Luckily for Christmas I got some gorgeous marble contact paper, so I traced it to fit my cover.
I peeled the corner so that one corner was stuck down, then smoothed air bubbles out as I went until the whole thing was stuck.
I used an Exacto knife to cut out the holes and pushed the edges in to fold them over.
(still a few air bubbles at this point)
Ta da! Even Bob approves :)
This makes me only slightly less angry that I'm back in class.
Have a beautiful day! :)
