No matter what school looks like this year, the kiddos still need some sort of school supplies, right? If schooling at home, plenty of organizational items are necessary. If attending school outside of home, it’s important for kiddos to have all of their items labeled this year. This means that Cricut crafters have no shortage of items to personalize with vinyl!
Personalizing items with iron-on vinyl and regular vinyl can be done with a Cricut Maker, a Cricut Explore Air machine, or a Cricut Joy. Be sure to have the appropriate StandardGrip Cutting Mat and Fine Point Blade. If using the Cricut Joy, it requires specific products designed for the Cricut Joy machine.
