    Very cool. How did you make those great large book mock-ups?

    • To create the display …
      • Measure your window
      • Determine size and how many book covers will fit
      • Find book covers on author websites and online book stores
      • Right click and save pictures to your computer, create a Word doc., insert pictures (one per page) and resize
      • For this year’s nominees, add text box to each picture and insert annotation http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/yalsa/teenreading/teenstopten/teenstopten.cfm
      • Print pictures, mount on construction paper, laminate
      • For previous winners’ windows, laminate several sheets of construction paper (I used white)
      • Die cut numbers for award years
      • For Stars 1-10 … In Word using shape tool, draw star, add text box to star and type number, copy and paste for additional stars and retype number … print and laminate stars
      • Assemble on windows
      • Butcher paper cut the size of window may be used instead of mounting each cover individually. For the 2011 nominees, I cut and laminated 3 inch wide strips of black butcher paper and taped around the windows as a border.
