Favorite characters REALLY stand out in this presentation! Use Shaper Paper™ to make a 3-D book report cover that captures a favorite story!
What character especially intrigued you in a book you read recently? How could you represent that animal or person in 3-D to craft a report that is sure to stand out? Here is how the lion pictured took shape!
Start with a blank book as an armature, or cut your report covers from recycled cardboard. Measure the book to figure out how much Crayola Shaper Paper™ you need to cover the spine and covers, plus a little to overlap inside. Measure and mark the Shaper Paper in one piece.

Brush one side of the Shaper Paper with a small amount of water. Wrap the book with the wet side of the Shaper Paper facing the cover. Neatly tuck the edges inside and press down. Cut snips to go around corners.

Carefully tear or cut more Shaper Paper to form the 3-D character and decorative elements for your book cover. Shaper Paper sticks to itself and holds its shape when wet, so be creative with your design! What is your character’s personality? Where does yo
Press the 3-D pieces into place on the cover, dampening them slightly as needed. Give your cover sparkles with Crayola Glitter Glue. Air-dry the sparkles.
You’re ready to fill the book’s pages with details about the character, plot, setting, and other elements of the story. What can you show and say to encourage your classmates to read the book and enjoy it as much as you did?
