Back to school inspiration

Getting the kids excited to go back to school after a long break can be hard. This is why we have come up with 10 fun vinyl projects that won't cost the Earth, which will make their first day back a little special!

Whether it's a name tag in clothing or a cute unicorn themed lunch box, there's something for everyone.

All you need is our iron-on vinyl, greaseproof paper and an iron or heat press. Our vinyls can be hand cut or used on a wide range of cutting machines including Silhouette, Cricut and Brother ScanNCut.

Have a look at our top 10 inspiring projects...

  1. School rucksack - HappyFlex Stretch Light Green

Animal lovers will adore this simple name cut into a shape. It's a simple way to add to an old or new bag making it easier to find amongst the many piles of school bags.

2. Lunch box - HappyGlitter Rose Gold & HappyFashion Sparkle Silver

Add some sparkle with a fun unicorn vinyl design on a plain or simple patterned lunch box. It will definitely add a little magic to their day!

3. Clothing initials- HappyFlex White

Simple initials added to labels or around the neckline of clothing will help save the hassle of clothing wondering to lost property.

4. Draw string bags- HappyFlex Grey, HappyFlock Yellow & White

Cotton PE kits and school bags will work perfectly for an adventurous design. Let the kids hand cut their own design and collage some shapes together for a fun activity.

6. Craft bags- HappyFlex Black, HappyFlock Pastel Pink & HappyGlitter Green

Have a lot of small items to take to school such as maths kits and paint brushes? A large craft bag will keep it all in one place and a fun slogan or name can be added in a chosen vinyl effect.

7. Pencil pots- HappyFlex Yellow, Pink, White & Turquoise

Pencil pots are a handy one for when the kids are returning home in the evening. You can finally have a fun way of keeping things tidy and make some space for dinner.

8. Pencil cases- HappyFlex White & HappyFlock Aqua

A personalised pencil case is a keeper. We added a favourite home village boat to this one and incorporated it into the name. It adds something a little special to keep the children interested in using their stationery.

9. Hair accessories- HappyGlitter Pale Yellow & Beach Blue

Hair scrunchies are always handy and cute to match with the school uniform. We added some glitz with some hole punched stars in our favourite colour combination. Check out our tutorial video for our scrunchie here.

10. Notebooks- HappyGlitter Pale Yellow, HappyFlock Signal Red, HappyFlex Black

A little notebook is perfect to write the first day notes in! Why not add some fun vinyl textures to create something personal and stylish?

Hopefully we have inspired you to get crafting whether it's with the kids or for a fun evening of creating. We would love to see what you are creating for back to school, make sure you tag us in your photos so we can see!
