School Bog Hop Day Two: Another Storage Idea

Welcome to day two of the School blog hop! Be sure to comment on todays post on all of the blogs for a chance to win the grand prize of a $20.00 gift certificate for Cloud 9 Designs and a $5.00 gift certificate for Jen's Digi Stamps! If you're like me, you will find that you have more school paper work than you know what to do with! I have made another storage page for report cards for my grade schooler. This one is a bit cuter and hides the actual report card.

To make this backpack, I created a cut file for the base using George Basic Shapes and Opposites Attract. I printed the paper for the background and the back pack base using my Cricut Imagine and the Imagine More Cartridge. The scalloped top for the back pack and the pocket are both from the same Imagine Cartridge. I just put the Grateful and leaves behind the back pack base for the top flap and the pocket flap, I separated out the layers to get the different colors.

The base piece is scored and folded to have a 1/4" side, and pocket. The flap attaches to the base with some sticky velcro. See the photo below. To accomodate this page in my scrapbooks, I use a chipboard, or foam board shim in the spin of my album. If you would like the cut file you can fin it here and I have included a flap, incase you don't have the Imagine!
