Week 2 Covered Books


Stack of Books

You will find a link to the printable directions at the bottom of the page.

Here’s what to do:
1. Choose your patterned paper and book. The paper should have about 2” on each side and 3” on top and bottom of the book. I had to add an additional strip of patterned paper to make it wide enough for my book.

2. Fold down the top and bottom extra paper so that the main portion of the paper is about ¼” taller than the book. Fold the sides of the paper so that the main portion of the paper is about ¼” wider than the book.

3. Slip the front cover of the book into the folds on the side. Slip the back cover of the book into the back folded paper. The paper should be taught when you shut the book.

5. Close the book and do as many books as you like. Stack the books.
