Get a collection of FREE printable first day of school signs, tags, and lunch box notes. Two patterns – stripes in blue and tribal in pink!
Are your littles ready to go back to school? My niece is about to enter school for the first time, and I have tons of friends with kids starting just about every grade.
With so many people in my life celebrating back to school, I decided to offer a free packet of first day of school signs, lunch box notes, and tags for you to use. And I'm going to show you how to customize them using Fiskars products!
Fiskars is probably best known for their scissors, but they have a lot of other products as well. I absolutely LOVE their punches and have an entire bin of them!
Name a cool Fiskars punch and I'm sure I have in my collection. And when it comes to Fiskars cutting tools, I'm covered there too.
Free First Day of School Signs
Since we're doing a kids' project today, did you realize they have four types of scissors to cover kids for all ages? Here's their collection (pictured above from left to right):
- Preschool Scissors – ages 3+. Features blunt-tip blades and spring action blades to teach proper motion
- Kids Scissors, 5″ – ages 4+. Kids will love the larger finger loops for comfort. These are designed to cut all classroom materials and also have blunt tips (though they are a little more pointed).
- Big Kids Scissors, 6″ – ages 8+. These longer blades are perfect for more advanced projects, and the larger finger loops are perfect for growing hands.
- Student Scissors, 7″ – ages 12+. Full-sized blades with pointed tips. Finger loops are comfortable and offer a natural fit.
So your kids can start using Fiskars in preschool and continue for the rest of their lives just as I did! Now here's how I used my Fiskars products to customize these first day of school signs, notes, and tags.
For the larger grade signs, you'll need scissors, the Fiskars punch of your choice, extra scrapbook paper, and glue dots. Have your child cut out the sign themselves with scissors.
Grab your Fiskars punch – I love the star. This is one of my favorites for all sorts of projects, not just kid related!
Place your scrapbook paper inside the punch. Scraps are perfect for this. Press down firmly.
Open the little trap door on the back, which is a feature I love, and pull out your paper shape!
Attach to your sign using glue dots. It's so fun to let your child customize their own signs!
Another fun option for customization is the backpack tags! Kids will love this one.
For this project, I used the heart punch. What I love about this heart is it's small and very versatile. You'll just find yourself punching out tons of hearts. Like this:
You're going to go crazy – I promise!
While you are going crazy punching hearts, let your child cut out the ID tags with their Fiskars scissors.
Then add embellishments to the tag – and buttons – with glue dots! To answer your question, yes, the glue dots will hold the buttons. Having said that, if you want a bit of a tougher tag, glue the buttons down with craft glue! Then use baker's twine to tie the tag to your child's backpack!
