Back to School Inspirational Canvas Prints {free printables}

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Astrobrights Papers by Neenah Paper for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


I was lucky enough to receive some AstroBrights papers in the mail the other week and thought it would be great to make some Canvas Prints to inspire the kiddo as she heads back to school.

I gathered my supplies:

  • AstroBrights neon paper
  • Mod Podge
  • 8×10 inch canvas boards
  • Paint brushes or foam brushes
  • Scissors or exacto knife

Did you know that AstroBrights comes in 23 bright colors? They are extremely vibrant and fantastic quality that can be used for tons of projects, including flyers, brochures, invitations and even crafts.

I created some inspirational quote printables to print out on the AstroBrights paper. The best part? You’re only using black ink from your printer for this craft!

Print the free printables on the Astrobrights paper, but do not trim out. Coat your 8×10 inch canvas boards in Mod Podge and center the printable on the board.

With the little bit of overlap, trim the corners back so you can fold around the back of the board. This way you’ll have clean edges when the project is complete.

Put an extra coat of Mod Podge across the front of the canvas for a protective top coat.

And that’s it! You have some great inspirational prints to help your kiddos during those long and tough school days. I put these in my kid’s homework area. You can also frame in a 8×10 inch frame if preferred.

    These are wonderful, Erin! I love all the great fonts you used to create your printables, and all three would be perfect in a classroom or in a home. Thank you so much for sharing them!

    Erin, I love these printables! Next month once we get back from vacation we are going to tackle our guest room and make a desk and an area for Jon to run his business out of (the living room just isn’t working out well). I might just have to use these printables to place near his desk! I love them!
