Books and Notebooks - Make your own notebooks for school

Even if you've outgrown cartoon characters, there's no reason you can't have fun, individual school notebooks. Check out these easy back-to-school craft projects for cool ways to personalize your notebooks, textbooks, and three-ring binders.

Pens and Pencils - School pens and pencil crafts

Fun pens and pencils are a back to school essential (at least until we achieve the paperless classroom), but you don't have to be content with boring ballpoints and overpriced pencils. Here you'll find a bunch of different ways to customize your pencils and pens.

Bags and Cases - Essential back to school crafts for teens

With all these DIY school supplies, you'll need a way to carry them. Fortunately there are a whole slew of craft tutorials for book bags, DIY backpacks, pencil cases, and even reusable lunch bags.

Recess! Time for a poll...
