Notebook Paper Inspired Teacher Book Bag Gift

Sharing is caring!

Create a Notebook Paper Inspired Book Bag for your favorite Teacher in just about 30 minutes. With just three supplies, plus a ruler and an iron, make a cute tote bag personalized with your Teacher's name.

Start with a plain canvas tote bag – mine is 16″ square from Canvas Corp Brands.

Measure and draw horizontal lines across the width with a pencil – I started 3″ from the top with the lines in 1″ increments.

Mark two vertical margin lines at 1/4″ apart, 2″ in from the left side. To make the binder holes on the left, draw a small circle at the first line, a middle line, and the last line.

Trace over all the pencil marks with fine-point permanent markers – red for the margin lines, blue for the writing lines, and black for the binder holes.
Spell out your favorite teacher's name with Joy iron-on embroidered letters. Iron them on according to the package directions. I like to use a flat craft iron without steam holes for better adhesion.
Fill your Teacher Appreciation Book Bag with great BOOKS (of course) and give it to that special teacher!
