Book Bag for Beaks

April 7, 2014

Beaks' kindergarden teacher sent home some cheap plain bags for the parents to decorate. These bags will be used to bring home their books from the library each week... 
I am so used to decorating this for Boogs which is so easy because she's pretty girly! You can hot glue all kinds of fun embellishments for a girl!!! Flowers, bling, glitter, ect... 
It's a little harder for a boy... While I was walking through the aisles of Joanns this morning, looking for some inspiration... I passed an aisle with all kinds of duct tape... neon, mustaches, Hello Kitty, and then I saw it... Angry Birds duct tape!!! 
So I bought it with my 50% off coupon and came home to see what I could come up with. 

Ta-Dah!!!! Not only is he going to love the fact that his bag is covered in Angry Birds... it's going to be a lot more durable thanks to the duct tape!!! 

All I did was lay the tape down in strip with enough to wrap a little bit around the other side... Keep doing this all the way up both sides of the bag... Then for the bottom,  I made a seam so that the tape wouldn't peel up. 

Done!!! And all for under $5.00
