I'm putting out a call to all you crafty, resourceful people who reside here on the Budget Board. I need to find something that will work as a durable book cover for my DS's school books. What hasn't held up so far.... -school fundraiser paper book covers (like a heavy-weight wrapping paper with a waxy coating - kind of like some book jackets), -paper bags, -freezer paper. We can't use book socks (the stretchy, fabric covers) per teacher's instructions. I'm at my wit's end trying to find something that will survive being crammed into an overloaded desk & book sack. I'm about to resort to lining a paper bag or paper book cover with duct tape to see if that will last more than a couple of weeks without being torn to shreds. Any ideas???
