There are many different ways Canva and Wakelet can be used together. From sections to banners and cover images, Canva does it all. Here are some of the most popular and fun ways to have an app smashing experience with this duet :

  • Personalized Cover and Backgrounds :

Using Canva, we can create personalized backgrounds and cover images. This makes the collection more visual and interactive. Here’s an example of creating a lesson plan.

  • Section Headers

In a Wakelet collection we can create sections to organize all the resources. This is very useful when making a Lesson Plan, Book Review, Portfolio and many such different types of collections. To make it look more eye catching and visually captivating, canva headers can be used instead of usual text. Look at the comparison in the image and see how cool it looks!


  • Infographics

When making an informative collection, infographics using Canva can be added to the collection. This will not only help the viewer understand in a better way but, it will even look enticing. Rather than adding multiple text boxes in the collection, a summarized infographic can be used to make it all look organized. Check this collection out as an example: Halloween Special 🎃

  • Gallery / Albums

When you don’t know where to save all your memories at one place and share it with no storage issues, Wakelet is the best place for you.
