Backpack card


This is a really fun card for back-to-school time - or anytime really! I got the pattern from a magazine and changed it a little. (True confession - it used so many layers of paper that I didn't want to do it that way for my classes. Too much paper cutting!)

I used Bamboo, Autumn Terracotta, and Cocoa cardstock, and the B&T is from the Expedition paper pack. Love it!

There is even a handle at the top made from Cocoa grograin ribbon. You can add more ribbon to be the straps of the backpack, but I opted to do only the handle.
