Last month I posted about a stack of books I covered over the weekend and one of you posted this suggestion in the comments section:
Love your book covers Liz, but can’t you think of something schmanzy so that we can do this, and still know what book is inside? Maybe using that adoooorable new font?
I wasn’t planning on covering any more books but Sine’s comment intrigued me so I set out to create labels. I had so much fun that I ended up creating three different labeling systems.
(1) print book titles directly on paper (letter or legal size) before covering
Super quick and easy but only works if you’re covering small books.
Print book titles on twill and sew onto bookcover. Not as quick, but I had a lot of fun, especially with the thread colors. Couldn’t decide on white or red so I made one of each.
(3) print your own custom labels
This one is my favorite because of the possibilities it offers.skinny label
Like the labels? Here’s a full sheet of ‘em.
This free download includes a high resolution pdf file of red labels in three different sizes. I also included a png version of the printable labels so you can easily recolor and customize to fit your project needs.
Download and get to labeling! Enjoy!
