Hi, Here Comes the Sun readers! I'm Jessica, and I blog at Mom 4 Real. I love to share easy craft, DIY, and decor ideas. I have two kiddos that keep me extremely busy, and I love making things for them. Here is one of the projects that we worked on for back to school this year...
I really wanted to show you how you can take a boring ole backpack and dress it up, but the minute my little girl, Kate, saw the newest Justin Bieber backpack, that was a no go. So instead, I am going to show you how to take a boring lunch tote and turn it into a one of a kind super cute lunchbag!
Start with any plain lunch bag. I bought a pack of 3 for $10 at Target. Get some things together to embellish it with. I chose some ric-rac, a ruffled piece of fabric and buttons.
Now grab your hot glue gun, and go to work. I started by hot glueing a piece of ric-rac across the front. You could use ribbon instead, or any number of things.
Next, I took a piece of ruffled fabric that I had left over and twisted it into a flower. You could use silk flowers, or cut some out of felt to use as well.
Last, I glued two buttons in the middle. It was so super simple, and no-one at school will have the same one! What do you think? Wouldn't your little one love their own personalized lunchbag?
