Happy Friday! Hannah here for a quick tip: >>Stamp your School Book Covers<< July is almost done and before you know it it will be time for back-to-school. Lots of stores have already stocked up on back-to-school items. Unbelievable! Here's a quick idea to spruce up the old-fashioned way of doing book covers: brown paper bags. It's an oldie but a goodie! And let's face it, it'll be Mom who will end up covering the books and not the kids! ;D
I've used our stamp kits from our NEWCopper Willow & Holiday Collections and some black ink to make a brown paper cover look chic and awesome. Check out the 2 complete Collections at JoAnn Stores! Here's a closer look at the stamp Kits:
Even though the theme of the stamp kits are themed for fall and the holiday season there are a lot of cool stamps that can be used for any occasion. Of course you could use color ink but the designs are so cool that even if you only have black stamp ink at home you can achieve a really cool book cover without a lot of effort.
1. Start with your brown paper book covers.
2. Stamp away leaving ample time to dry. Check out how cool the border stamps came out!
3. Don't forget to stamp the spine for easy book recognition! (Writing done with a silver metallic pen)
