- Skill Level
Brown paper grocery bag
Your favorite color(s) of duct tape (Duck® brand duct tape comes in 20 colors!)
Embellishments of your choice (stick-on gems, stickers, permanent markers, paint, etc.)
Cut open the brown paper bag along one seam (from top to bottom) and then cut off the bottom (base) of the bag. Lay it out flat on your work surface.
Cover the paper bag book cover with your favorite color of duct tape.
· Be sure to pull strips long enough to cover the book from side to side or top to bottom, depending on which direction you choose.
· The tape should be long enough to wrap around the inside of the book to cover the paper bag flaps, making the cover look seamless.
· Be careful not to tape to the inside of the book, as this may cause damage when the cover is removed at the end of the school year.
Then, get creative! Use multiple colors to create unique patterns or add your favorite embellishments. It’s easy to write on duct tape, too!
*Create a covered notebook to match. Simply cover your notebook with the same pattern as your book cover.
Fold the paper up along the top and bottom of the book. Cut slits in the bag at the binding of the book to make it easy to fold.
