Your fave books

 

What you’ll do:

1.    Sketch an outline of where you want your outer layer (the biggest boxes) to be placed on your wall.

2.    Place Command strips on the back of each box.

3.    Make sure the corners of the boxes are touching (so they look like diamonds)

4.    Press down firmly so the boxes stick to your wall.

5.    Once you have your outer layer, repeat the same steps for the medium sized boxes and then the smaller sized boxes until it looks like the picture above.

6.    You’ll be reading in style in no time!

What you’ll need:

Heart template

Scrapbook paper

Glue dots

Green pipe cleaners

Ribbon

 

What you’ll do:

1.    Print out the template and cut out the pieces.

2.    For each rose, cut out four hearts from scrapbook paper.

3.    Turn one of the hearts upside down to resemble one of the center petals of a rosebud, and use a glue dot to stick the top of a pipe cleaner stem in place.

4.    Place a second heart on top of the first, matching up all the edges and pressing down firmly to adhere it to the glue dot.

5.    Use your fingertips to curl the tips of the hearts.

6.    Fold each of the remaining two hearts in half vertically.

7.    Fold back the rounded sides of the hearts and then fold down the tips.

What you’ll need:

Paper bag

Scissors

Adhesive gift tag stickers

Decorative tape

 

What you’ll do:

1.    Roughly measure the cover size you need and trim the paper bag accordingly, leaving a few inches around each side to fold over.

2.    Fold down the sides to create little sleeves for the front and back of the book to slide into.

3.    Cover the book. Slide the front and back of the book into the sleeves you’ve created, then add a little tape to make sure it’s secure.

4.    Decorate and get creative with cute stickers.
