Gift Bag Punch Board Backpack

With school starting on Monday, I have a desire to send in a small gift for one of the teachers who puts in an enormous amount of time with the students.  In thinking about what I wanted to do, I came up with a variation on the triangle box that I had made a couple of months ago with the Gift Bag Punch Board.

Check out the cute backpack.

The backpack will hold a few school supplies, hand sanitizer, a notepad, sticky notes, a few treats, or in my case a gift card.

After adhering the Everyday Chic designer paper, I added a couple of straps to the back and a loop to the top.  These made it look a little more like the backpack that lives at my house.

Want to make a couple of these easy backpacks for your back to school?

Here’s a quick video:

After shooting the video, I decided to add the top loop.  It measures the same as the two pieces used for the straps.

Also, after make a couple of more backpacks I decided I prefer the Tear and Tape for the straps and top loop.

    SUPER cute! I find the gift box punch board difficult to demo, but I could put it to good use making a few of these!
