Decorate Your Locker!

You may not exactly be thrilled about going back to school this fall, but here's one thing you can definitely look forward to - decorating your locker! Giving your locker a cool makeover from bare to beautiful can help take your mind off the homework load and pop quizzes. Plus, it's a fun way to start off the school year and get to know your locker neighbors!

Express Yourself With Magnets

Magnets are the best way to decorate your locker cuz they're removable. Colorful, funky magnets will brighten your day as you make pit stops between math and history classes. You can also make a removable album by gluing personal photos or cutout magazine pics onto the magnets.

What's Your Theme, Baby?

Decorating is an expression of your personality, which is why you should pick a theme for your locker.

  • Glam - Going glam is a fun way to dress up your locker cuz even superstars need a place to stash books and make-up bags! Glamor queens can decorate with pretty mirrors, flashy stars, jeweled magnets and pics of Hollywood celebs.
  • Sporty - Put up posters of your fave athletes and place trophies that you've won from previous championship games on locker shelves. You can even play a short game of basketball between classes by sticking a small hoop onto your locker with strong magnets.
  • Tropical - Create an on-campus paradise by hanging fabric flowers, dried leis and vacation pics from when you surfed in Hawaii last summer. You can even take an old hula skirt and magnetize the grassy fringe to your locker shelf!

The Rules

Just like your bedroom, you've got to keep your locker clean! So make a habit of throwing out any leftover lunches and taking home those dirty gym socks on a regular basis. And don't stick, tape or glue anything onto your locker since you've gotta give it back at the end of the school year. Happy decorating!

You should make a collage of all your pics; good/Bad doesn't matter...! atleast, she'll remember all the memories of you...! make a sequence, like from your kindergarden to the present. You may involve many of your friends.. This'll make all of it fun! To top it all, Add Your petnames you gave to each other during the wonderful time you were together..I mean, write those on the top of your collage using a glitter!  If you wish to keep it simple, Buy a photo frame instead... this'l lessen your work load and u can add pics..Or refer to some other D-I-Y ideas.. like making a Bracelet or a card.. gifting something like a mug or pendant or a watch can be equally nice but they lack a special touch.. Anyway's upto you to decide.. Whatever you do, i know it's gonna be so much Fun! After all, Who knows' her better Than you! :) :D xD
