CCMC 111: Back to School Backpack

A friend has asked me to make a couple of cards for her daughter's teachers for first day of school. I originally was just going to make a couple of quick cards. But I didn't feel any creative juices in that direction. Instead, my mind jumped to making a backpack. I looked online for some tutorials and finally decided on marrying two together. The first was two videos by Tracy Greven of scrappinqueenbee88 (this one and this one). I also took the ideas for the handle and straps from Mary Arima on splitcoaststampers.com.
Side view.
I will not see my friend until Sunday. I can't wait to show her the bags I've made and see her reaction.

Oh, and I just saw there's a Back-to-School challenge at Create with Connie and Mary. I think I will enter the challenge!
