Cricut Project for Teachers

3 Step Cricut Project for Teachers

I’ve got a Cricut project for teachers to keep your classroom better organized! Battling clutter in a primary classroom can be challenging. I’ve made some mistakes along the way, but I’ve got a Cricut project that can help you keep those little things from becoming a big problem!

This was my mistake…

When kids found something little on the floor, like a Lego or rubber band, I would say, “Please place it by my computer.” This may seem harmless, but by the end of the day, I had a whole collection of things scattered on my table.

Now we have solved our problem!

These magnetic baskets are perfect for dropping in small items that are found during the day. At recess or dismissal, one or two students get the coveted job of returning those little goodies to their proper homes.

The baskets came as a set from Amazon so I also made a matching basket for books that need a little TLC. You can make your own set of baskets in just 3 simple steps! I used my Cricut Maker for this project. 

Step 1

Get my “Fix Me and You Found Me Basket Labels” design in Cricut Design Space and then click Make It.

Step 2

Choose any color of permanent vinyl and cut two pieces for your project. I chose to use the same color for both baskets, but you could pick a different color for each basket if you like.  Remove the plastic cover from your cutting mat and lay one piece vinyl down flat on the mat. Press Make It. This is when the magic happens! Just wait and watch as your design is perfectly cut! Peel off your vinyl and then repeat for the second design.

Step 3

Remove or “weed” the excess vinyl from your designs using the Cricut Weeder. Don’t forget the little circles on the band-aid or the inside of your letters. 

Lay the sticky side of the transfer tape over your design to lift it off the backing.  Transfer the design onto your baskets. Use a Cricut Scraper to make sure your design is secure before slowly peeling back the transfer tape.

Now your baskets are ready for your classroom! Are you ready to get started? I look forward to hearing how you are using Cricut in your classroom too!
