To some, this post may seem like it's here a little prematurely, but I was surprised to hear some of my friends' kids have already returned to school! What's up with that? It seems like it's happening earlier and earlier every year. Well, never fear, we have some free SVG design downloads for you to celebrate another summer done and gone. Kick your kids out the door and get to crafting. For August, Aaron has created:

  • photo prop design - this is great for your back to school pictures.
  • Fun phrases - get the perfect back to school phrase for your projects.
  • And, a T-shirt design - your kid will love his/her custom-made back-to-school tee.
  • And we've also included an SVG for last year's most popular download.

For those who don't know, you have to use these SVG files with electronic cutting machines. All you have to do is select the image that you want to cut, and then watch as the machine does all the work for you. Now, to the projects:

Back to School SVG Projects

first day of school photo prop project concept

This is called the First Day of School Photo Prop, and as you can see, it's the perfect way to document the occasion. Use colored cardstock to cut out all the layers, then piece them together with quality craft glue.

teacher appreciation phrases project concept

This is the Teacher Appreciation Phrases, and you can put these on a gallery print and gift it to your teacher, or use it in some other creative way.

where the adventure begins t-shirt project concept

And last but not least, this is the Where the Adventure Begins T-shirt. You can change things around to reflect your kid's grade. This kind of project requires specialty material, specifically heat transfer vinyl. To ensure a precise and quick project, we highly recommend the use of an EasyPress machine. The alternative is to use a household iron for the transfer process. If you have interest in our free releases from past years, those downloads are still available:
