3 Quick (and really simple) Back to School Cricut Projects

3 Quick (and really simple) Back to School Cricut Projects

School starts for my kiddos tomorrow so nothing like a quick last minute project to send them off in style, right?  This project was extremely easy and makes me feel like SuperMom!


For the first project, I personalized their lunch pails and my son’s backpack.  I used Heat Transfer Vinyl in Red Glitter and in Silver Glitter.  I just cut out my kids names with my Criciut Explore and ironed them on to their lunch pails and the backpack

(word of caution – the material tends to melt easily so press for as little time as possible, use a pressing cloth, and move your iron frequently).

It took minutes and I think it turned out great.  There won’t be any question who’s bags these are!

As a quick safety note – I want to mention that I put my son’s name on the back of his backpack so it will be up against his back while he’s wearing it.  The last thing I would want is some stranger seeing his name on his backpack and using it against him!

The second project was equally quick.  My daughter needed an index card box and I used Cricut Vinyl and cut our her name and a picture of a globe.  I highly recommend using transfer tape to make the process significantly easier.  I’m sure she’ll have the best-dressed box in class.


Hope you enjoyed!!
