DIY Book Wrap

By • 7 months ago with 2 replies already

The school year is in full swing, you’ve received the required reading, and now you’ve been tasked with covering the books. Fear not! With custom wrapping_paper, your books will be well-protected and vibrantly beautiful all year long.

Want to give it a try? Here’s what you’ll need:


Here’s how you do it:

1. Place the open textbook on the back side of the wrapping paper and cut around it creating a rectangle larger than the book. There should be roughly 3 inches of excess paper on all sides. Fold the top and bottom edges toward the book and create a slight crease on each side.

2. Next, remove the book and fold the top and bottom edges inward on the crease you made earlier.

3. Place the open book in the center of the folded paper so that there is an equal amount of excess paper on each side. Fold each side of excess paper around its respective cover and create creases on each side. Then, remove the book and firmly fold on the crease lines inward, creating a pocket for the cover.

4. Slip the front and back covers into each folded pock and you’re done! How cute are those llamas!?

So, whether you’re protecting your textbooks or styling your home with matching, literary décor, this simple project will put the ole brown paper bag to shame.
