It’s that time of year! All the kiddos are heading back to school. What better way to greet your new teacher then with giving her something a little extra! Like some much needed Sharpie markers with this adorable DIY Back To School “Colorful New Year” Gift Tag that you can print then cut on the Cricut. Dare I tell you that it will take 10 minutes!?!
I don’t know about you, but I love Sharpie markers. Most people I meet feel the same way. My son starts Kindergarten soon and I wanted to give his teacher a little something (you know on top of the massive supply list that the school requires). That’s when it hit me that I should give her some Sharpie Markers! I didn’t just want to give her the markers I wanted to attach a cute Pinterest-worthy style tag onto the markers for her. Thanks to my Cricut Maker I was able to make it happen in under 10 minutes time!
If you own a Cricut machine and use Cricut Design Space than you are in luck my friends! I have a free file already created just for you.
Supply list for DIY Back-To-School “Colorful New Year” Gift Tag
- Cricut Maker
- “This Marks The Start Of A Colorful New Year” Cut-File in Cricut Design Space
- White or Cream colored Card stock
Once your in Design Space and you select “Make It” you will load 8 1/2 x 11 white card stock into your printer. If you’ve ever worked on a print-then-cut project you’ll know that it prompts you to print the file first then you remove it from the printer, and then load it onto the mat.
Once the tag is printed the Cricut Maker will prompt you to load the cardstock on to a mat. Don’t worry–that black line around the text is a guide for the machine.
This is what it will look like once it’s cut. Then you simply curve the mat to carefully peel the cardstock off the mat.
I let my son write “From: Ryder” on the back of the tag, so that she knew who it was from.
Let’s face it, meet the teacher can be pretty hectic and if every parent and their child shows up at the same time the likelihood of getting any real one on one time is slim. So it’s always best to put who it’s from in case the teacher doesn’t remember!
