22 Back to School: Geometric Paper Bag Textbook Covers

Remember back in the day when you used paper bags to cover all your textbooks?! I have fond memories of doodle-fests in homeroom, mostly with the latest boy crush, and dorky name compatibility games. But then the perfectionist in me always longed for pretty cover designs.

Boy how I wish I had my silhouette back then because then the sky truly is the limit:

My favorite part was probably choosing fun scripty fonts to use on the spines:

3 John Legend’s “All of Me” Inspired Desktop Backgrounds

I’m pretty sure you all heard the glorious lyrics from the song “All of Me” belted from extremely talented John Legend. If not go take a listen. I promise you’ll want to sing those sweet words to your significant other on the top of your lungs. And then you may just have to write a sappy love letter placed on the bed then throw in a rose petal trail to the bed. What can I say the lyrics are just so infectious!

That’s why I’ve created a set of these FREE “All of Me” desktop backgrounds. As a daily reminder to be happy and simply love.
