Want glam school supplies? You can easily do so on a very tight budget with these simple tricks and ideas!
Shopping for school supplies can be fun, but it can be expensive. The prettier the supplies, the more they cost. There are some hacks you can easily do yourself had have fun glam school supplies!! We’ve even included some fun printables to make this even easier for you too! 😉
You can turn any old scotch tape into a fun, and personalized tape with just a piece of scrapbook paper, and some scissors!
Disassemble your tape. Remove the roll, and then remove the paper insert.
Trace that paper insert on the back of the paper you want to use. Make sure you flip the paper insert from the tape to be upside down too. Trace it with a pencil and cut it out. Put the paper back in the dispenser, and then the roll of tape back in as well.
Look how pretty that is! You didn’t have to pay extra for special, designer tape, but you have customized, adorable tape that took five minutes and next to no money!
Plain notebooks are definitely cheaper, but don’t usually make our kids as happy. Use a sharpie (we used gold!) and some cookie cutters to transform these notebooks from plain to glam in no time!
See how fun these turned out to be? Just a few minutes, and some cookie cutters, and these were totally transformed! Let the kids decorate their own, even, and their notebooks will be a work of art!
Colored staples are my weakness. I don’t know why, but I always want to buy the brightly colored staples that cost four times as much. No more! Use a sharpie, any color, and just color those staples! Look how much they look just like the ones from the store!
Binders get super expensive, super fast. Stick with the plain binders, and add a fun customized paper insert that will glam up any binder in an instant.
