Let’s Make a Book Cover
We’ve been talking a lot recently about going back to school in style. And while you may have a new wardrobe, backpack, and all of the best folder designs – we bet those school books are looking a little plain. But don’t worry, this DIY book cover will be sure to add that last touch of style you’re looking for.
Let’s start out easy – the first thing you need to do is gather your supplies. Just check everything off this list and then you’re good to go.
- Paper Buckle bag (you know, that one you got while back-to-school shopping 😉)
- A pencil
- A book
Carefully disassemble the bag and place your book on top of the brown side.
Take your scissors and cut the bag down so there are about 2 to 4 inches of excess on each side of the open book.
Use your pencil to mark where the edge of the book is. These will become your fold lines for the next step.
Fold the bag so it’s the same height as the book.
Slip the book cover into one end of the bag, then fold under. Repeat with the back cover – you’re almost done!
All you have to do now is close the book and, of course, head back to school in style!
