Craft Critter Challenge #12

Our challenge was to make a backpack
Backpack BoxI have been dying to try making one of these and just haven't gotten around to so.....I'm now getting around to it and so are you!This is technique TLC232 and you can find tons of samples.
Steps to this challenge:1. make a backpack box
2. it must be a childrens theme.....superheros, animals, princess, name it you can do it....but it MUST be a childs theme.
3. fill it with goodies as a gift to a special child in your life

Let's just say this is NOT my best work but it's done and posted! The actual template for the backpack is pretty easy to cut out and score and fairly easy to put together I think where I ran into issues was...too much pattern paper....I should have used a solid with the robot paper and my other problem was the first kind of ribbon I tried. I ended up tearing right through the DP because I used a ribbon that didn't "give" very much and I pulled too hard and out came the eyelets....very frustrating to say the least but this was the very first one I made and I do intend to do more....the first is always trial and error!

The DP I used was from DCWV...I had been dying to break into this pack. Eyelets are SU! and so is the ribbon....I think that's all the stuff you need besides tape of course!

This is overly adorable, I think you did a great job on it. I know what you mean about the ribbon, you almost need to use a ribbon that is thin. I have this same paper pack and love it. It's actually the same paper pack I created my backpack with.
