This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cricut. All opinions are 100% mine.
I absolutely love my Cricut Joy and have used it to personalize quite a few items for back to school!
Even though we chose the virtual education route this semester, I wanted to make sure Vivi had everything she needed. I also think that having fun and cute school supplies helps to get kiddos excited for school.
I’m newer to the Cricut world, and have absolutely loved exploring all the different products and materials over the last few months.
I had no idea just how easy and versatile my Cricut Joy would be – I wish I had gotten one sooner.
Let’s take a look at the six back to school items we personalized with our Cricut Joy, shall we?
Supplies needed for all six projects:
– Cricut Joy (or any other Cricut machine)
– Cricut smart vinyl in your favorite colors
– Cricut basic tool set
– Cricut Access (Standard or Premium)
– School supplies to personalize
Unicorn pencil box
I love how easy Cricut Design Space is to use, and there are a ton of pre-made designs to choose from with a Cricut Access subscription. You really can’t mess it up.
I chose some gold foil vinyl and Vivi decided she wanted to cut a unicorn and her name for her school box.
The art was quickly cut, and I gently peeled away the unicorn using the weeder tool, then I smoothed it onto the box with the scraper tool.
We repeated the same steps to add her name to the box.
Vivi loves her personalized school box – it fits her personality so perfectly!
Flamingo sandwich container and art organizer
We have a majorthing for flamingos in our house, and were really excited to find some flamingo graphics available in our Cricut Access subscription.
We settled on this simple one and decided to cut three of them.
The weeder tool was very handy at gently pulling away some of the smaller pieces.
Once the negative area was removed, I peeled off the first flamingo and gently added it to a cute sandwich and snack box with my scraper tool.
We added another flamingo to her art organizer box. I love how much personality a simple gold flamingo or two adds to these basic items!
In our house we really love making art, so this caddy gets a lot of use and also looks cute displayed on our distance learning shelf.
Initial sandwich box
On our other sandwich container, we decided to add a “V” to the lid. We chose a font from the hundreds of options in Cricut Access and had it cut.
This font has some very thin sections, so the weeder tool came in very handy again.
We then carefully applied it to the box. I love all these fun colors together!
We’re going to use these containers for our picnic lunches we plan to occasionally have during independent learning lunch hour.
Hearts and initial water bottle
Next we decided to fun up a water bottle. Vivi chose hearts and another “V” from our previous cuts.
I cut a large sheet of hearts in various sizes. I still cant get over how many pre-made designs there are to choose from, and just how easy Design Space is to use.
I slowly applied each hart around the water bottle until they wrapped all around.
The “V” was the perfect finishing touch!
Hearts bento box
We found another heart design and decided to cut a couple more in gold vinyl to add them to a bento box.
Bento boxes come in so handy for snack times. I try to fill them with a variety of snacks in the morning and Vivi snacks form them throughout the day.
And here’s a look at all six personalized back to school items! I think they all turned out pretty cute, and Vivi loves everything.
I highly recommend personalizing your back to school gear with a Cricut to get your kiddos even more excited for the year ahead!
I hope everyone has a safe and healthy back to school season!
