Upcrafting School Supplies


It's that time of the year again! Yes, when we start buying school supplies and dream about little ones or big ones going back to school again. However, with four kiddos I have found over the years, that every year  there is often a lot of waste. There is a lot of unwanted packaging, and often extra supplies. So as I mom, designer, artist, deal finder, and all round thrifty person,  … I found that instead of getting really frazzled about back to school shopping I would "MAKE" the best out of it! So, I have! Back to school packaging and supplies are so close to scrapbooking and crafting supplies that it is so easy to repurpose waste into reusable items that can be used as gifts that even my teens don't mind taking to school! Or, with Christmas around the corner items like this upcrafted algebra case will make a perfect little gift for someone!

So, when so you are running around like crazy over the next couple of weeks trying to get kiddos ready for school, schedule a little craft time for yourself! It will make you smile!
