I went to Splitcoaststampers and printed out the tutorial and the patterns by Mary Arima. I cut out the patterns and then traced them out onto a double sided piece of 12" x 12" patterned paper. I actually made a backpack following the directions and patterns that Mary came up with and it just turned out super cute. However, I thought I would like the front pocket to be a bit smaller than the pattern that Mary made so I made my own pattern for those pieces on this project.
I love how this turned out and I am sure my daughter's teacher is going to love getting it. It is the perfect size to put in a gift card or some candy or even a pack of crayons. Thanks for looking today.
Until next time...happy scrapping!
