School Supplies/Crafts

Monday, August 17, 2015

Happy Monday!  I want to share with you some fun school supply crafts Shelley and I made last week. We were inspired by a recent article in Romantic Homes Magazine.  Shelley says it makes school more fun using girly supplies.

We covered the glue labels with pretty craft paper.

We like pretty ribbons on paper clips

Shelley has tons of washi tape, so we covered her pencils.  Aren't they fun!

Shelley embellished a 7Gypsies crate with washi tape and craft paper.  The little file folders will help her organize her French II vocabulary notecards.

Cute printables for her binders...  We even downloaded spine labels and backs (you can see the yellow one for her fran├žais cahier above).

School supplies on her work table in the classroom

The tiny latte bowls were purchased on sale from Anthropologie for about $1.50 each.  They hold glue sticks, binder clips, paper clips, and push pins.

Until next time...

  6. I can't decide if I would never get any work done due to continually decorating supplies, or if I would be inspired to get something done!

  7. I agree, Shelley! Your supplies are much more fun with the personalized embellishments. Love the paper clip idea. I'm going to be a copy cat on that one. '-)
    Have a great year!

  8. So cute, I love the paperclips, just might have to borrow that idea. I'm always using paper clips to mark a recipe and with the little bit of ribbon on the top it will make it easier to find.

  9. Well i think it would help me look forward to my homework more...just pretty ideas.. I also love the paper clip darn cute. I'm not in school, but I might try a few for my craft room. maybe it'll help me be more creative!

  10. I think making school fun like this helps so much. I do the same with my boys. I try to add fun personalized binders, notebooks and supplies.
    Great ideas.
