This is one of the required 3D items for the contest. I have made backpacks before. I have three kids and am on the teacher appreciation committee so this is a theme I am familiar with. This time however I used the Gift Bag Punch Board to make the backpack! Wish they had had this a few years ago when I made twenty of them! The punch board makes this so simple.
You can fill this larger area with a gift card, candy, or cash :)
I wanted to make a front pocket for the backpack, as all the backpacks in my house have them. The sizes on this sort of depend on what you hope to put in the pocket. Maybe a little note, maybe a gold coin or a gold chocolate coin? This is the basic shape, you can size it down or up depending on what size bag you made.
