DIY School Supplies

Hello Everyone!

Yikes! Can you believe it? School is just right around the corner! Or maybe it has already started for some people.

DIY School Supplies

To help ease the transition  I have a school supplies inspired DIY! These are perfect for dorms, or even the office. Do you want to know the best part? They are all a little geeky 🙂 Which is perfect!

The video can be found here:

Let’s start with the first project: Floppy Disc Pencil Holder

Grab your floppy discs from the basement and smile a little when you think of all the people that told you to throw them away, you knew they would come in handy someday, lol. Well today is the day!

I used duck tape to cover up the label and make it look a little cuter, but you could use washi tape or paint them.

Then just hot glue the sides together and then to bottom. Now you have  a cute place to put all your pencils and pens

The next 2 are magnets. First is the Action Figure Magnets

Find some really awesome action figures from the Dollar Store and glue a magnet to the back (Loctight or E6000 or any strong glue should work) .

That is it. Now you have a really cute magnet to hold all your important papers.

The last project are these Canvas Magnets

Paint the mini canvas in any way you want, I did a galaxy, or stickers, or used a paint pen depending on what I wanted to do. In the video I show how I painted my galaxy if you are wanting to one like that.

Then you glue a magnet to the back and you now have a super cute magnet!

DIY Locker Magnets

Hello Everyone!

Recently I told my son some bad news, I told him that school is starting soon…haha.  He is not too excited, but when I was his age I was excited for back to school. Not necessary for school to start, but mostly for the school supplies. I do love school supplies. I still do, I am always buying pencils, pens, notebooks, and other supplies. You can never have too many pens, haha.

Anyway, with back to school nearly here there are lockers that will need to be decorated. So when my sister and her family were visiting last week  my niece and I decided to make some locker magnets because she going into middle school in the fall and she will have a locker for the first time! Her locker will be all kinds of awesomeness! .

Together we made magnets for her locker using stickers and flowers! This is an easy craft that kids can do to personalize their space.

Materials:

~Stickers and flowers

~Powder (I used foot powder, but baby powder would work)

~magnets

~Glue

 

Instructions

First take the sticker you want to use and put powder on the back. (I have a ton of stickers that I have collected through out the years, I seem to always pick up stickers when ever I am at the store. I just love stickers) Using powder is the trick to keeping the sticker from sticking to everything. I used foot powder because this is all I had, but baby powder works too. The powder sticks to the sticky part then you can put a magnet on.

We glued the magnet on (the magnets are sticky on the back, but I didn’t trust it so we glued it on) We used a magnetic sheet that we cut into smaller pieces.

We made a ton of sticker magnets and then we put magnets on some flowers I had. These all turned out super cute!

Also, I had these super cute Wall stickers that I got from the dollar store that look like frames. These are so cute so we made one of the stickers into a magnet frame. This will be perfect for her to show off her friends in her locker.

While she was in town we decided to make a magnetic board. We just took a dollar store frame and put a magnetic sheet in the frame. Then she decorated it will rhinestone (she is a girl after my own heart, you can never have too many rhinestones!)

I think it turned out awesome. (sorry the photo is backlit, but you can still see how cute she is.) It was so much fun to have a crafting buddy, I can’t wait until she comes back to town so we can do more projects together!
