the paper to fit the size of the textbook.
3. Fold the right and left portions of the paper to fit the front and back covers of the textbook.
4. Slide the textbook’s front and back covers into the ends of the paper, and your textbook is covered!
5. Get creative!
Once you make your own DIY book cover, snap a pic of it at school and submit it for 2,000 Street Team points!
