It’s always tough for kids to head back to school after a long and relaxing summer break.

These school book covers would be a great way to keep the memories of summer alive when the homework starts to pile up and assignments are due.

Fill them with your favourite memories and people and remember the fun of summer all term through.

Step 1: Select your photos from Instagram or your digital/scanned holiday snaps. To fill an A4 page you will need about 24 photos.

Step 2: Using Photoshop or even Microsoft Word, collate your photos onto an A4 page and print your sheet.

Step 3: Place a strip of double sided tape down the inside front edge of your school book.

Step 4: Place your printed sheet of photos on to the tape and then fold under the cover and stick together like you would when wrapping a present.
