Back to school Bag #Bostik Challenge


Its already August and the school summer holidays are in full swing but it won't be long before school opens in September. Shops are already geared up with school uniforms, stationery shops are all packed with back to school stationery and bags. This month the Bostik challenge box has a "back to school" theme.

As always Little M and I always create a craft together from the bostik box, but Little M visiting her grandparents for the summer holiday so she was not able to create the craft with me. This month in the box there were lots of funky foam letters and alphabet, a pencil holder some card , fabric and a tote bag.  I really liked the idea of decorating the tote bag with a back to school theme. The bag is perfect to carry a sandwich and a small drink or alternatively note book and pencils.



To create the back to school tote bag you will need:

I fabric tote bag
An old magazine
Felt Tip pens of choice
Bostik glue
Foam letters.


How to make:

1.First place the old magine inside the tote bag so that when you draw on it the ink will not pass through the fabric to the other side.
2. Arrange the funky foam letters to spell back to school and using the blue stick them on the tote bag.(Although the letters had sticky back peel off,  they were not sticky enough so it is better to add extra glue to make them stick better.)


3. Using your coloured pens Draw any type of school doodling on the bag.
4. Leave to dry with the magazine still in it so that the ink does not transfer to the underside of the bag. Once the ink is dry remove the magazine and your bag is ready to fill with scool goodies or stationery.


Being part of the Bostik 2016 bloggers with Tots100 and Merrily Crafts, I was sent some craft items in a box to create this project.
