DIY Tutorial: How to Kawaii-ify Your School Supplies

Hi everyone!
Wish your school supplies looked like this?




Well then ladies and gentlemen, stay tuned for this tutorial ^^



Purchase or retrieve some boring white binders.


Paint them in whichever color tickles your fancy. I used regular acrylic paint~


After the paint dries, spray the binder with clear aerosol sealant. I also sprinkled mine with some glitter ^^


This is the point at which this post stops being helpful x). For this particular binder, I added a sparkly ribbon and lace trim with my E6000 glue.

Add bows, flowers, or mini stuffed animals.

This is from last year >< That's why it appears to have been abused.

If the binder you're using has a pouch in front, I recommend just slipping in a piece of scrapbook paper.


Covering it with decorative tape is always an option as well ^^


I left space on all of my binders to add the names of my classes when I get my schedule. Obviously this is optional~



 Well, that's about it. Good luck in school everyone!


*By the way guys, sorry about the poor photos >< camera troubles.
