Backpack Box

Hey Friends! My daughter gave me a day off today! Whoohoo! She wanted to go to school early today so she caught the bus to school. The bus system is terrible. . .there's only two times during the day that the bus routes to the school campus. . .early, early morning or late afternoon. No in between times. . .otherwise my daughter could catch the bus daily and I wouldn't have to drive her to school.

Because I had the day off. . .I found some time to create this backpack box project. It's nothing new but new for me. I've seen a few bloggers creating this project. I found the template on SCS: Click Here It's rather simple to create the box but the box is smaller than I expected. I suppose you could enlarge the template and create a bigger box. Nonetheless, it is a really cute box!

I really want to tackle all the fun SCS tutorials. . .looks like a lot of fun projects over there! I'm really lazy in exploring new projects and this is a great way to do something different. I posted the link to the SCS materlist a few days ago but if you want it again, here it is: Click Here

Are you an avid follower of SCS? I sort of go through phases. . .there's times when I won't visit SCS for months and there are times, when I'll visit the site regularly. Right now, I'm on the "visiting regularly" phase! LOL!

Anyway...because I have the time today to play in my craft room. . .I really want to make the most of it. . .on to my next project! Hope you all are having a wonderful day!

Project Details:

Paper: DCWV Glitter stack designer paper, SU Real Red
Accessories: SU Rhinestone Brads, SU 1/4 Real Red Grosgrain ribbon, Prima Flower

Oh Maria, this came out sooo cute! I love it! I've been wanting to make this but I have no one to give it to so I will wait until then! Thanks for the inspiration!

How's the weather at your neck of the woods? it's gloomy here but thank goodness no hurricane like they were predicting.

Hi Maria,
I love your projects. The colors are beautiful. Maybe I will have time to make one for my daughters before school starts at the end of the month. I know they would love it.

I am like you and go thru stages. I used to be on SCS ALL the time when it was in its earlier years.

I DO have this backpack box on my wish list to do though. Ü

Viv said...

I'm the same! SCS is an amazing place but scares me 'coz it's SO big!! I venture in there now and again through the back door when no-one's looking! LOL
I will deffo go in and try this one out. You've made two gorgeous bags and they are ideal for a gift I want to give.

Cami said...

Aaawww, Maria, these backpack bags are sooooo cute! Love the DPs you used and the flower. I copied the instructions months ago (a year?) and still have it on my "need to do" list and still haven't tried it. Seeing yours inspires me to take a second look at my "pending" list LOL! Love this!!! Hugs, Cami
