E-book cover from a book

In this article, you will learn how to make ae-book cover (tablet)with your own hands from an old regular hardcover book.

Materials and tools:

  1. hardcover book in size so that your e-book can be removed;
  2. cardboard;
  3. scissors, stationery knife, ruler;
  4. glue;
  5. soft fabric, elastic.

Step 1

Take the books and use a clerical knife to remove the pages of the book by cutting through the paper in the folds on the inside of the cover — in this way, all pages should be removed immediately; note that the pages can be glued to the back of the book.

Step 2

Make the inside of the case. Cut out 2 rectangles from cardboard to match the size of the inner front and back covers of the book. Then cut out a strip of cardboard a little thinner than the back of the book.

Take a cloth, spread it out on a table and put one of the rectangles on it and at a distance of 0.5 cm from it a strip of cardboard (spine), outline the cutting lines with a margin of 1.5-2 cm and cut along the line. Then we glue the glue on the rectangle and the back and glue the fabric, wait until it dries, rotate and glue the remaining fabric along the edges, leave only a strip of fabric at the spine. Take the second rectangle of cardboard (it is pasted over separately) and repeat the process. The result is 2 parts of the inner cover: a rectangle and a rectangle with a spine.

Step 3

Take the cover of the book and glue the "rectangle with the spine" to the inside of it - this part of the cover will open. Apply glue to the "rectangle with the spine," attach to the cover of the book align. The spine was left with a strip of fabric, we also put glue on it and glue it to the back of the book cover.

Take the second rectangle - the back of the case, and an electronic book will be attached to it. On the reverse side of each corner, measure 2.5 cm, there will be a rubber band.Cut 4 pieces of gum, align them with an angle (curl through the marked points) and glue them on the reverse side with hot glue (or moment glue).
