The team colors are red and black which explains my color choices:-) I used an svg file that I got from here but it isn't necessary to have an svg compatable machine to make this - simply use the template from splitcoaststampers resources. There is also a great tutorial there on how to put the project together as well as a gallery of ideas to help your creative juices!! I am going to show you a few pics to help you with the assembly process. I chose not to put a front pocet on my backpack as this is for a man and I didn't want to get too complicated or fancy with either of the projects.
|Here are my pieces after cutting and scoring.|
|The shiny sections are the orange sticky tape I used|
to glue the project together.
|The splitcoaststampers tutorial suggested 36 inches of ribbon but |
I only needed about 24 inches.
|I used self adhesive velcro dots to keep the top closed.|
|I took a 4.25" by 12" piece of black cardstock and scored it at |
4" and 2.5". I added white cardstock to the interior of the card.
The folded up card will fit into an A2 sized envelope.
|The backpack is cut from Doodlecharms.|
I am using this project to enter for the design team call at My Craft Spot. I have always enjoyed Kimberly's work and remember her from the old cricut message board and her generosity in sharing her files. I would love an opportunity to work with her!!
