First, cut an apple in half to use as a stamper. Emily dipped the apple stamper in some red paint and then stamped the design on the paper.
Next, cut a leaf shape stamp from a potato. Your child can add green leaves to the apples they already stamped.
Using a paint brush, fill in any spots with a little more paint. Emily was so pleased with how her book cover was starting to look! Allow the paint to dry completely. Now it's time to cover the book!
With the apple-printed side down, fold the bottom edge of the bag over about 3 inches.
Lay your book to be covered on top of the bag and mark the top of it with a pencil.
Using your pencil mark as a guide, fold the top edge to make a sleeve for the book cover.
Insert the front cover of the book into the sleeve. Repeat with the back cover. You may need to trim your bag a bit, depending on the size of the book.
