Craft Roundup: School Pack It Up Time, Projects Kids Will Love All Year

Good morning, class. Welcome back to school! Today is a busy day for many families around metro Detroit as the school bell rings for a brand-new year. Your student (hopefully!) has all the school supplies she'll need to get her started on the right foot. But what are those school supplies packed in? This week's roundup features some adorable – and incredibly useful – project ideas that have locker/backpack/desk/etc. organization top of mind.

Duct Tape Flash Card Holder

Keeping study notes for a big test isn't as daunting when they're stored in a colorful holder. Cute as a Fox uses some of her favorite Duck Brand duct tape to create this upcycled study aid.

DIY Backpacks

Choosing a new backpack can be a tough choice. How do you make sure your new pack is one-of-a-kind? Skip the worry by making your own! Petit a Petit & Family created this modern, square backpack for the first day of kindergarten – and you can, too.

Monogrammed Letter Bags

School Supply Zip Pouches

Do these bags look familiar? They should: Melly Sews took school-staple classics (Crayola boxes, lined paper) and gave them the fabric touch by transforming them into a set of zippered school supply pouches.
