Brittany from Pennies into Pearls contacted me at the beginning of the summer to see if I wanted to do this post. I was so excited to do a back-to-school post for her. I love Pennies into Pearls. It is such a fun site, and I love how much you can learn from Brittany. Her motto of making pennies into pearls is just so cleaver. Sometimes it is just easier to go buy something rather then make it. Is it really saving you any money though? I think not! I love that so many things can be made yourself easier and cheaper rather then buying them. I am so in love with this new DIY back to school pencil bag I made. It’s so easy and I made it in about an hour. I am sure the next one I make I will be able to make it quicker though. They are just that easy. This would be a great project for your kids to do during those last weeks before school starts. Crazy that summer has flown by so fast, and school is about to start. Lets start out a great year with a pretty rad pencil bag. Enjoy! Check out my tutorial at Pennies into Pearls.
