We have always loved using vinyl for various DIY projects. It is great for customizing serving trays, adding unique designs to votives, and creating thoughtful gifts. We are blessed with our Cricut cutting machine and the crafting opportunities it creates. As much as we have used adhesive vinyl for projects, we have never played around with printable vinyl. This was our first time using printable vinyl, and we were beyond impressed by how well it worked for our kitty themed back to school labels!
This set of back to school labels features the same kitty illustrations as our shrinky dink name tags. I love using printable vinyl for back to school labels because it is more water-resistant than regular label paper and it is easier to remove. It can also be very forgiving. If you stick it onto your bottle or binder, it is very easy to peel off and adjust the placement if you accidentally stick it on crooked. To use these back to school labels, download the PDF below. You can customize the names on the labels by downloading and installing the free font Slaberlin. Once your labels are edited, place the printable vinyl into your inkjet printer. Find the exact printable vinyl we used in the Shop this Project section! We popped our vinyl into our Canon PIXMA MG7720 Wireless Photo All-in-One Printer and trimmed them with a pair of household scissors.
You can use these labels to organize school supplies, decorate notebooks, customize water bottles and so much more. We even added a link to those cute colorful water bottles in the Shop this Project section. Check out our DIY kids pencil pouches to pair with your school supply collection, and stay tuned for our monster back to school labels that match this set! We will also be sharing some adorable DIY monster backpacks that your little ones will love.
Because we love our Canon inkjet so much (and not only because it is gold!), we wanted to give you a chance to grab one for yourself. We are having a giveaway to receive a gold machine just like ours! Enter the giveaway below until Friday, August 19th at 11:59pm for a chance to win. Enjoy! ~ Lia
