School is about to begin which means we parents will be wanting to document the occasion. Today I’m sharing a first day of school flag that is the perfect prop for those back to school pictures. Also, this post is part of the Team Creative Crafts monthly blog hop. Make sure to stick around until the end to see many more back to school ideas.

Before we jump into the first day of school post let me share the supplies that I used. Now let me say that I did use my Cricut Maker for ease with this project. That’s one of the best things about the Cricut machines that they make many projects so much more easier. But if you don’t have one you can still easily achieve this first day of school flag.
First day of school flag supplies:
- Cricut Maker
- Cricut felt
- Cricut fabric mat
- Dowel stick
- Hot glue gun
- 3d foam stickers
Through Cricut design space I typed out “first day of” and added an offset.
Then I used the print then cut feature and had my Cricut Maker cut it out.
Next I used 3d stickers on the back of the phrase.
I used my fabric mat for the felt pieces I needed to cut.
Then I again had my Cricut Maker cut out the pieces I needed (flag and letters for the word school). The reason I did print then cut for the first phrase was to eliminate cutting and gluing many little letters.
Next I hot glued the pieces together. Even the one with 3d stickers to add more height.
My final steps were to hot glue the flag to a dowel and add some ribbon. I stuck with the primary colors for my ribbon choice.
I hope this inspired you to create your own first day of school flag to use in your phtots. Happy crafting!!!
