Back to School Tutorials with Scor-Pal with Katie Tate

Katie from Both Sides of The Paper and it's my turn to share a tutorial for "Back to School" week at Scor-Pal!
I decided to go with a backpack style gift bag, perfect for a little gift for your favorite teacher to start their year off right.

Project Recipe:
Scoring Tool - Scor-Pal
Adhesive - Scor-Tape
Paper - The Grade School Stack by DCWV
Ribbon - Really Reasonable Ribbon

The backpack starts with cardstock 12" by 8". On the 12" side score at 5" and 7". Rotate to the 8" side and score at 1", 2", 6" and 7"

Burnish all score lines and snip on the flaps as in the photo

Score on the center of the flaps and bend inwards as in the photo.

Remove one flap from the each side (opposite sides) on the long side as they make the sides too stiff to fold. Add Scor-Tape to the flaps as shown.

Remove the cover on the Scor-Tape and adhere the sides to form the gift bag.

To make the flap use a piece of cardstock 5" by 4", score at 1" and 3" on the 5" side. (I will admit I would make this a little shorter next time but wanted to show exactly how this one was made). I would have scored at 1" and 2" and made the length 3" not 4". Angle the corners as shown in the photo.

The straps are made from 6" by 1" scored at 1/2" and 5 1/2"

Add Scor-Tape to the 1/2" flaps

Add the straps and then decorate to your style.

I made 2 slits in the flap and the backpack and threaded ribbon through to form a closure.
I hope you enjoyed this and have enjoyed all the projects this week, if you have missed any please go and check them all out.
