DIY Decorated Backpack
We are so excited that school is starting! Part of our back to school routine is getting a new backpack. The best part about this backpack is that is can be decorated!
Did you know that Michaels offers a 15 percent discount for teachers every day. Your local store can fill you in on all the details.
If you are a teacher or leader in charge of activities for a crowd and need a large quantity of one back to school item but don’t see enough on the shelves, just ask. Michaels offers a bulk ordering program where you can order as many supplies as you need and save up to 20 percent.
I also love the Michaels app. I no longer have to save or look for coupons. The latest deals and coupons are right on my phone.
While at Michaels we grabbed a back pack, fabric markers and of course some bling.
I loved how simple the iron-on rhinestones were to use. Simply place them where you want on the fabric.
Iron from the back side according to manufacture instructions.
Once cool, peel of the plastic.
Tadah! You have bling!
Bella also wanted to give her new backpack some embellishments and add her name. Sometimes it can be hard to get letters placed correctly so I had her use a piece of chalk to write out her name first. This also took the pressure off of knowing the markers are permanent.
Bella then went over the lines with a fabric marker.
Once she started she couldn’t stop. She loved coloring on her backpack.
Yes, in the future we might have that talk about editing and less is more, but for now she is so very proud of her masterpiece. She can’t wait for school to start!
