School is back in session and the ScanNCut is here to assist! Check out how to create a custom writing journal for those language arts classes and next, add some fun decals to personalize a lunchbox. Have a great school year!
For the Writing Journal, you will need:
- Brother vinyl, cardstock, roll feeder, ScanNCut, Auto Blade, Low-Tack mat, Drawing / pen tool, Brother felt-tip pens, double sided tape, notebook
1. Download “Notebook_Vinyl.fcm” to your machine.

For the Water Cycle Lunchbox Decals, you will need:
- Brother vinyl in assorted colors (White, Blue, Green, Orange, Gray/Silver), Roll Feeder, tin lunchbox, ScanNCut, Auto Blade, tin lunchbox (we used this one: measuring 8.65” x 6.75” x 3.9”)
1. Download “WaterCycle_White” to your machine.
2. Load the roll feeder with white vinyl.
3. Check the size of the design; make sure the width and height of the cut file matches the width and height of your lunchbox’s surface.
4. Cut out the design using the Auto Blade. Trim off the design from the vinyl roll and set aside.
5. Repeat steps 1-4 with the rest of the attached cut files, choosing your vinyl colors according to the cut file name.
6. Begin by applying the white vinyl rectangle to the surface of the lunchbox, smoothing out carefully to avoid air bubbles.
7. Begin laying out the water cycle design according to the cycle process (use this image for reference:) Make sure that all pieces are smoothed out and secure.
