[WPXperVideo id=5 ][Music] hey crafty pandas we’re back at school with some new custom accessory ideas to help you get through the day discover new ways to transform everyday items into school supplies and other DIY school hacks [Music] jessica is a bit bored during her class and can’t stop doodling in her notebook stop it you’re making me sleeping now oh wow our first page looks like a kindergarten mess definitely not what we want in our journal Jessica just got an idea for her notebook how about a downsized chalkboard we’re about to get messy cover your table with baking paper cover the front binder edge with protective paper tape add a solid layer of chalkboard paint starting with horizontal lines let it dry for a minute and then add a second layer painting vertically remove the safety tape and discard the baking paper and you’re done grab some chalk and fill it up with sketches and/or school notes the best part about chalk it can easily be removed with a wet cloth Jessica can now draw as much as she wants without messing up the actual pages of her notebook emily is using her nail file in class the littles as she no it’s not allowed well at least not in front of the teacher luckily she has a spare one laying in her pencil case but how can we make sure the teacher doesn’t compensate it again using a ruler and pen mark up your nail file with measurements [Music] add some numbers for an extra visual that was fast Emily can now continue to use her nail file and pretend it’s a ruler during class now she’ll be using her ruler more than ever just made me not for math Emily and Jessica are working on their homework Emily wants to put a touch of lip balm but cheese all out what a bummer Jessica’s bendable eraser sure looks cool but wouldn’t it be much cooler if it was just a little sturdier wait a second maybe this lip balm case doesn’t have to go to waste squish and kneadable eraser and form it into a lipstick shape first you’ll want to clean the lip balm out using a cotton swab really dig in there it’s going to take a few minutes now just insert the eraser inside the hole voila you can now use your redesign lipstick to erase all your pencil mistakes get ready to mess with your classmates let’s put the top back and give it to Jessica to try out I wonder if she’ll notice the changes we made try it out on a paper silly wow it actually works the lip balm container keeps the eraser in tack meanwhile I think it’s best we stick to the real lip balm instead Madison had another sleepless night and can’t stay focused she is about to pass out in class girl you can’t sleep in class at least not like this pile of notebooks might be a bit too low for your head I wish there was something comfy er around that pencil case is also not going to help you out either hmm and a lunchbox is definitely too hard for your chin all this discomfort doesn’t change the fact that she’s about to pass out in class out might as well go back home and take a nap Madison cheese ouch that looks really bad the dog destroyed Madison’s soft toy this morning and cotton wool is scattered all over the place Madison just thought of an idea on how to put this stuffing to good use let’s empty this ziploc bag and then stuff it with this leftover cotton wool now to just place this new padding into the front pocket of our backpack zip it up and we’re done Madison will no longer have to worry about comfort because she’ll be able to grab a quick nap anywhere well as long as no one’s watching sweet dreams Madison hey Madison welcome back to class grab your exercise book and put that pencil to good use Madison is still thinking about the amazing time she had in Paris darn it how did this happen don’t tell me all the pencils got broken in my bag you should probably protect your pencils by buying a case or even better come up with an idea to make one yourself [Music] Emily’s makeup brush roll sure looks like it does a great job of keeping her brushes secured in one place if only we could do something similar grab a long piece of felt then use a ruler to mark a dozen small lines grab some scissors to make some cuts using both of the horizontal holes place all of your colored pencils through roll the fabric into a big burrito place the single drop of hot glue in the center and attach a ribbon add a decorative ribbon for a visual twist the ribbon will keep the pencil case and tack tie the up and you’re done Madison is back in class this time with our custom DIY pencil roll which almost looks like waves of a rainbow even emily is impressed by Madison’s creativity do you mind if I borrow one emma has once again mess of her class schedule and has disturbed the class slink quietly into your desk girl and pretend none of this happen unfortunately Emma is about to realize she completely messed up her schedule and forgot about her math test today eyyy eyyy back at home she realizes that her system of sticky notes are messy and impractical but now all that is about to change Emma can’t allow herself to miss class anymore let’s grab our old comics picture flip it and remove the cover replacing the art page with a newly printed calendar put the cover back flip it and you’re all done glass is the perfect surface to mark all of your important dates using an erasable marker with the help of the calendar Emma won’t have anymore scheduled mix-ups and will be ready for every test oh look we got here a bit earlier just enough time to till [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] hey crafty pandas
