How To Upcycle Old Encyclopedia Books
1. Locate an old Encyclopedia Set
If you own one Great! If not you can buy an Encyclopedia Set to upcycle you on Facebook Market for around $20. Some are listed for FREE too! You will be able to make several book sets with multiple quotes from one set.
Pro Tip: A neutral old Encyclopedia Set will be less visible at the sides.
2. Gather Your Supplies
- Old Encyclopedia Set
- Roll of white kraft paper
- 36″ x 48″ Self Healing Cutting Mat
- Ruler with Lip Edge, 4 x 36-Inch
- Rotary Cutter
- 11×17 Paper Ream
3. Measure Book Cover
Measure the width and length of the book you have and a few inches all around. An average book that is 7 1/2W x 10 1/4” L x 1 1/2” H would need a rectangular about 13” W x 30” L to cover the book. If you are covering five books you will need five sheets cut off the roll that measures 13” W x 30” L.
Pro Tip: Select the thinnest books of the set so they can be wrapped easier.
You can are print the book cover sheets at office depot or on an 11″ x 17″ printer (if you have one).
4. Crease the edges
Lay the book in the middle of the craft paper and crease along the edges. Depending on your age your mom may have used this method to cover your books in grammar school back in the day.
5. Wrap The Books
After your edges are creased you will be able to see the imprint. Fold the two sides back lengthwise.
Next, wrap the book as shown and fold under the ends so they wrap around the book. Tape the ends inside to keep the cover in place.
6. Add Your Quote Layer
Once all of your books are wrapped with the craft paper you will need to cover them with the 11×17 sheet of paper that has your saying printed exactly in the middle of the page.
Make the height of your letters/ words 1/4” shorter than the height of your books. For a height of 1 1/2” H make your words 1 1/4” high. A laser printer is best for crisp letters but if you only have access to an inkjet printer that will work as well.
After you place the book in the center of the printed page you will crease around it in the same way you did the craft paper. Since the printed paper is 11×17” use double stick tape and regular tape after to secure the printed layer down. You will repeat this process for all books in your quote series.
