See how to make your own school supplies from recycled materials!

How is it already time to think about back to school supplies? This summer has just flown right by. While it can be nice to get back to a weekly routine, the idea of getting the kiddos ready for the school year is overwhelming! Everyone wants new school supplies and organizers… but what if you could make your own? Good news – you totally can! Plus, you can use up the last of these lazy summer afternoons crafting with the kids as you work on making your own supplies. I just love all of these ideas!

Make your own paper organizer, pen organizer, pencil bag, mouse pad, and tiered notebook. Everything is just so cute! And I bet you have most of the supplies around the house already – cereal boxes, zip lock bags, toilet paper rolls, and paper. Go ahead and see how to turn these household items into school supplies!
