Making a Book Cover – How to Make a Book Cover Out of Paper

Book covers become soiled in handling and especially school books.
Various methods are applied for making a temporary cover that will protect the book cover.
A paper cover can be quickly made by using a piece of paper larger than both covers on the book when they are open.

Fold the paper on the long dotted line, as shown in Fig. 1.
When the folds are made the paper should then be just as wide as the book cover is high.
The ends are then folded on the short dotted lines, which will make it appear as shown in Fig. 2.
The paper thus folded is placed on the book cover as shown in Fig. 3. —Contributed by C. E. McKinney, Jr., Newark, N. J.
