Back to School with the Cricut Explore One®

The following is a guest post by our friends at Cricut.

There it is. That feeling. The feeling of fall, of school time, of playground kickball games and the smell of a brand new notebook. A new school year is here! It’s time to get back on a schedule and prep for the upcoming year. Whether you’re a teacher, mom, grandma or a student, the Cricut Explore One® is a great machine to help prepare you for the new school year. You can customize backpacks, create beautiful teacher gifts or even decorate an entire classroom with intricately cut designs.

Cricut Explore One

We have a classroom of inspiration (literally!) to show you some amazing things you can make with the Cricut Explore One®. The Cricut® project designers turned a boring teacher’s desk into a fun and inviting workspace with three important elements: color, educational tools and practicality.

To add a pop of color, the designers made bold typography prints from the bright vinyl sampler and the new Mondo Fonts digital cartridge to hang on the wall behind the desk. We also strung a few banners made with the Decorate! Celebrate! digital cartridge.


For the teacher’s desk, we made her a bouquet of paper sunflowers from the 3D Floral Home Décor digital cartridge that will brighten the space all year!


With the variety of materials and images available in the custom library, you can create practical and educational elements. The window clock display is a great interactive project for the classroom or to use at home. Kids can spend hours changing the time over and over again!


What better way to update and customize classroom assignments than with Cricut® Dry Erase vinyl! We created a “Word of the Day” wall hanging and a word bubble “This Week” list for the chalkboard.


Of course you can’t forget teacher appreciation! With the Cricut Explore One®, it’s your chance to show your child’s teacher how much you appreciate them. Paper boxes filled with treats or even a trendy pop-up card is sure to impress. The Pretty Packages digital cartridge and Simple Pop-Up Cards digital cartridge allow you to make unique customized gifts!



But don’t forget about your kids! Send them back to school in style with personalized gear! The Mondo Font digital cartridge has so many good fonts to choose from and looks great in our new Cricut Neon Iron-on.




Each of these projects can be found in the Make It Now section of Cricut Design Space. Don’t stress out about getting ready for school this year! Make your Cricut Explore One® do all the heavy lifting instead!
