Poki Nobeno all the way from Japan has created a one-of-a-kind project using barcode strips: A book cover!
Keep reading to find out how she made this so you can make one of your very own.
"I made a book jacket with the barcode strips. The poket diary which I am currently using is dull, so I decided to make it colorful!"
step 1: Cut a piece of white cardstock the same size as the poket diary cover as a base.
step 2: Tear off the barcode strips from the patterned papers you wish to use.
step 3: Line up the barcode strips in the order you like then glue them to the white cardstock cover.
step 4: Straight stitch across all the long edges of the barcode strips by machine.
step 5: Cut off the excess part of the strips, place the new cover in a protective sleeve, and wrap it around your book!
Poki concludes, "Sometimes the barcode strips are thrown away, but gathering them together makes cute and colorful works. I am thinking of making a photoframe with them next time!"
