In a few weeks you will be sending your kids off to start a new school year. If your kids have to cover their textbook, send them back in style and help the environment at the same time by re-using the shopping bags their back-to-school clothes come home in.
How to Make a TextBook Cover Using Popular Store Shopping Bags
There are many ways to cover a book. This is the way I do it.
- Paper Shopping Bag
- Scotch Tape
1. Cut the bag on one side and then unfold the bottom to flatten the bag.
2. Carefully remove the handles.
3. Determine where the logo will fall on the book. Each book size and bag will vary. Wrap the bag around the book to determine fit and size.
4. Once the bag is sized to the book. Close it to see the fit and run your fingers over the books edges to make creases. When you take the book off you will see the creases (book size) and you can then make the cuts. See next two photos.
