Brownie Backpacks


Good morning crafty peeps!  Only 2 weeks to the holidays!! 

So on that note all the children's activities are winding down and this means it's time to give little gifts.  I made these little backpacks with the help of  my daughter for her Brownie Leaders.  She chose the colours so of course they had to be brown and yellow.  

To make the backpacks I followed the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers.  It was very easy to follow. 

The base was rollered with Baroque Border Wheel and Holly had great fun doing this.  The straps of the backpack are 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon in Chocolate Chip.  In the front pocket Holly made a little card and in the main part we popped in a few little gifts.  After taking the photo we added a "brownie" badge with the leaders monogram to the top flap so she knew which one was which.  

Why not have a go at this fun project?  These little backpacks would be great for any occasion and can be decorated in lots of styles.  You could use stamps instead of the wheels or decorate with patterned paper.  Remember the Paper Party is still on so you could use your free pack of papers.  I would be happy to give any help if required.

Right must crack on.  Thanks for stopping in by.  Your visits are always appreciated.  Have fun. x
