personalize your school supplies with vinyl!!!!

this was a post i did last summer at expressions vinyl…but since we just went last night and stocked up on our school supplies (cause if you don’t do it early you will be left with slim pickins)
I thought it would perfect timing to make a reappearance here….

i was at walmart the other stocking up on school supplies…and my kids saw these cute tablets and started begging and pleading for them…but when you need 5 tablets you don’t want to be spending 2.47 when you get some plain ones for 17 cents.

so i told the kids i would fancy some up for them!
and that i did!

here are my daughters….

the peace sign image is from HERE
we covered one in zebra vinyl…

and added strips of vinyl cause we love rainbows!

i didn’t use the cameo except for the lettering…so you can totally do this without a cutter!

my son only needed two…

this one was made using printable vinyl you can go here to see the hows)

and these are mine..cause i’m a huge list maker…

for the polka dot one…

i use these cheap tablets for everything!

i also made one with some dry erase vinyl

super fun to doodle on with your teacher is boring you to death…

and you can almost always use the negative space to make it go further. (the chevron was leftover from another project!)

we also added our names to all our supplies…

and added some embellishments to these little tablets…

(the gun one is not for school..it’s my husbands!) i also had a bunch of vinyl scraps (and you KNOW you can’t throw anything away!) i just wrapped them around some pencils…

i did ┬ásplurge and buy this cute notebook for my new church calling…but i fancied it up…
when i was cutting all these little words i noticed it wasn’t cutting very cleanly..so i took my blade out and noticed…

just need to be cleaned out! (also when cutting small and precise make sure you slow it down!)

our bags are packed and ready to go!
