Back to School Backpack


I saw this challenge in the Demo Only forums on SCS - took a look at the pattern found here and here and went to work creating my backpack. Luckily for me - I had a diecut box for the bottom - I had bought them as a bulk buy from SU, and hadn't used all of them.

To create the flaps, I measured how far down I wanted it to go cut my card stock, then used my coluzzle. The little box pouch that I added is 2" x 2-1/8" after assembled.

I used my JustRite Small Letter Set and monograms to create my backpack tag , punched it with the 1-1/4", 1" and 3/4" circles - encased it in some Amuse Creative Candy. It's held on to my ribbon with some hardware from Tim Holtz. I thought the Jumbo Eyelets made great flap embellishments.

Stamps - JustRite Small Letter Set and monograms
Ink - Chocolate Chip
Card Stock - Riding Hood Red, Holiday Treasurers DSP
Other - 5/8" Chocolate Grosgrain, Jumbo Eyelets, Sticky Strip, Coluzzle, Die Cut Box, Crop-a-dile, Cutter Kit, Amuse Creative Candy, 1/16" circle punch, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, Hardware
