This must be the most interesting Back to School season of our lifetime! Most of us parents are making decisions about whether or not our kids would be learning remotely or in-person and ensuring that they have everything that they need to be comfortable and safe. This is the school year; we’re labeling everything or personalizing the kids’ supplies so they could feel like they’re having the school experience if they’re at home and for the necessity of keeping it from getting mixed up with other kids stuff if they’re attending in person. We still have a few weeks before starting the new school year here in New York City, but I whipped out my Cricut Maker machine this week to make the kids some personalized school supplies.
DIY Personalized Pencil Case
I used the Molecule design in Cricut DesignSpace and customized it by deleting the other images only, including this lab image in my project.
Then I selected to make it and used Cricut Infusible Ink transfer sheets in Rainbow Watercolor Splash.
Once my design was cut, I weeded it and then used the Cricut Easy Press to transfer the design to the pencil case. Cosmetic Bag Blanks Cosmetic Bags are perfect for pencil cases, and they come in three different sizes.
I really love how the design came out and how simple it was! It took me about 35 minutes to complete.
DIY Tote Bag
As most of you know, we’re big on reading over here, and after months of quarantine, the kids have read almost every book in this house. I’ve ordered more books than I would even want to think about, so we’re happy the library is open again, also though it’s limited service available. Keeping track of library books can be a struggle for us since we have so many books, so when I saw this Library Bag in Cricut Design Space, I knew it would be perfect to transport and store our borrowed books. This was a straightforward project that took me about 40 minutes, with most of that time spent weeding (most time-consuming part of the project).
To do this project, you will need a Cricut Canvas bag, Everyday Iron-on vinyl in a color of your choice, a Cricut weeder, and a Cricut Easy Press machine.
Start by selecting the design and selecting “Make this design”.
Then select “Mirror”.
Next cut design and weed.
Place the design center on your bag or as designed and then use Easy Press machine to transfer design to the bag.
I hope you find personalized school supplies inspiration from this post whether your kids are returning to school in-person, remotely, or you’re homeschooling this year..
