DIY "Frozen" Personalized School Labels #EverydaySharpie #PMedia #ad @Sharpie

I finally received Kenzie's school supply list a little over a week ago so I was scrambling to find all the requested items. Her school requires that all items sent are labeled with her name. Since she loves Frozen, I decided to pick up some Sharpie Pens at Walgreens and make personalized school labels for her supplies. Who doesn't love a Sharpie?



I was excited to try the Sharpie Pens which have the same bold and smooth writing as the marker but doesn't bleed through paper. The brushed stainless steel body makes it look and feel like a refillable premium pen that I can carry around in my purse. It was time to put these to the test and whip out some labels for Kenzie.

PRINT DIRECTIONS


Materials
  • Adhesive vinyl, foil or paper 
  • Sharpie Stainless Steel Pen
  • Sharpie Pen Grip Assisted
  • Scissors and/or Cutting Machine (I used the Silhouette Portrait)

Directions
  1. Cut out a sheet of 8.5 x11 adhesive paper. I started with vinyl but switched to the foil because Kenzie said she liked the "shiny" paper. 
  2. Use this template I've created for the labels and either use a cutting machine or scissors to cut out the labels.
  3. Using a black Sharpie Pen, write your child's name on each label. This takes patience and a steady hand if you like a uniform look. Good thing I had my perfectionist friends over for a BBQ on label making day and they gave me a helping hand! 
  4. Find a snowflake design you like and use the blue Sharpie pen to draw it next to your child's name. You can freehand your own snowflake but since my drawing skills are not that great, I just found one I liked and copied it.
  5. After you've completed as many labels as you need, just peel off and stick to your child's school supplies!
  6. These are also great as party favors or even just because for friends who come by to play. After Kenzie's friend saw these labels, she requested some of her own. 
I'm thinking of making "Olaf" personalized labels for Kenzie's birthday party goody bags!


Do you have to label everything for your child's school? Have you tried making your own labels?
