Backpack mixups can happen all of the time at school, between switching classrooms (for older kids), field trips, activities and more, especially when the bag designs are the same. The good news is, you can easily personalize your child's backpack with just a few supplies - for a result that stands out - and looks pretty too! Aleene's® Foiling Glue works on all kinds of surfaces and is super easy to use with stencils and applying with brushes. Purchase or create your own stencil and grab some Deco foil, and your child will have a shiny new personalized backpack to show off at school!

What you need:

- Aleene's Foiling Glue

- Backpack

- Name stencil

- Deco foil

Personalizing a backpack with Foiling Glue only requires two extra supplies! Create or purchase the name stencil, grab some Deco Foil in the color of your choice, and you're ready to get this project started. (If you'd rather freehand the name, that's completely fine too - skip the stencil!)
