  • then we'll have a little sing along party

  • Okay so for today's video

  • actually this is a very special day in the modafam

  • BECAUSE

  • (splash) because this is the return of one of my favorite series on my channel

  • which is #back2schoolwithBeth

  • now i know that going back to school can be a very dreadful, stressful time

  • but I really hope that I can make going back to school at least a tiny bit fun and exciting for you guys

  • so that is why today I'm gonna show you DIY back to school organization

  • which is just a bunch of ways to organize your school work

  • and also organize your room a little bit

  • so it makes things easier when you get home from school

  • just a lot of really fun ideas that have helped me stay so organized recently

  • but I'm honestly in love with them all

  • and I really hope you guys try them out

  • so if you do, send me your pictures with the hashtag back2schoolwithBeth

  • I have very very exciting news for you guys that you'll actually see during this video

  • so I have just released my first ever room decor line

  • what even.. like

  • as you guys know I'm obsessed with decorating my room

  • and just a lot of interior design stuff, I really love it so much

  • and I was given an amazing opportunity by Aeropostale

  • to design me own bedroom line

  • so that's actually the bedding it's on my bed rut now and the pillows

  • Everything is actually available right now on aeropostale.com so I have a link below

  • but I'm just really excited about it

  • and it wouldn't be possible without you guys

  • so I hope you guys enjoy the stuff that I designed

  • because I'm in love with it

  • and I kind of never want to take this bedspread off my bed

  • cuz I really like it

  • Anyway I really hope you guys enjoy this back to school video

  • so without further ado, Bethany is going to stop talking

  • and.. let's get started!

  • (still here) so HOT!!!

  • okay, so first stop I'm gonna show you guys these adorable label notebook for each class that you're in

  • so I started off with taking a piece of cardstock paper

  • and then I just traced it out making sure it's the same exact size as the cover of my notebook

  • now if your notebook has holes like mine does

  • then you're gonna want to punch some holes into the cardstock paper

  • and after that, just apply thin layer of mod podge to your notebook and place the paper on top

  • okay then I found this very thin cork board

  • that is used for scrapbooking but I thought it went really well with the back to school theme

  • and then I got this dry erase sticker type of stuff

  • so basically it's like having a dry erase board on your notebook

  • and after that I just grabbed another piece of cardstock paper

  • and put that above the cork board for the label

  • so obviously you're just gonna put the subject of your class here

  • Yeah! We did it!!

  • anyway, I just wanted to say that I really love these notebooks

  • and I personally have never seen anything like these ones in stores before

  • so I definitely think they are very unique

  • and also labeling them just keeps ten of all of your work organized

  • so it's not all mixed up in one notebook

  • and of chalkboards are more you think

  • Dont worry! because I got your back

  • I start off with taking some tape to tape off the edges of my notebook

  • and then I just purchase some chalkboard paint from the craft store

  • and it actually took about from four to five coats

  • so you have to be a little patient with the drying process

  • but once it dries

  • you have this amazing chalkboard literally on your notebook

  • and then you can decorate it however you would like to

  • I just went with washi tape because I'm obsessed

  • and then there you go

  • all you need is some chalk and you can doodle when you're in your class

  • I am a huge doodler

  • and I just love to draw little pictures that make no sense

  • so, hopefully I'm not alone on that

  • My pencils are so BORING! (crying)

  • pattern pencils anyone?

  • so I'm not even gonna lie, I saw a bunch of these on Pinterest

  • and I really want to try them out

  • so all you really do is get some washi tape, ma fav thing ever

  • and you wrap it around your pencil

  • and you can also use wrapping paper or duct tape or something like that

  • and it makes such a big difference

  • and it literally takes just a few minutes

  • now I'm always that girl that has to ask someone else for a pen or pencil

  • cuz I just can't keep track on mine

  • so if you are like me

  • then this pencil pouch is gonna help us out

  • so just grab your scissors

  • and cut out eighteen by two inches of felt any color of your choice

  • and we are going to fold one side of that

  • and we, yes, are going to be sewing

  • Oh my gosh! look at me

  • I'm sewing, I'm so proud of me

  • you guys should be proud of me cuz I never so

  • so you just sew both of the edges

  • and then we're going to pick out a cute little button

  • and sew that on as well

  • and then all you need to do is cut a button hole on the flap

  • so obviously you can you know button your pencil pouch

  • and we are finished!

  • I can't even tell you guys how many of these are made

  • because it's kind of addicting

  • I'm just warning you

  • or maybe it's just me I don't know

  • I like sewing buttons okay

  • so that is it for the DIY school supplies portion of the video

  • and now, we have the "roomspiration" portion--

  • alright so one really easy way to keep things organized during back to school season

  • is these really BIG paper clips

  • and I got these for about $2.99 at a local craft store

  • and all I did was paint them with bright neon acrylic paint

  • they look really awesome especially when you set them on your desk

  • and you could put reminders or notes or anything like that you prefer

  • and how cute is this DIY bulletin board

  • this a great way to organize plans that you might have for the weekend

  • it also just look really cute on your wall

  • so I purchased my cork board tile at Joanne's craft store it's around eight dollars

  • and then what I did is I covered one-half of the cork board

  • with a really cool material that I already owned

  • and then the other half I covered with mod podge

  • and then I took the dry erase paper that I had some earlier

  • and I put that on the other side

  • so it's like half white board, half cork board

  • and then I just decorated with some glitter tape

  • this is so easy, it's insane

  • and it looks really really cute

  • and it's also very helpful for staying organized

  • now this project is called "the happy jar"

  • so it's not really about organizing your school work

  • it's more about organizing your thoughts

  • because at the end of a long day at school

  • you might be having a bad day

  • and what I do is I just write something that make me smile that day

  • and put it in the jar

  • and then later on you can look back on all the little things that made you happy :)

  • and last but not least

  • coming home to a clean bedroom always puts me in a good mood after a long day

  • however I don't always keep my room clean

  • but I like to keep it very colorful

  • and here is a little sneak peek to my bedroom collection

  • I will have the link to it below if you guys want to check it out

  • CHECK IT OUT!

  • just kidding heehee

  • and that is about it for this back to school with Beth video

  • I hope you guys enjoyed it

  • and give it a thumbs-up it you want to see more

  • love you guys--

  • really?!

  • (LOL)

  • Jacob!

  • (this is really intense)

  • the poor guy, like you just took off his head

  • and you split it into pieces

  • (and-- action)

  • it is already nine o'clock at night right now

  • and I swear it was five o'clock just like two minutes ago

huh i'm bored
