Back-to-School Bliss: Wonderboom Junction's Guide to Creative Book Wrapping, Lunchbox Tips & Delicious Food Ideas!

In this blog, we'll delve into the art of book wrapping with vibrant A4 Pre-Cut Assorted Colour Covers, and we've got some lunchbox ideas to make your school year deliciously exciting!

Book Wrapping Tips:

Step 1: Cut the Paper to Size Lay your book against the A4 Pre-Cut Assorted Colour Covers to determine the wrapping size, leaving 4 cm of excess paper. Pro tip: Pre-cut all book cover paper for efficiency.

Step 2: Lift and Fit Lift one half of the book to an angle, making closure easy. Fit the cover with an extra set of hands or use pegs for temporary securing.

Step 3: Trim Excess Paper Cut away excess paper to customise the fit. V-shape the corners and trim near the spine.

Step 4: Tape it Up Cut your Sellotape and use it to stick the cover to the book. Pro tip: Use plastic countertops for tape convenience.

Creative Touches for Personalized Books:

The Minimalist: Start with a timeless, neutral design using brown or black paper for an iconic minimal look. Less is more, and simplicity reigns supreme.

The Perfectionist: Organise your workbooks by colour with colour tags on the spine for efficient retrieval. A colour-coded system for the perfectionist in you!

The Modernist: Add a pop of colour with a streamlined look. Glue white paper to the spine and use patterned paper for the front and back cover. Modern meets vibrant!
