Project Instructions

Step 1
Lay the neon poster board in front of you horizontally, fold the bottom edge up at 2" and crease to form a pocket.

Step 2
Lay your book in the center of the poster board with the bottom edge of your book against the bottom folded crease of poster board.

Step 3
With the bottom of the book still against the bottom crease, draw a line horizontally across the poster board at 2" above the top of the book. Cut off the excess poster board above the line.

Step 4
Now fold down the top of the poster board at 2" and crease.

Step 5
Lay your book so that the top and bottom of the book are on the creased edges.

Step 6
Fold the left side of the poster board over at 2½" and tuck the front book cover into this folded pocket

Step 7
Open the book so that the back cover of the book is flat against the poster board, add about 2½" to the right-hand side and cut off the excess poster board.

Step 8
Fold the remaining 2½" over the back cover of the book. Tuck the back book cover into this pocket.

Step 9
Use the neon quick letters, black vinyl letters and neon eye catchers to decorate the front and binding of the book cover.
