although i'm not in school anymore, i still love cute little school supplies. i thought it would be cool to get some handy dandy DIY accessories. you can make book covers, laptop cozies, pencil cases, tape dispensers, binders, folders, pocket protectors Cool, excess supplies, etc. What do you guys think?

here's a description of the swap i put together this morning. please add any suggestions to this thread.

Love cute and original school supplies that no one else has, but everybody wants? Does writing with a furry pencil motivate you to do homework? Then this is the swap for you! Whether you are in high school, college, joining this swap for your elementary school child, or just love school supplies, there's always a need for pens, pencils, binders, and notebooks. But it doesn't stop there...

med student? how about a stethoscope cozy, decorated clipboard, or scrubs?
art student? how about a camera cozy or paint brush/pastel/colored pencil/charcoal roll
cosmetology? craft a makeup bag, smock/apron, handmade soaps and scrubs
studying law? how about a legal pad folder, or briefcase
...and so on...
here are some other ideas:
pencil case, diploma frame, backpack/messenger bag, lunchbox, jewelry representing your partner's studies, eyeglass holder or chain, pocket protector, alarm clock, book cover/cozy...the list is endless!

Yeah, that's a really great idea! Things like this pencil roll or cute folders or something. I'd probably be in if this went ahead.

that pencil roll is too cute! this swap would be good for college students too. they could specify classes they're taking. So; a pencil or brush roll for and art student, camera strap for a budding photographer, legal pad folder for, well, a law student, scubs for a med or nursing student, etc...

That's such a great idea! I know that my school supplies are feeling rather blank. I would totally be in for this.

When would you organise this swap?

I would probably be interested--I always love taking notes in beautiful notebooks!

I post pictures of all of my crafty adventures on my flickr and my blog!
