I was so excited to try one of these backpacks and then I did it and realized how much time and effort it took (wow.) Luckily most of it was created for me because I used the (discontinued) :( Stampin, Up! bag w/scallop, bigz die. It's the little pouch on the front that made it so time consuming. It had to be small which made it hard to create. I got out the score pal and guessed on the measurements which is what I usually do but, this time it seemed more difficult. I still think it's the sweetest little thing and just in time for a great back to school project.
