making kraft paper book covers for some books -- that i deeply love, but don't have the most becoming countenances -- has been on my to-do list forever. like -- five, six years? this is something i talked about doing back in high school and (surprise!) never got around to. but so far, 2014 has been a year of starting long-put-off projects, and i'm on a roll!
to make the covers, i just used a big ol' roll of brown craft paper + double-sided tape from hobby lobby, and fit covers to them -- the way we used to do for our books in elementary school. anyone remember that? it wasn't too terribly scientific, a kind of let's-hack-our-way-through-this kind of project. my specialty.
oh, and i love them.
