The ABCs of Back to School Paper Crafting

This post is brought to you by Martha Bonneau from MugsyBoo.

It’s hard to believe, but it is that time of year again and back to school is right around the corner.  Where did the summer go?  I feel like I blinked and it’s over!  Bags of school supplies have made their way home along with our groceries, and the hunt for the perfect backpack is in full swing.  I have to admit that, as a paper crafter, I get a little excited when the aisles in the stores start filling up with school supplies and a few things for me sneak home with my daughter’s supplies!

Today we are sharing some of our favorite back to school paper crafting ideas.  From fun teacher gifts to homemade locker accessories, we are making back to school crafting as easy as A, B, C!
