This week we got our inspiration from designers Cupcake Cutiees using School Paper Pack and Kelly Medina using Back to School Days Pop over to MyGrafico and see all the Back To School goodies.
I decided this Back To School Challenge was perfect for a backpack. Splitcoaststampers has had tutorial for a cute backpack pack for a quite awhile. I always wanted to try it however when I looked at the tutorial a bit closer I realized that the finished project is quite small only about 4 inches high or so when finished. I wanted to be able to put somethings in my finished backpack so instead I decided to come up with my own version of the backpack. My backpack as shown here is about 7 inches high, 5 inches wide and 2.5 inches deep. My design also allows me to make it a bit bigger at about 8.75 inchs tall if I choose to I used my SCAL enabled Cricut to cut out the pattern after I drew it in my vector program. I used the School Paper Pack Apple Papers for the flaps and Back to School Days school pencils to help decorate it. All the apple die cuts are from Cricut Cartridge Doodle Charms. I love that apple.
I took some apple grosgrain ribbon and used if for the backpack straps.
