Thanks Erica from Smock for sharing their DIY book covering with us.

This DIY is an adorable way to spruce up your school books (or
any other books, for that matter) and it’s super easy!

Ingredients

  • Your favorite Smock gift wrap (our picks from the left: Pageant, Plume, Jade, April, and Beetle)
  • A ruler
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • A pen or pencil

To start, you’ll need to measure and cut your sheet of gift wrap
to fit your book. We recommend giving a 3-4-inch margin on either
side of the (open) book, and then a 1-2-inch margin above and
below the book.

After you’ve cut your gift wrap, fold up the top and bottom of the
sheet. Be sure that the folds are not shorter than the book. Use
a few pieces of tape in the middle to keep everything straight.

Next, with the book inside, fold the paper in half, making sure
the sides are even. Then, take the top part of the gift wrap and
fold it neatly under the book’s cover. Repeat this step on the
bottom.

After you’ve made even folds, carefully slip onto the book,
securing the book’s cover into the little pockets that the folds
create. Secure with tape.

Tada! We are loving the end result. And since our gift wrap is
double-sided, you can alternate patterns – perfect for prettying
up a set of books to display at home!

Love Smock as much as we do visit them here.

Have a happy weekend.
