Wednesday "Belli Challenge" - back-to-school



For this week's "Belli Challenge" we are making things with the theme "back-to-school". I have been wanting to make one of these cute backpacks and it was perfect for the back-to-school theme. There is a tutorial on www.inkingidaho.blogspot.com for these mini backpacks. You'll notice that I forgot the little loop on the top, but I think that it still looks fine. I used Close to Cocoa Card Stock, Bella Rose Designer Paper, and Buttons. I used Twill for the "shoulder" straps and I just inked it in my ink pad. I used Velcro dots to hold the flaps shut. To see more back-to-school projects go to these participants blogs:
