These are fast, easy, and can be unique to your style. Show your personality through the Duck Tape® you choose to decorate your school books this year.
1. Cut apart grocery bag by cutting down the middle of the side seam and then carefully cutting it at the bottom of the side so that it will open and lay flat.
2. Using your text book, trace around your book, laying the spine in the center of the paper sack, tracing on the side with any print, as it will be your inner part of the cover that no one will see. Trace one cover, then turn it up on its spine, trace that, and then lay it the other way and trace that cover. Then add on about 8” more to both ends to create the folded pocket.
3. Cut out the outside edges.
4. Fold along inner lines to create the pockets and to define the spine of the cover.
5. Before doing any adhering of the tape, put the book in and make sure it all lays together and fits ok. Adjust any folds as needed.
6. Now begin by adding tape to create the inside pockets.
7. Next, start adding layers to create your design. We did one that is strips of different tapes and another that was an alternating angled stripe.
8. When your pattern is done, go back and add tape to the edges and finish it off so that it has a nice clean look and so your edges are stronger than just the paper sack.
9. Finally, take your oil based marker and add your name, your class name, or any additional designs or info to your cover.
Now you are all set with your own set of textbook covers that are perfectly you!
