As summer winds to an end we all get a little emotional.  Memories were made, vacations were taken, images captured.  What better way to commemorate these events than with this awesome frame?  It just screams summer with flip-flops, sand, sun, and seashells:

The beach has become iconic of the American summer vacation.  Families across the country take an average of 4.5  trips per year, and sun and sand are the most popular destinations. The end of summer also brings back-to-school preparations.  It might be your child’s first time off to kindergarten, or a nearly grown teenager returning to class.  Either way, we have to get ready.  We want them to look their best on that first day back.  Hair combed smoothly, wearing the trendiest looks to hide their nervousness.  Be sure to snap a shot of them as they head out the door.  They’re sure to complain, but you’ll be glad they did when you can look back at them in this frame in a few years:

While shopping for new clothes and shoes to wear, don’t forget to grab supplies!  Fill up that new backpack with brightly colored pencils, pens, folders, and notebooks.  The store shelves are filled with every character and color scheme the kids are into.  With more options than ever before, back-to-school will be a lot less “boring.”  Check out this frame for inspiration:

As the school year progresses, there are various concerts, plays, parties, and sporting events to record for future reminiscing.  Also, you cannot forget the everlasting school picture.  Using Imikimi frames will provide boring school pictures with the opportunity to shine, and they’ll make cherished keepsakes for friends and family:

Your child’s teacher plays a significant part of his or her school year.  Teachers are with the kids day in and day out and (usually) come to feel as if they are their own children.  Sneak a class picture while you’re on a field trip, or take a photo of the teacher from the yearbook and stick it here for a Christmas gift that’s sure to make her smile:

Capri Sun Pencil Case

The beginning of another school year is right around the corner. Have you finished shopping for school supplies? Do you like to recycle? If it’s a “yes” to recycling, we have a perfect craft for you: a Capri Sun pencil case that can be used as a pencil, eraser, crayons, or mechanical pencil holder. It’s fast, easy, and unique, made out of one of your child’s favorite drinks.

Supplies

  • 6 Capri Sun pouches (washed and dried)
  • 1 10″ zipper
  • sewing essentials: sewing machine, thread

Cut a slit on the bottom of each Capri Sun pouch and pour contents into pitcher.

Next, wash out each pouch and let it completely dry.

Sew 3 Capri Sun bags together, side-by-side, overlapping by approximately 1cm, image facing up. Make 2 sets of 3 bags, one for each side of pencil-case. You can use a straight stitch or a double straight stitch, your choice.

It’s time to sew on the zipper. Place the zipper right-side down on the right-side top of one of the sides. Line up the edge of the zipper with the top edge of the side of the pencil-case. Now with using a zipper foot, sew the zipper on.

Take the other group of 3 bags sewn together and place it on top of the one you just sewed the zipper onto, right sides together. Line up the top edge of that side with the edge of the zipper. Flip over and use a zipper foot to sew on zipper to that side of your pencil case.

Flip that side over and press down, then top stitch on that side of pencil case right under the zipper.

Finally, finish it up by sewing sides of pencil case together. With wrong-sides together, and zipper at top, sew the other 3 sides of the case, not including side with zipper. Make sure to catch the front and end of the zipper in your stitching and make sure to back-stitch at beginning and end. Now your child will have his or her own unique pencil case for school.

I hope you all enjoyed out back to school DIY Carpri Sun pencil-case.
