Back your books with tesa tape
Love your books 💜
Who remembers backing their books at school? What a fantastic way to take loving care of your stuff and put some old paper to good use. Protect timeless classics, conceal those guilty pleasure reads, or create personalised notebooks to be adored.
With some pretty nifty tapes from tesa, and this handy step-by-step guide below, why not enjoy custom book covers once more?
- Fix Anything Eco Tape
- Quick Tape & Desk Dispenser
- Stick Anything Double-Sided Tape
- Backing paper of your choice
- Your book (of course!)
Prepare a piece of backing paper so that it is around 1.5” longer than your open book in all directions. Create a spine down the middle using the Fix Anything Eco Tape.
Fold the backing paper 1.5” inwards from the top and bottom to fit the height of the book. Then cut into either side of the folded spine, top and bottom, to create four notches in total.
To secure your book inside the cover, apply the Stick Anything Double-Sided Tape along the spine of the book and place your book down the middle of your backing paper.
Fold the corners of the backing paper and use the Quick Tape & Desk Dispenser to secure all the folded edges to the book.
And there you have it!
In just a few quick and easy steps, you’ve got a beautifully backed book. Time to get scribbling!
