Pretty Book covers

If there are special books in your life that you would like to hold onto, but you're probably not going to read for a while, covering them is a great way to preserve their outer sleeve.  I picked some pretty wrapping paper that I had in my wrapping supplies.  


Just like wrapping text books with brown paper bags you want to fold in either side to equal the width of your books.  You want to lay your book on top and fold the sides in and insert the book end into the folded edge.


Here is a tutorial online if you would like more detailed instructions.


I covered six books so far, but I'm tempted to buy cuter paper and cover more books. 


I think these are going to look great in our new bookcases under our TV (more coming on that later.) 


Hope you're having a great week!
