Anyway, this weeks challenge from Heart 2 Heart is anything related to Back to School. Again I have the privilege of being a guest designer this week and I have created this cute little Backpack Box.
I made one of these a couple of years ago as a present for my daughter's teacher. They are so cute and fun to make. You can fill it with Chocolate candy - who doesn't need a little chocolate to make it through the day? I was excited to make this using the new CTMH Typeset papers (X7139B). I found the original template created by Mary Arima at Split Coast Stampers. Click Here for the template.
I also used some chocolate grosgrain ribbon and two wooden buttons. I used some velcro for the closures, but if you have the small magnetic closures that would work even better. To give the Juniper Cardstock some texture, I stamped the linen background stamp from CTMH's D1477 Universal Backgrounds stamp set. I used Juniper ink and dabbed on some Chocolate ink to the stamp before stamping onto the paper.
If you have time between shopping for school clothes, supplies, and getting that last minute vacation in join us for the challenge. Be sure to post your artwork, so I can see what you have created!
