Wrapping Paper Covered Books

When we found ourselves with leftover Rifle Paper Co wrap, we decided to put it on display instead of letting it hide in some drawer to collect dust (seriously? how could you not, it's too pretty!) We decided to wrap an old English poetry book we had laying around  and give it a face lift with the pretty paper. You can make it too, with this simple tutorial below :)

Directions

Step 1.) After you open your book, lay it out on the wrapping paper. Leave 2 inches of paper from the top and bottom of the book and 3 inches from the left and right.

Step 2.) Cut two rectangular slits for the spine--one for the top and one for the bottom.

Step 4.) Repeat on the other cover of the book.

That's all it takes to make a beautiful covered book! 

Enjoy!
