Chaos Coordinator Teacher Tote Bag with FREE Cricut Cut File! #CricutMade

When it comes to chaos, no one handles it better than teachers. Whenever I am helping my husband in the classroom, I am always amazed at the way he can motivate a room full of tiny people to learn something new. I certainly can't do that job, so instead I like to put gifts together for teachers to remind them that they are doing amazing things by teaching these kids.

This Chaos Coordinator Teacher Tote Bag is so easy to make using the Cricut, and is sure to bring a smile to your teacher's face.

I found this adorable tote bag in the dollar spot at Target. If you can't find this one, you could easily DIY the paper lines to the front of a blank canvas tote bag by using some fabric markers and a ruler.

Open the Chaos Coordinator cut file in Design Space (free with Cricut Access*) and click "Customize" to adjust image size, or click "Make It" to go straight to cutting the iron-on vinyl with your Cricut machine. Make sure to mirror the image before you cut!!

"Weed" the excess vinyl by removing all of the parts that don't belong in the design. I usually start with the outer edges first by peeling away at the corner and working my way around the design. Then I use a weeding tool to remove smaller pieces of the design, like the insides of letters.

Heat up your Cricut EasyPress. Each kind of iron-on vinyl has a different heat/time setting for different materials, so be sure to check the recommended EasyPress settings for best results.

Once the EasyPress is up to temperature, place your bag on the EasyPress Mat and preheat the area for 5-10 seconds. Lay the vinyl down on the bag with the clear carrier sheet on top. Set the EasyPress over the vinyl and press the green "C" button. Hold firmly in place while the timer counts down. Turn the bag over and press the EasyPress firmly again for 15 seconds.

Let the bag cool for a minute or two, then carefully peel away the carrier sheet. The vinyl should be completely stuck on the bag. If you have any edges peeling up, lay the carrier sheet back down and press again with the EasyPress.

Now the bag is ready for you to give to your favorite teacher, AKA "Chaos Coordinator"! Fill the tote bag up with school supplies for the classroom, the teacher's favorite treats, or take it a step further and fill it to the top with cash! No matter what you do, it is sure to bring a smile to your teacher's face.
