Cricut smart vinyl tips for back to school

Whether you want to add a name or a unique design to your school water bottles, lunchboxes, notebooks, folders - anything you can think of to get you super organised and ready to tackle the new school year – Cricut and Big W have got you covered. #bigdaysathome

All you’ll need to get started is a quick BIG W trip or online shop.
Here's what you'll need:

A Cricut Joy
Cricut Smart Vinyl or Smart Label
Cricut Transfer Tape
Cricut Tool Kit
Lunchbox
Cricut Design Space App on a mobile device

Step 1: Open the Design Space App on your mobile device. You can either choose from thousands of pre-loaded designs, projects, fonts or images or upload your own.

Step 2: Simply click ‘make it’ follow the prompts and select your material (smart vinyl) and let the Cricut Joy get busy working its magic!

Step 3: When the Cricut Joy is finished cutting, simply unload the cut vinyl from the Cricut Joy and remove the excess vinyl with your weeding tool.

Step 4: Cut the transfer tape to size and apply to the cut vinyl decal and burnish with the burnishing tool on the front and back.

Step 5: Carefully peel back the transfer tape, (which should have the vinyl decal adhered) and position it on your Big W lunchbox (or another essential item). Use the burnishing tool to transfer and then carefully peel back the transfer tape to reveal the decal on your lunchbox.

And just like that, Cricut Joy has all your back to school essentials labelled, and you are ready to tackle Term 1 in style!
