Just in time for Back to School - Wrappily's double-sided wrapping paper gives your standard book cover a makeover. This quick tutorial video shows you how to turn your textbooks into functional works of art with a front pocket to save your notes and loose papers.
Materials:- 1 Sheet of Double-Sided Wrapping Paper (we chose this Tropical Gift Wrap from Jana Lam)
1. Measure & Cut Paper
For our standard textbook size, we cut the sheet in half which left enough for 2 inches on the top and bottom of the book. You should have 2 sheets of paper stacked on top of each other.
2. Crease & Fold Edges
Place open book in the center of the paper and use a pen to mark the book edges on the top, bottom, and sides. Remove the book then crease the edges at the book line. Fold the bottom edge & flip over.
3. Create Pocket
Decide where you'd like your pocket and create a crease on only the top sheet of paper. Cut the top sheet 1-2 inches above the crease. Fold at the crease line and tape down. At this stage, you should be able to see one pattern on the bottom sheet and a different pattern on the top pocket sheet. Flip over.
4. Fold Edges & Attach to Book
With pocket side facing downward, fold top & sides. Place book on top of the paper and slide book ends into the newly created side pockets. You may need to use tape to seal the pockets. Re-crease the edges and add any finishing touches.
