PINK Back2school DIY supplies

School season is approaching fast! I will have all three kiddos in school and my youngest being a girl, I couldn’t help myself and made her a binder, notebook and clipboard. The funny thing is that she is only going into preschool, but you can’t never start them too young with cute school supplies right? Please take a look below at the list of supplies I used. A tutorial will follow this weekend. But I’m posting the pictures and supplies in case you want to get started this weekend ;)

1: I found this notebook for 1$ at Ben Franklin dollar section.
2: I color blocked the notebook with pink washi tape. The polka dots are 3/4 inch circle stickers made of kraft material. They really blend perfectly with the notebook. You can find these at Amazon.
3: The alphabet sticker is from Pebbles and you can find it at Scrapbook website. The crown sticker I used as the “dot” for the letter “i” is an old sticker I made for my daughter’s princess party. To make this you need a crown puncher, pink sparkly card stock and a xyron or just plain glue.

1: The clipboard is also from Ben Franklin’s dollar section. Then the paint I used is soy based, (more kid friendly and less chemicals ;) The paint is “Delta Soy Pink Camilla” and you should find it at any craft store.
2: I used the same circle stickers from Amazon.
3: I also used the same alphabet stickers from “Pebbles“.

1: This binder is very sturdy and well made! I also found it at Ben Franklin on sale for 2.99$.
2: I used the same soy based pink paint mentioned above.
3: The stickers are the same I used for the notebook and clipboard.
4: I used a white leather cord to secure the binder. The bird shape is something I made a while ago. I used a bird die from Ben Franklin’s die cut center and stamped it with a chevron texture rubber stamp. You can learn how to make the leather wrapped around the binder from a prior post here.
