Back to School with Cricut in the Classroom


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cricut for Cricut. All opinions are 100% mine.

This back to school season is unlike anything we've ever seen before. With social distancing guidelines in place, I knew I needed to change how I handle classroom supplies. I usually do "community" supplies, but I want to make sure I'm keeping my students as safe and healthy as I can once they return to the classroom, so this year, I made bags of supplies for each student to use while they are in my classroom.

My classroom theme is all about COFFEE this year, so I knew I wanted some way to decorate the bags that incorporated my theme. I designed this coffee cup graphic in Cricut Design Space using their images and fonts. No scrambling around, searching for SVGs. I could make exactly what I needed right in Cricut! I arranged them in a group of four so I could cut four at once on my Cricut Maker, saving time and vinyl.

A tip for weeding: use TWEEZERS to get all the long, little pieces. It will make your life so much easier!

I used the Cricut Heat Guide to make sure I heated the Easy Press to the right time and temperature settings for my material and got to work. The Easy Press made attaching all of the decals quick and easy, and I know they'll last.

Once my bags were ready, I filled them with two pens and pencils, a dry erase board with a marker and an eraser, a clipboard, and a binder with notebook paper. My plan is to hang them on my classroom wall with command hooks so the kids can come in, grab their bag, and get ready. At the end of the class, they'll put their supplies back in the bag and replace them on the hooks.

I am excited to have these bags for my students, and I'm excited to have been able to decorate them with my Cricut! How are you preparing for back to school?


  1. In this crisis education have become a challenge for students. But now schools are opening again by following all the guidelines and protocols. For students' safety it is important. As a teacher I hope all the schools will help to keep all the students safe and secure. Schools can manage Covid-19 challenges in education. Teachers can play important role for it.

  2. I love the fact that each kiddo will have their own supplies. I teach special ed. so my class numbers are low and I'll be able to do this without a problem. I've had a Star Wars theme for the last 3 years and I think it's time to change things up a bit! Loving the coffee theme. Can you post pics of your room please??
