I received the Take A Hike Collection - and as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to create a paper backpack box that I had seen awhile back on Splitcoast Stampers.
May Arts Ribbon Paper Twine 420-33
Epiphany Crafts Round Epoxy
CTMH Velcro Dots
I used a tutorial designed by Mary Arima - and it's very clear and easy to understand, so I will just let you refer to her original post on Splitcoast Stampers.
When you are working with printed templates, such as the one used for this project, I would suggest using small metal clips to attach your template to the designer paper. This will keep anything from slipping and will provide a much more accurate cut.
As soon as I finished this project, my nephew took off with it, and promptly put it on the back of one of his stuffed animals!
I used the printed bingo card from this collection to make a small tag that fit perfectly into the backpack. Just the perfect little note to tuck inside.
The other little tip that I can share with you, is that I used small adhesive velcro dots for my closure on the box. It also works great to keep fancy fold cards shut.
Next up, Scor-pal Designer Diane Zechman:
The first card is called a Stand Up Card.
I added some Stickles to the star and "hello" sentiment to make them stand out. Love that bike sticker!
Here's a view of the back of the card so you can see the scoring/folding.
For my second card I made a very simple Folded Paper Frame to showcase the main greeting (a Snap card). A tutorial on how to make the frame can be found here.
I also added some Stickles to the main image on this one. Some additional stickers and another Snap card on the inside...
Love the Snap Color Vibe collection of papers!
