Tea Party Designer Series Paper Makes a Cute Backpack

3-d mini-backpack with Tea Party designer series paperMy 4th-grader's teacher has a birthday today. Since a gift card is a great choice for the class to give her, but not very exciting, I decided to package it in a fun way. I have seen mini-backpacks before, but this is my first shot. Have to admit, I am pleased with the result.

  • tip: using Stampin' Up! designer series paper (this is Tea Party) helps create a coordinated project easily

  • almost amethyst cardstock is perfect with this paper
  • old olive ribbon in 5/8" grosgrain makes up the straps while 1/4" so saffron creates the loop on top

I'll be headed to the school shortly to deliver this and sing Happy Birthday.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
