3 crafty back-to-college projects with Cricut

Impress all your colleagues with decked out school supplies.

Sending your college-age kid back to campus this September, or returning to school yourself?

It’s time to prep by getting crafty with Cricut, a digital cutting machine designed to help you create custom cards, pro-looking labels, personalized decals and more at home.

With a variety of machines to choose from, these babies can cut paper, felt, vinyl, fabric and other materials such as leather, matboard and even wood, to create school supplies and dorm decor like no other.

Here are three of our favourite DIY back-to-school projects perfect for campus.


Organize everything with a DIY study planner. Looking to take your studying game up a notch this semester? Avid Cricuter @StudyWithAra created this DIY study planner that utilizes the popular South Korean 10-minute planner system using her Cricut Joy and Smart Removable Vinyl. Find the full tutorial on how to make it online.


Get personal with custom notebooks. 

Make any standard spiral notebook the envy of all your classmates!

From adding your name or monogram to getting cheeky with your favourite design (you can literally upload any photo into the free Design Space software), the possibilities are really endless.

These sunny weather-inspired decals were cut on the Cricut Joy using Smart Removable Vinyl, which comes in a variety of colours to match every back-to-school vibe.


Double trouble: wine tumbler and coffee mug duo. 

Speaking of cheeky projects, this mug and tumbler set makes the perfect pair for pre- and post-school day activities. Swapping the font colours to match the hues of your desired drinkware is a simple and quick way to add your own touch to this design.

You can also add the vinyl slogan to glass or plastic wares, making this an incredibly customizable project suited to any beloved beverage.
