DIY School Supplies-Easy & Inexpensive

My loves! So for those of you who didn’t know, last night I put up another Back-to-School video on my channel and it was all about DIYing cute stationery supplies for school. Normally, I would synch my blog and channel together but after 60 minutes of spin and another 60 minutes of zumba, I came home slightly paralyzed and extremely tired. Hence, I didn’t get a chance to prepare this blog post and I wanted to give it my all so I decided to wait until today instead of doing it halfway.

This no-sew pencil case is one of my personal faves because it’s so ridiculously easy to make it’s almost unbelievable. I think I will be going a bit overboard making these.

Material list: 

– 1 sheet of felt

– hot glue

– button

– needle/thread

diy1I don’t know about you but I LOVE pencils. There’s just something so lovely about a newly sharpened pencil. And something even more fabulous about having pretty glitter tips like these!

Washi tape binder clips are so easy and fun to make-you can tend to get carried away like i almost did. They look so pretty and will definitely help keep your stacks of paper more organized.

Spice up boring notebooks with ones with gorgeous gift paper like these! I honestly feel like gift paper has just evolved into such vibrant designs and there are just so many you can choose from to personalize your notebooks. The only thing with this DIY is that you have to be very careful not to get air bubbles when placing the gift paper on the books. For an even more unique touch, you can add washi tape to the spines of the books!

The earbud/headphone holder was my personal fave and I mean it’s not hard to figure out why! It’s made from an old clothespin with washi tape on the sides. Don’t believe me? Check the video above and you’ll fall in love just like I did. You can make a bunch and give them away to your friends!
