The Self-Closing Wrapper has utilitarian roots. Designed as a temporary holding device for library conservation purposes, it is simple to make and can hold one or several items that are awaiting rebinding or are too fragile to stand alone on a library shelf. Outside its historical usage, this wrapper is remarkably versatile. Customise the self-closing wrapper to the size of a book you already own or use with many other types of structures.
In this easy-to-follow illustrated tutorial, you’ll learn how to make your own customised self-closing wrapper - the perfect way to personalise gifts this season.
