Back to School Lunch Bag ...

Good morning! It's the start of a new month, and that means we have a NEW Challenge starting today at the Scor-Pal Blog.

I turned the Scor-Pal Backpack Tutorial into a Lunch bag. I used the basic design as shown in the Tutorial, and made it my own (I was inspired by my daughters lunch bag). I went with classic black and red cardstock with petite white polka dots. The Black cardstock I use is perfect for making 3D projects, and the red is the last of my stash from A-Muse Studios. I added a gusset pocket to the front of the bag so you can put a little note inside of it, and embellished it with a flower. I used a decorative punch for the corners of the bag.

Basic Grey Large Magnet was used to hold the bag closed ... strips of Velcro or Removable Glue Dots would also work. I added black mesh-like ribbon to the sides to represent mesh for putting those drinks in ... you can also add this feature to the Backpack if you make one.

Instead of have Backpack straps I created a handle for the top of the bag, and placed Black Enamel Dots to each side of the handle for decorations. You could use brads for this area also.

Here are a couple more pictures showing different views of my Lunch Bag.

My great niece just started Kindergarten, and is going to be a big sister in a couple of days also. I'll be sending this to her with a little note, and some goodies inside. This would also be a cute idea for a Teacher Gift.
