are getting into the
back-to-school season! They grabbed a few of their favorite school supplies (this
and this slide pencil
), and stuff we know
got on hand: magazines, scissors, tape and glue. Talk about the easiest
Make sure to use a 1 inch clear
binder, so that the pretty colored paper would show through. We lightly
taped strips of Ultra Fuschia Brite Hue paper and Ultra Pink Brite Hue paper
vertically along the inside cover of the binder. We cut an equal number of strips
of Ultra Blue Brite Hue paper and weaved them horizontally through the pink
strips. Once we finished weaving, we secured all the strips by gluing the edges
down. Then we simply cut out cool letters from our magazines to spell out the course subject and glued them to the front of our binder. That’s it! Just a few simple steps using a few simple materials and our binder is ready for school. Finally, a reason to look forward to English class.
Chic slider pencil
Our slider plastic
pencil case was initially green, but we wanted to give it a sleeker
look. So we took some black linen paper and wrapped our pencil case like a
gift. We cut out some pictures and words from our magazine collection and glued
them on to create a collage. Of course, when we were finished, our newly
designed case was too cool for pencils. So we filled it with some of our
favorite makeup, candy, gum…all the essentials for a productive school day.
