Back to School Party Printables

Click the links below to download the free printable gift bags, and cupcake toppers, wrappers and invitation

I remember being very excited each year as summer finally wound down and school began again. A lot of things were new--teachers, clothes, books, and sometimes even friends. In that way, going back to school is like a fifth season for kids. So that's something to celebrate--whether at home or in the classroom.

I've wanted to create some 3D printables for back to school for a long time. When I saw this clip art by GiftSeasonStore, I knew the templates would practically design themselves. These owls are just so stinking cute!

Download Templates and Instructions

These .jpg templates are very easy to make, especially if you follow the step-by-step instructions included in the zip file.

Refer to #s 2-4 on this page if you need help downloading or opening the zip file, or accessing the images. You'll need this free Acrobat software to read the instructions unless you already have PDF reader software.

TIP: I strongly recommend using Glue Dots to create the gift bags. They will hold the bags together much better than glue, glue stick or tape.

There is also a free matching printable party invitation, which you can download below. That link will take you to my sister site,

The cupcake toppers come in four designs and so do the cupcake wrappers. The toppers are designed to mix and match and be used on toothpicks or adhered to the front of the wrappers. There are two bag designs, both of which coordinate with the other printables.

Credits: Thanks to GiftSeasonStore on Etsy for the totally adorable owl images used in these designs, to for the dotted overlay, and to Maree Truelove for the banner artwork. And a special thanks to Wendy Bird Designs for the gift bag template. I've used it in several of my printable designs and I just love it.

    Cute! This isn't the first Back to School post I've seen today and I can't quite wrap my head around the fact that we are getting close to that time again! Was summer really that short?
    Looks like a fun set of printables! Thanks for sharing with us at the #HomeMattersParty
