is this the right board for this? its a textbook cover made out of random pictures and contact paper. and its removable without damage to the book.


front


side


tutorial:
1. cut out the shape below along the outside lines. i used newspaper but any paper will work.

2. fill in the blue parts with pictures or anything you want. use glue stick to attach the pictures right to the pattern you cut out.
3.  cover the entire thing with clear contact paper and fold the flaps.  i used little metal things (cant remember what they are called) to keep my cover on the book

That's such an awesome way to make your book stand out and keep it protected.

since the teaser-text for this post was "If you doodle and cut out random things in magazines, then this book cover is for you", i decided to come and say to you one of my fav quotatins from Buffy: "I do doodle. You do doodle too!", said by Willow (obviously).

this is a great tute, thanks!!

This is awesome!
I constantly cut pretty pictures out of magazines, this looks like a great idea to actually use some of them!  Smiley
