Gorgeous DIY Book Covers

Now that back-to-school season is on the horizon, it is time to think about all of the ways kids can make their upcoming school year as bright and fun as possible.  Covering text books with whimsical, charming, or even funny patterns can turn your kids’ backpacks into mini art galleries.  This kind of personalization can help older kids feel more connected to their school experience.

I found the above seamless, repeating house pattern on Shutterstock, and I instantly felt like my eyes could hang out in this colorful neighborhood for days!   Seamless patterns are perfect for book covers because you don’t have to worry about centering images –  it is like wallpaper for your books!

Mustaches, because they are all the rage right now:

Enjoy!
