Father's Day Backpack

I've been trying to find the perfect tutorial for making the paper backpack. After many hours surfing the internet and several trial runs, I have combined about a zillion different sets of instructions and made one. This is for my Dad and it is filled with miniature Snickers Bars. Dad enjoys camping, so I had this little camping designer paper in my stash by Debbie Mumm called Travel. The base of the backpack is made with kraft paper that I stamped with Versamark Ink and the dot border from Papertrey Ink's 2009 anniversary set, Round & Round. The frame for the front was cut using Nestabilities and a clear piece of acetate was adhered in the inside of backpack. For some camping themed embellishments, I just cut out a tent and a campfire (from the designer paper) and popped them up with pop up dots. The "arm" straps were made using the same kraft paper, but I added a little bit of ribbon to keep it more stable, but the straps still bent a little bit. The flap is held down with some velcro.

Supplies:Stamps: Papertrey Ink-Round & Round
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Debbie Mumm, Recollections, clear acetate
Misc: Brads, ribbon, velcro, nestabilities, candy, pop up dots

Thanks for stopping by,
