Craft Roundup: Back to School DIY Projects

My nephew started his very first week of kindergarten last week in Indiana – I can't believe it's school season already! While we're still not quite in full school mode back here in metro Detroit, it's definitely on the horizon. Some of my favorite bloggers are already on the case, coming up with some adorable – and handy – craft projects to help ring the school bell for a new year.
