INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Cut paper bag open, lay flat and cut about 3 inches wider than book you are covering. Use a medium brush to saturate the paper with water. Make water colors by mixing 2 parts water with 1 part paint. Use a medium brush to paint one book cover in Margarita and Desert Turquoise. Apply both colors loosely allowing the colors to blend.
  2. Transfer provided "Science" pattern and use a small brush to paint in Black.
  3. Repeat step 1 and 2, this time using Royal Fuchsia, Purple Pizzazz and the "History" pattern.
  4. Repeat step 1 and 2, this time using Desert Turquoise, Purple Pizzazz and the "Math" pattern. Let dry. Wrap around school books tightly to eliminate any wrinkles.
