• Paper bag
  • Scissors
  • A book
  • Colored pencils, markers, or crayons
  • Decorations (glitter, stickers, pom poms)
  1. Cut apart the bag
    Make a cut down the side of the bag and then cut off the bottom of the bag so you have one big rectangle.
  2. Cover height
    Set book opened on the center of the paper bag. Fold up the the top edge of the paper bag and crease it then fold up the bottom edge of the paper bag and crease it. Depending on the size of your book you may need to trim the top and bottom edges of the paper bag.
  3. Cover length
    Trim the ends of the paper bag so they are about 3 to 4 inches longer than the edge of the book. Fold one of the cut edges of the paper bag over the cover of the book so it fits snuggly along the edge. With the book closed fold the other edge of the paper bag over the cover.
  4. Put it on
    Slide the book into the folded paper bag flaps.
  5. Decorate your new book cover!
