It’s back to school season! And that includes me!!!! I’m taking more advertising classes at BYU! And get this – I’m applying to the advertising program this fall! I’ll keep you posted on my progress and the status of my application. Cross your fingers and give me your good luck that I’ll get into the program!
I love school supplies. Don’t you?! Colorful pencils, glittery pencil pouches, cute erasers, Lisa Frank notebooks and folders…. It’s all glorious! But there’s nothing I love more than getting a backpack/book bag that screams my sense of fashion! And this faux fur backpack upgrade is a suuuuuuuper easy way to add some of your own taste to a simple backpack or book bag.
Backpack or book bag
Rainbow/colorful faux fur fabric
Fabric glue or hot glue & hot glue gun
Smooth out a piece of tissue paper over the area of your back pack or book bag where you plan on gluing the faux fur. Use a pencil to outline on the tissue paper the area you’re covering.
Cut the tissue paper stencil out.
Smooth out the tissue paper stencil on the back of your faux fur fabric. Trace the stencil using a Sharpie.
Cut it out.
Use fabric glue or hot glue to glue on the faux fur piece onto your back pack or book bag. Let the glue dry for 24 hours.
This is the second part of a two-part ice cream-themed DIYs for National Ice Cream Day (Pssst…it’s the 3rd Sunday in July every year)! And I’m really excited about this DIY – it’s really really simple and super cute!
DIY Ice Cream Cone Napkin Rings
Wooden napkin rings
Acrylic paint – various colors
Paint brushes – various sizes
Start by painting the whole napkin ring a waffle-cone color — golden brown. Let it dry.
Using a small brush, paint criss-crossing diagonal lines to create a waffle cone effect. Let it dry.
Paint a thin, wavy line on the very top, and fill it in with either “chocolate” or “strawberry” colored paint. Let it dry.
Happy National Ice Cream Day! (FYI it’s every year on the third Sunday in July — just in case you missed this year, now you know to celebrate next year!)
I’ve come up with 2 ice cream-themed DIYs that are super cute and suuuuper easy! (The easier the better, right?)
DIY Ice Cream Earrings
Wooden ice cream cone die-cuts – 2
Drill + small drill bit
Earring posts -2
Jump rings – 4
Start by drilling one small hole at the top of the ice cream cone die cut. Repeat this on the second one.
Use pliers to loop one jump ring into the hole you just drilled, and clamp it shut. Apply the second jump ring onto the last one, but don’t clamp it shut just yet.
Do this process to your second ice cream cone die cut.
Loop the earring post into the second jump ring, then clamp it shut.
Do this process to the second ice cream cone die cut.

DIY Lucky Charms Baggies
Nothing better on St. Patrick’s Day than the marshmallows from Lucky Charms! (If only the cereal was only marshmallows, am I right?) And what better way to celebrate St. Patty’s than to give a baggie of just the Lucky Charms mallows!
Cinch-tie canvas bags
Acrylic paint + brushes
Paint first the pink arch of the Lucky Charms rainbow marshmallow. Let it dry.
Paint second the yellow arch, followed by the blue arch. Let them dry.
Using white paint, paint the sparkles. Let it dry. That’s it!
