I made this paper back pack a few weeks ago for the technique challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Although I am quite pleased with the results, I must admit it was the hardest paper crafting project I have done. It was not the directions, they were very well done, it was just me. The construction was probably a little too complicated for my totally left side brain. If you'd like to give it a try, there is a nice photograph tutorial on Splitcoaststampers. Maybe you'll find it easier to do than I did. LOL!
Anyway, onto my project. The base is constructed of white card stock of which I printed and cut out the pattern. I then covered it with designer paper from DCWV 'The Grade School Stack'. I then printed out the flaps and pockets on Yo Yo Yellow and Real Red card stack, and cut those out. The image is called 'Susie Squirrel at School' and is by Digital Stamp Oasis. If you'd like to buy this image, simply click on my Digital Stamp Oasis Blinkie in my sidebar and it will take you to the etsy store. I colored the image with Copic Markers. The sentiment is just a portion of the DCWV designer paper that I cut out. Here is what the back of the back pack looks like. The ribbon is shaped to look like the straps of an actual back pack.
