Cute & Functional Mini Backpack

Have I got an DARLING 3D project for you! I'm going to show you how to make a Mini Backpack in this Facebook Live Video Replay. It's oh, so cute, functional, and fun to make. This  Mini Backpack can be used for so many occasions - graduations, teacher appreciation day, embarking on a trip or new adventure, birthdays, Father's Day, and more. I'm going to use the Mini Backpack use see in my video demonstration gift for my niece. Avery is graduating high school this month and will be attending The Ohio State University in the fall. I used OSU colors and will fill the main section of the backpack with various gift cards that I know a college student will enjoy. I'll put some mini sticky note pads in the front pocket. Then, I'll put the Mini Backpack in a clear cellophane bag and tie it up with a pretty bow and handmade tag. I think Avery will love the handmade touch I put on her graduation gift.

 

This is the Mini Backpack I received from my friend and SU! team member Tracy Dahling that inspired me to make my own Mini Backpacks for graduation gifts. Tracy had a package of flower shaped sticky notes & a chapstick in her backpack and chocolate mints in the front pocket.
