I can’t say I’m a huge DIYer. I love drooling on other people’s projects, but as soon as I look at the long, long, long list of steps and supplies I get scared off.
Luckily this project is very lazy DIYer friendly.
All the supplies!
Everything I used for this project is right here. I used an old book (pages chopped out), a cheap thrifted bag, the most hard core craft glue I could find, and a pair of kiddie scissors.
It was quite smelly.
This bright orange 1930s “French in 20 Lessons” book made a lovely cover for my bag.
The only change I made to the bag I found was chopping off a big bow. Snippity snip!
Next I whipped out my heavy duty glue and applied liberally to the cover.
This glue was kind of miraculous. I held it together for a few minutes and then it was golden!
24 hours later: BAM! Book Bag
For me “packing essentials” means filling up whatever bag I’m carrying. So this bag keeps the amount of extra stuff I carry around to a minimum. This orange on orange might be a bit much though.
Ahh, navy blue and orange. Much better.
Easy DIY completed. Give me feedback if you have ideas for improving this project or other easy-peasy DIY projects I could check out.
