We all know that the 2020-2021 school year could use all the magic in the world! I decided to start by adding some Disney magic to our first day of school flags with Mickey and Minnie Mouse! This is a simple and fun way to add a personal touch and get creative for the famous first day of school photos!
To make these signs you will need a 12 inch 1/4 wooden dowel, ribbon of your choice, a Mickey embellishment, and card stock.
First I purchased a digital copy of the pennants from Whimsical Darlings Co on ETSY. The pack was $10 dollars and included preschool through 6th grade first day of school files. They are made to be printed on 8.5 x 11 cardstock. I highly recommend using cardstock so they are more durable.
Next, I hot glued the flag to the wooden dowel. There is a flap that will easily wrap around it. After that, I took my ribbon in groups of 3 pieces at a time and tied them to the base. I found if I did more than this it becomes bulky and the Mickey embellishment did not sit right.
Lastly, I used my circuit to make the Mickey and Minnie. They are about 3 inches wide and I used glitter black cardstock for some extra magic! I hot glued them over the ribbon knots and the flags were complete!
I love the idea of these first day of school signs. Not only are they a simple way to bring Disney magic to the first day of school but they are so easy to personalize! My kids picked out the color ribbon they wanted and I even added the crown to Minnie for my princess loving daughter!
Hope this Mickey and Minnie adds a bit of magic to the start of your child's 2020-2021 school year!
