DIY School Supply Containers

Share this!

Organizing supplies for back to school can be pretty crazy around here.  These DIY school supply containers are made from RECYCLED plastic canisters and they work great!  You could do them with jars, cereal boxes or other plastic food containers too!  Because they can be done quickly, they are perfect for day FOUR of Craft Lightning, Back to School!


Yep, that’s right, it is day FOUR.  If you missed out, you can still check out days ONE, TWO and THREE!

I made cute die-cuts with dies from my calendar collection for Ellison!  I wrote the container contents on the die-cuts then used Scotch brand packing tape to adhere them to the canisters.  My fave die here is the sun and you can grab it HERE on Amazon!


Ta Da!  I am not even kidding, easy peasy…mac and supplies not cheesy.  You can see what supplies we use most around here!

  1. These supply canisters are cute and a great way to get and stay organized. How perfect that they are done by recycling plastic canisters. Thank you for linking up to The Party Gals Linky Party!

  2. Cute idea. What canisters did you recycle. I’ve never seen those before, and I love them. (Maybe I’ll go buy whatever they used to be!)
