Make your own seasonal bookstacks with just a few supplies and these book covers. Simply download, print, score and cover over paperback books!
I love seasonal bookstacks! They are so cute set on a table or tucked on a shelf. But buying them for every season can literally stack up and get pricey.
That is why I had the idea to create book covers to easily remove from books and switch out each season.
Not only are these cute for your own decor, but make sets to give as gifts too! Who wouldn’t love a set?
Have fun with these!

What you need
- Paperback books with a 1-inch thick binding and 5-inches wide. The books I am using are 5×7.
- 8 1/2×11 paper or cardstock
- Scissors or paper trimmer
- Glue stick, optional
You’ll need some paperback books that have about a 1-inch thick binding. The books I used have about 3/4-inch thick binding and it works find too.
Print the words you would like on regular paper or cardstock. I use just plain copy paper!
Remove the cover, back and binding off the book.
Next measure the length of your book on the cover and trim off the excess. I like to use a paper trimmer for a crisp cut. The one I use also has a scorer to score the paper too.
Once it’s cut to size, score the lines on the paper. I use the score attachment I have on my paper trimmer, or you can easily fold it over to create a score line.
Next I use a glue stick to on the top and bottom of the book and then add my new cover. You don’t have to use a glue stick, but I like to use a little to hold it in place.
Once I have my books covered I stack them together and wrap them with twine. You can use whatever accents you like such as ribbon, twine, bakers twine or you don’t need to use anything at all. You do you!
So quick and simple and an easy way to add touches of summer and Americana to your home!
