So one of the marketing tools that authors have access to are cover flats--essentially, blank, empty book covers. I've been playing around with something useful to do with them for a while, and, well, 'tis the season... I made some Yuletide ornaments! I found this video about how to make a house ornament out of Christmas cards on Youtube:
It can work just as well with cover flats. I chose to make the heart (CLICK HERE to access the template I used), but you can probably make any shape that coordinates with your book so long as it's symmetrical. Check it out...
|Use the template to cut out heart shapes...|
|Score down the middle for easy folding...|
|Glue 'em together...|
I still have a few more flats. Instead of making 12 cut outs, I made 8 to represent the Wheel of the Year. I also added a brass bell to call the spirits of the season and a book milagro. Happy Crafting!
