It’s that time off year already it seems! For many the new school year may look quite different depending on where you live, but regardless of whether you’ll be attending in-person or online classes, preparing cute stationery and supplies is the fun part!
If you’re still enjoying Animal Crossing, oddloop’s Etsy shop (USA) has a New Horizons planner sticker kit worth adding to your weekly planning rotation! While designed for planners with vertical layouts, the stickers can be used in any planner style with a little creativity. There’s also a listing for individual stickers from the set if you don’t want to commit to a full kit.
Looking for a simple planner option you can DIY from start to finish instead? Caitlin’s Corner has several video tutorials on student bullet journal layouts, but her most recent bullet journal layout tutorial for online students seems extra relevant right now. You can always add cute stationery to the spreads later if you’re in the mood for something more decorative!
And for anyone in the mood for DIYing some supplies, C Channel on Youtube has a video on 10 different school supply DIYs. It’s actually a montage of individual DIYs for things like pencil toppers and memo holders that you can find on their channel, but the links are all conveniently collected in the description.
For even more cute DIYs, it’s worth checking out kawaiisweetworld’s channel too! She actually has several different videos to watch that covers several supplies, like writing utensils and pencil cases, but the DIY kawaii notebooks tutorial is my personal favorite.
One fast and simple way to personalize supplies like planners, notebooks, and binders is to make your own stickers from digital clip art and stick away! TheHappyGraphics offers loads of affordable options, like their kawaii solar system clip art set—I wish I’d seen that when I had an astronomy class!
And while it’s not necessarily a craft tutorial, WaysToStudy has a great video on creating a organization system for school…
…and studycollab.: alicia’s channel has a similar organization video that takes a slightly different approach. I do recommend watching both if you’re looking for fresh suggestions to make the most of your school year.
Need more ideas? You can find even more back to school posts in the archives.
Andi lives in the countryside of Georgia in a house packed with kawaii decor and vintage toys. When she’s not barricaded in her pink craft room creating something, she can be found reading, playing Animal Crossing games, or baking something to satisfy her massive sweet tooth. Andi is currently taking a mental health break, but hopes to be back in 2023.
