Our Kin Parents Producer Robert Mahar put his twist on the standard brown bag covers using colorful wrapping paper and designing it to have pockets to organize paperwork. Customize your own in any color and pattern! Source! The wrapping paper we used for this project can be found here: http://search.paper-source.com/index/_/N-/Ntt-solid%20roll%20wrap Find more of Robert's work at http://www.maharcraft.tumblr.com. Materials: 3 colors of wrapping paper a textbook to cover tape scissors ruler/yardstick Instructions: 1. Unroll a length of wrapping paper and lay your closed textbook on top. Position the book 2" above the end of the paper and using a yardstick score a horizontal line. Then measure 2" above the book, draw a horizontal line and cut the paper. Crease the paper along the top of the book and then use the yardstick again to score a horizontal line. Set this piece of paper aside. 2. Unroll a second length of a different color wrapping paper and lay your closed textbook on top. Position the book 2" above the end of the paper and using a yardstick score a horizontal line. Then measure a few inches shorter than the top of the book, draw a line and cut. Set this second piece of paper aside. 3. Unroll a third length of a third color wrapping paper and lay your closed textbook on top. Position the book 2" above the end of the paper and using a yardstick score a horizontal line. Then measure a few inches shorter than the height of the second piece of paper you just finished cutting, draw a line and cut. 4. Fold the bottom of each piece of paper up along the score lines. Fold the top of the first (largest) piece of paper down along the score line. 5. Stack the bottom folds of all three pieces together, with the largest piece on the inside and the smallest on the outside. 6. Lay the spine of the book in the center of the paper and then wrap the paper over the cover, creasing along the vertical edge of the front and back covers. Pull the paper back from the book and fold along the crease lines. 7. Slip the front cover of the book into the front folded channel. Repeat, slipping the back cover into the back folded channel. 8. Secure the cover with decorative tape.
