Dust jacket - recycle kid's art

I just thought of a new use for some of the HUGE volume of art that kids tend to produce.  Book dust jackets!  I just cut this painting to the exact height of the book and made sure it was long enough to wrap around and fold on the inside of the front and back covers (to see how to do these cotton bud [q-tip] paintings click here).  Easy peasy.

Once I have done more of these I will print out some nifty little labels with the book titles and authors on them.


  1. This is a great Idea :)

    1. Thanks! I have a bunch more art rejects saved up to more now. They will brighten up my office no end.
