Your back to school style says a lot about who you are so make the most of it and update your school bag to reflect your personality.

Famous YouTube guru Brittany Balyn, user name Brittkneegirl1, teamed up with Teen Vogue to demonstrate how she transformed her bag into a rocker-chic bag that totally encapsulates her punk fashion sense. Using lots of craft store and dollar store items, it is actually super easy to make your backpack more stylish than a designer handbag, with plenty of cheap and cheerful customization options including studs of all shapes and sizes, buttons and safety pins galore.

In her DIY school bag design tutorial, Brittany also switches out the classic zipper toggles for ornate, vintage-looking keys for a Gothic look. Stats for DIY Punk Backpacks Trending: Older & Warm
