Almost back to school

We've been school shopping these past few weeks, trying to get all those supplies for the best price. Alexis needed a pencil box again this year, but still had hers from last year and it was in good condition. She was a little bummed that she didn't get a new one, so we took out the craft supplies and jazzed it up!

I used a hot glue gun and an assortment of brightly colored buttons. After I glued the buttons on, Alexis decided that we needed a bit of sparkle, so we added some gems. Of course, we needed her name on there, so I found some letter tiles and put those on as well.
She's pretty excited to show everyone her new/old pencil box!

  1. That's a great idea! I should let my little guy decorate his. He is quite the artist.
