Got old stationery? Repurpose them into these Cute Crafts to Make with Stationery Supplies! Perfect as back to school gifts for friends or for teachers.
Who doesn’t love stationery? I used to be embarrassed that I had a bigger collection of stationery supplies than my school going child, but not anymore! Now, I proudly display my stash and use it too!
However, while I don’t think one can have too much stationery, you can end up with a few things you’re not sure what to do about. And this is where repurposing comes to the rescue! Turn all those odds and ends or extras into brand new creations, that look even better than the raw materials. Isn’t recycling great?
Since 26th March is Stationery Day, it’s only fitting that stationery lovers across the world should unite – to make some cute crafts out of stationery supplies! There really is no limit to what you can use, so let’s get creating!
