Can you believe that the summer is almost over, and back to school shopping has begun?! I mean, I’m not going back to school but any excuse for shopping is one I’ll take. Since everyone else has back to school on the brain, I whipped up the perfect project for families and teachers alike- this colorful pencil cup, using the humble paper roll! That’s right, we have a true trash-to-treasure treat for you today (say that 5 times fast!). You just need a few basic supplies that you probably have on hand.
My favorite part of back to school shopping was always getting brand new stationery. I was always picking out my favorite notebooks, folders and pens for the new school year. I always loved getting this fresh new gear. It’s a love I still have to this day, as I purchase unnecessary notebooks and markers. They take over most of my desk space, as I need a marker or pen in every single color for every single possible use. Thin markers, thick ones, pencils, pens… even erasable markers for my notes! I even have a giant puoch of markers that I keep with me at all times.
These would also make a great teacher gift when filled with some new supplies for the school year- pencils for the kids and markers for the teacher to grade papers with! I’m sure teachers have more than enough mugs and apple shaped things, plus everyone loves something homemade and useful. It would look so cute on a teacher’s desk.
The full DIY is over on the Giggles Galore blog, so head on over to take a look!
