From notebooks to labels to stamps, there are so many ways for you to help your kids make their mark on the world. Or at least their school supplies. Today's back-to-school post is about making your kids' supplies unique to them.
Photojojo has an amazing video tutorial to help you make these adorable photo journals! Take any photo and make it into the cover of a handmade book, perfect for taking notes, making lists, or just doodling. No one will mistake the owner of this notebook! What a rock star!

Here are a few we made from her instructions.
Teachers shouldn't have any trouble identifying the owner of any item with their face stamped on it! Craftpudding makes custom stamps from a picture of your child. They are incredibly darling. You can even have their name put under their likeness. Check out her blog and her etsy.com store. She is out of town so I couldn't ask permission to post photos of her work--you'll just have to take a look for yourself! I still can't believe the time and talent it must take her to create these little gems.
If you're really ambitious, try making your own stamps with plastic erasers with this tutorial. Don't forget--if you carve a name for a funky label stamp, it should be carved backwards so it reads the right way when stamped.
Okay, so now that you've labeled everything your child owns, leave us a comment with your blog link so we can enter you in our giveaway! You'll get something from every back-to-school post this week!
