If you’re in a pinch and don’t want to buy a new book, you can cover it with a paper bag. The bag’s lightweight, flat shape is easy to apply to a book cover. Once flattened, a paper bag can be used to decorate it. Here’s how: Place the book on the folded edge of the paper, then wrap it around the left end of the inside cover. When the paper bag is long enough, the book should be just about the right width. Remove the book and fold the paper bag until it forms a clean crease. Slide the book cover inside of the fold until it fits snugly against the crease.
How to flatten a book with a paper bag
There are many ways to flatten a book. But this technique may be most effective if you are working on a small book. The bag can be used for a wide variety of books. First, you need to make sure the book is approximately the same size as the bag. Then, fold one edge up and around the bottom of the bag, leaving about two inches on either side. Then, position the book in the center of the bag, and fold it down.
Next, fold the bag so that the top and bottom folds are equal. Now, fold the left side of the paper bag over the book. Cut off any excess paper, if necessary. After completing these steps, you can remove the bag from the book. If you don’t want to use the entire bag, you can reuse the bag. You can also reuse the paper bag cover. However, make sure to cut off the excess paper so that it will fit inside the book.

This tutorial will teach you how to create a paper bag book cover. The technique is simple and can be used for any book size. First, you need to cut the bottom and one side of the paper bag, allowing about two to three inches of extra length on each side. Next, lay the paper bag flat on a flat surface. Position the book centered in the middle of the bag. Fold the bag so that it covers the book completely, but not the book itself.
Using a ruler, measure the width and length of the paper. You do not need to be super accurate. However, you do want to leave about two inches on the top and bottom edges and about three inches on each side. This will allow the spine of the book to open and close comfortably. You may also want to use a craft knife or scissors to cut the excess paper. Then, you can decorate the book cover with stickers, rubber stamps, or collages.

First, you’ll need a textbook to make your book cover. Then, fold the bag so that the center portion of the bag is near the spine of your book. Leave two to three inches of wiggle room on each side, so that the paper cover can be folded over your book and still lie flat. You can use tape to secure the bag, but make sure that the pieces don’t touch each other or the book itself.
Place your book in the center of the bag, and mark the top and bottom with a pencil. Then, fold the bag lengthwise, keeping a small excess on the sides. Be sure to crease the edges lightly, but don’t be too exact. If you’re using scissors, leave about two inches at the top and bottom and three inches on each side for the book’s spine to open and close easily.
