A DIY library book tote

One of the youngest members of our family got her first library card last week. Our sweet girl was so excited! When we got home, our library books ended up here:

That table catches everything!

I knew I needed to solve this problem, because I didn’t want the little sister to tear up the books. I found these super cool tote bags.

I grabbed some stick on letters.

I painted around the letters with some black craft paint.

Now we have a super cute tote to not only hold those books up out of reach, but we can use them to carry our books to and from the library!

I’m going to consider this a win. What quick and easy solution have you created lately?
