I’m so glad you’re here.
You’re looking for the DIY Period Kit for School, right? The one that fits in a SECRET Compartment Notebook?
I’m here to show you exactly how to make it, but before I share it, you absolutely must know a few things…
Periods are scary for girls at school. I want to make sure that you moms and dads out there are ready to help your daughter SUCCEED with her period at school. Now that you are here, I want your DIY secret compartment notebook to look great. But I also want to make sure you’re ready to help your daughter survive her cycle in a comfortable, dignified way!
If you’re ready to:
- Pamper your daughter during her period
- Help your daughter be prepared for her period no matter what
- Avoid getting mid-day phone calls about “accidents” at school
- Carry a stylish notebook cover that “does it all”
And best of all help your daughter feel confident about her period, I've got your back!
Here is what you MUST know to get your daughter prepped for handling her period any day, anywhere but ESPECIALLY at school…
Why hide the pads? Plus my recommended feminine hygiene product!
So your daughter has started her period and she is freaked out about bringing pads or tampons to school. Are you afraid of getting a panicked phone call in the middle of the day from the school nurse? I hear ya and I’ve been there too!
Back when I was in college, I used to go clubbing in Los Angeles with my friends. We wanted to wear cute clothes but being on your monthly was always a concern back in the day.
One time my monthly started when I was at the club. I went to the car to get a pad from the glove box. After the night was over, we saw a guy looking in my car window and then jump back. When we got to the car, we figured out why: the glovebox had popped open and bright pink pads had fallen over the seats and floor! Not only did the pads protect me while I was dancing, they functioned as “anti-theft devices for my car”. Go pads!
Here’s the thing – you don’t want your daughter’s pads exploding out of her purse in the middle of class, right?
No need for bulky pink pads anymore, thank goodness! I recommend U by Kotex CleanWear® by U Pads which come in pretty, slim packages, are easier to conceal, and have better technology to allow you to wear whatever clothes you want when you're on your cycle.
Did you know that some schools won't allow girls to bring their purse or backpack into the restroom with them?
That’s why I created this DIY period kit with a secret compartment for discreetly hiding feminine products. Avoid the embarrassment of being caught unprepared when Aunt Flo calls. This can be used as a clutch style planner/purse – there's a spot for money or a gift card, pens, and a notebook plus a secret compartment on the back for holding pads. Your daughter can easily slide the secret compartment open, slip out a pad and put it in her pocket without anyone knowing!
This hidden compartment notebook cover is much easier to make than it looks – you only need very basic sewing skills. Can you a sew a *mostly* straight line?
You can totally make this secret compartment notebook cover!
This DIY planner style notebook cover is just part of the cycle survival kit we created for our back to school prep. We shopped at Walgreen's to get other personal care products to help “survive the cycle”, such as nail polish, Eos Lip Balm, and BiC Shaving Products. Some of these items will fit within the notebook cover we created but others will kept at home. Store them in a pretty basket or tote to make her feel special!
Items to place inside the notebook cover:
- Kotex CleanWear® by U
- Pens, Pencils
- Small Scissors
- Gift card or bank card
- Small pill box with aspirin or pain reliever
You'll need a few crafty supplies to create this project:
- Two sheets of 9×12 Felt
- Assorted fabric, two fat quarters' worth
- 12″ hook and loop tape
- Sewing Machine
- Jewelry Pliers
- Iron and Ironing Board
Find all of these supplies at your local craft store and at some big box retailers. If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can use fabric glue to glue the seams of this project together. Also consider borrowing a machine from someone you know or renting a sewing machine at your local sewing machine shop. Even my small town has a sewing machine shop – just google it for your area or ask around.
