make a statement
my psych tutor said we needed to hand in a notebook at the end of semester.

i wanted to make my book really stand out but didn't want to go for some typical coloured contact. so i spruced it up with a free avant postcard, a bit of paper, and clear contact

  • How to make a book cover. Book Cover Ideas - Step 1
    Step 1

    find a book that is in desperate need of a make-over

  • How to make a book cover. Book Cover Ideas - Step 2
    Step 2

    find some awesome postcard, picture, drawing, art, graphic, whatever floats your boat...

  • Step 3

    cover the postcard with clear contact

    why contact the image? after years of highschool and tertiary education, i've discovered that no book is safe in a student's bag. safest thing to do to save your precious book, is to water-safe it!

  • Step 4

    optional - grab a sheet of a contrasting colour and contact it too

  • How to make a book cover. Book Cover Ideas - Step 5
    Step 5

    stack them and glue them down (or use double-sided tape).

    add individual touches and make it yours.

    don't forget to put your name on it somewhere, just in case someone wants to steal it 'cause it's so awesome
