Free Printable Coloring Bookmarks for Back to School

Hi I’m Cindy from Skip to My Lou. It is time to head back to school and we are ready to bling out our school supplies! My daughter loves Sharpie markers to embellish all her things. There is no mistaking her supplies!Coloring Bookmarks + Sharpie

She is also a huge fan of coloring. The Sharpie fine point markers are perfect for helping her make bright vibrant creations. I decided something she could color for back to school would be a perfect way to get her excited and prepared.

DIY Sharpie Clipboard for Teachers

Hello! I’m Nikkala from The Crafting Chicks. We’ve hit the mid-way point of summer at our house. Which means it is time to start wrapping up our summer bucket list and start thinking about back-to-school shopping and haircuts for my very shaggy boys. Teachers are also gearing up to head back to school, so with Sharpie® I’ve created a clipboard to get them excited for the next year.

DIY Teacher Clipboard

We’ll be creating a notebook paper inspired clipboard. I love wandering the school supply aisles; looking at the new products and the tried and true ones that we all used as children and now get to buy for our children.

Start with a white clipboard.

MAKER Tip: Washi tape is the perfect thickness for spacing, so instead of measuring and marking both sides of the clipboard (to get those lines straight) I eyeballed it with washi tape. Do whichever is easiest for you.

Use a Sharpie marker to draw the horizontal lines.  Sharpie has so many color options, choose whichever color you can’t live with out! I used the metallic bronze color. I love the richness it brings to a plain clipboard.

Remove the tape and add more on the side to create the vertical lines running down the side of the clipboard like notebook paper.

 To complete the clipboard, I added motivational scrapbook paper to get our teachers amped up for another year of molding minds of children! Thank you teachers!
