We're having a Secret Santa exchange at work this year and I needed some special gift boxes. I wanted my backpack to have a candy cane top instead of a sleeping bag, so I used American Crafts Holiday Red Suit paper for the peppermint roll on top. I cut white paper to cover the oval, so that the side appeared like a candy. I used sticky Velcro at the seam so, the roll is a gift box too! I used sticky Velcro in the side pockets and will add a little Inside I put a roll of mints but it would be perfect for your favorite lip balm too!

Here are some dimensions for you: I cut the box at 11 3/4" and had to hide some of the straps to fit in on the mat. My finished backpack portion is 4 3/4" high and 3" x 2 1/2" wide. With the roll on top the finished height is 6 1/2". Side pockets are too small for a gift card, but I will put find a little something special to put in them! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
