About a week ago I mentioned I was going to be doing a craft fair on Nov 1st (my first one ever!) and I’m a bit nervous and excited all rolled into one! I was brainstorming with my mom on the phone last night and she suggested I make something school themed for teachers. After I hung up with mom, I went onto Splitcoast to see what I could find. I found the *cutest* backpacks made out of paper and after a bit of searching found an awesome video tutorial and a pdf to print out that goes along with it. I whipped one up last night in about 10 minutes while following the tutorial and this is how it turned out! I went out to Michael’s this morning to purchase some velcro to keep the flaps shut and here is my final product! I just *love* these. Some ideas to put in them are candy, 3×3 note cards, maybe some lotion? The possibilities are endless! Here is a link to the tutorial and a link to the pdf file. Tutorial is by Tracy Greven.

Stamps: none
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Bella Rose dp
