Back to School Student Gifts


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


As so many of us are starting the year differently, I wanted to give an option that was easy to give out no matter the way you were starting. I for one am starting online, but still wanted to give them something that was personal! I decided to make a little letter to send out, along with 2 homemade stickers so they could still rep our school and classroom!


What you will need!

+ Cricut Printable sticker paper

+ Printer with Ink

+ Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore

+ Cardstock Paper (for card)

  1. I designed the stickers how I wanted them in PowerPoint. Make sure to group all items together, and then save as an image!

  2. I then sent the image to my iPad so that I could add a white border around my text. I added the picture to my procreate app and just drew a white border around it. You can easily do this step in PowerPoint too by putting a white shape behind all your text/images.

  3. Upload your image(s) to Cricut Design Space. You do this by starting a new project, clicking the upload image button, and dragging your image into the box. I usually choose simple and make sure to save as a print and cut image!

  4. Once it is uploaded you can add them to the design space. I like to duplicate as many as I can that can fit on a page to save room! *pro tip play around with adding a lot, tapping control A and choosing flatten. This allows you to fit the most amount of stickers on a page! I like to make my stickers about 3 in, it's just big enough but not too big

  5. You will then click make it, it should take you to a page with your images on it with a black square around them.

  6. Click continue and then click send to the printer. I like to tap the add bleed off! Adding the bleed just makes the image look not as clear. Make sure your sticker paper is loaded into your printer.

  7. After your image has been printed on the sticker paper, load the paper onto your Cricut mat, and load it into your machine.

  8. I like to choose the material as bonded fabric (heavy) because then the Cricut will actually cut the entire sticker out! *if you want to make a sticker page for your students just choose the sticker paper option.

  9. Your Cricut will now use that black border to gauge where to cut out your sticker. Once it is finished I just feel the paper off and the stickers pop right out!

  10. I actually repeated this process for the cards I made for students except I printed them on cardstock. I saved my PowerPoint as an image, uploaded to Cricut Design Space and chose the print then cut setting. I printed out my cards, and then Cricut cut them for me! The only thing left now is to stuff them in the envelopes I got and send them on their way!


I suggest printing the student's addresses on label paper so you don't have to handwrite :) Your students will be so excited to see a little surprise in the mail, especially if you have to start virtually as we do!
