Paper Bag Book Cover

Here’s an easy, fast, and fun way to reuse paper bags and help preserve your favorite books. You can add your own creative touches to make this book cover one-of-a-kind.

  1. Cut the bottom out of a paper bag and lay it flat.
  2. Measure the book against the paper, allowing extra on all four sides for folding. (2-3 inches is usually plenty on each side.)
  3. Trim and fold. Fold along the bottom first, then the sides.
  4. Now is a good time to decorate the cover.
  5. Put the cover on the book by sliding the front & back covers into the folded pockets. If needed, you can tape the edges to hold secure.

Don’t forget to label the book with its TITLE & AUTHOR.
Voila! You have created a book cover masterpiece.
