Can you believe back to school is coming up and back to school shopping has already started? Where did the summer go? ha! We love stopping by Sam’s Club & checking out their back to school sales each year. This back to school season Sam’s Club is partnering with participating Kellogg’s and J.M. Smucker Company products to bring you a special “Start School Like a Champion” offer where you get one Scholastic book for free & another book gets donated to a local school. Isn’t that awesome? Annnnnd I think this cute DIY Quiet Bag would be perfect for holding your free book in! Let’s get started! 🙂

Sam’s Club is a great one stop shop for back to school supplies, lunch box favorites, breakfast items & back to school sales. I also love how you can buy in bulk & really stock up on all those back to school essentials. Right now you can look for these specialty marked boxes like these Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes. Then, like I said when you purchase these products you can get one book for your child, & then each Sam’s Club has partnered with a local school to make a book donation to that school.

My kiddos love to read! So I decided to make a cute DIY Quiet Bag that they can stick in their backpacks, or keep in the car to take with them to church, to look at during the car rider pick up line or to take to an after school dentist appointment. (Yes, I just scheduled those! ha!) These little bags are perfect for holding a few books, paper & markers ~ everything my kiddos need to keep them quietly busy for a little while.

For this project you will need:
canvas bag
heat transfer vinyl
digital cutting machine

First, iron your bag, so it is nice & smooth.
