Brace Yourself. School is Coming.

It’s almost here.

Some of you already have your backpack filled and your first-day-of-school outfit picked out. And some of you are planning to hide under your bed and hope that August 16 just gives up and goes away.

Either way, it’s coming. You have a little over a week to get your stuff together, find your classrooms, and google your new teachers. (Does anyone else do that? No? Just me? Okay.)

If you’re like me, you have, in past years, spent the month before school in a crowded store hunting through disorganized shelves to find  the perfect prismatic penguin pencil pouch – only to discover they’re sold out. (Actually, it was a green unicorn trapper keeper, but that didn’t fit the alliteration thing I had going there.)

HAVE NO FEAR!

You can easily turn those boring, plain school supplies into unique pieces of usable art!  

Here are a few ideas to help you customize your school supplies!

  • Follow these WikiHow instructions to make a duct tape pencil case!
  • Visit Studio 300 to make some vinyl stickers for laptops, Chromebooks, phone cases, and more!  Bring in a few silhouette .jpg images on a USB drive.  There is a charge of $1 per foot of vinyl, but you can get a LOT of stickers in one foot!
