DIY Backpack Labels for School or DaycareAugust 22, 2015
I have another simple Back-to-School idea for you all today. At Sophia’s school, we have to make sure that all her belongings are labelled. It’s somewhat tedious, but the reason behind it makes sense- the teachers can’t be expected to remember who brings what into the classroom. So we have resorted to creating labels for backpacks, lunch bags, clothing, bottles, and so on. I’ve written about one way I’ve made DIY Daycare Labels in the past, and today I’m sharing with you another (really) simple tutorial!
All you need for this project is one of those ID badges. I picked mine up from the Dollar Tree, but you can find these at many different stores: Walmart, Target, drugstores, office supply stores, etc. And then I made a simple printable to fit inside this label! I even made a blank one for my lovely readers to print out and fill in with your kids’ names! Keep reading for the details!

So I first measured the opening in the ID badge. Mine came out to be 2.25″ x 3.25″. Obviously, if your ID badge is a drastically different size, you won’t be able to use this same printable.
Then I printed out the file TWICE (one for each side of the badge).

Next, I simple trimmed the print-out to remove the excess white edges. I then slipped them inside the badges!
Voila! I simply hooked it into the loop at the top of the backpack. And I don’t have to worry about my label falling apart on a rainy day. Nor did I have to spend $30+ for a custom label product! Love saving some money!
