These free crayon monogram and crayon box SVGs are great for Cricut, Silhouette, or any other cutting machine crafts.
With school coming up faster than we think, I decided to create this free crayon SVG set. This is perfect to make fun back to school Cricut classroom decor. Of course, teachers can use the crayon templates to make student name cards. They also work great for a vocabulary word wall.

You can also use your Cricut for the classroom to cut out the apple template and pencil SVGs. These look great to accent any chalk board, white board, or teacher’s desk. In this post, I’ll go through different projects and activities for this free crayon SVG set. Then, I’ll explain how to turn any image into an SVG template.

Crayon Foldable Accordion
First, you can use these Cricut crayon SVG templates free to make a foldable accordion card. I love making this craft with my kids for Teacher Appreciation Week. It’s a great way to show thanks for any teacher.
To get started, you can download the crayon templates for free from my Resource Library. To gain access, sign up for my newsletter. Then, you can upload the SVGs to the Cricut Design Space. For this project, I like to use a variety of colored cardstock to get the feel of a whole crayon box. Of course, you can also alternate a few colors to create a fun pattern as well.
Once you cut your crayon SVG free with your Cricut, you can fold the darker crayon background back and forth to create the accordion effect. Then, paste your thank you letters into the middle of each crayon. If you’re looking for a fun way to say happy birthday to a teacher, you can adjust the template to make it longer as well.
Cricut Crayon Name Tags
In addition, you can also use the crayon teacher SVG bundle to create fun name tags for you or your students. Personally, I think this is easiest to do with crayon monogram SVG, since it has a convenient place to print or write names. This is great for elementary school classrooms as students learn each other’s names in the first week of school.

How to turn any image into an SVG template?
Interested in learning the easiest way to make your own SVG?
Here’s a quick tutorial on how to turn any image into an SVG format image without having to use any complicated graphics editing software.
First, a quick primer on what is an SVG… SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics. It is a way to store digital information about an image. Most images you see on the web and other digital devices use a bitmap or pixel-based image storage format. In other words, the image is captured with information about each dot in the image.
SVG format images are part of a category of images that are vector-based. Vector-based images store the image as a series of paths and nodes. Most cutting machines like the Cricut and Silhouette use SVG format images because the blade on the machine needs to know what direction (or path) to cut.
To turn a bitmap-based image into a vector-based image, you need special conversion software tools. This is an algorithm tricky conversion because there are lots of different ways to do it with varying degrees in quality. Most graphic editing software like Adobe Illustration make you manually decide on those conversion settings which makes it really difficult to use if you’re not already familiar with Illustrator.
I use a software tool called Vector Magic. With Vector Magic, you just upload your image (you can even copy and paste it in) and it automatically just converts to an SVG format for you. You can make editorial adjustments afterward if you’d like but there is a baseline conversion ready to go if that’s good enough.
Here’s an image for you to give it a try yourself. It’s a bunch of cute animal drawings I did the other day. I just took a picture of it with my phone. Try copy and paste this image into the Vector Magic interface. (Right-click on the image below, select “copy”, then head over to Vector Magic and past it into the window or just hit Ctrl+V)
After you pasted your image into the Vector Magic window, it will automatically start to convert your image:
This will take a few seconds. When the process is complete, you will see the vectorized SVG image on the right with the original on the left.
If you don’t like the automated conversion, there are a number of different adjustments you can make from the right tool panel.
After making adjustments, you can download your converted image as an SVG and then upload it to your cutting machine interface like Cricut Design Space below:
