Satchel Style Backpack

Hi everyone, here’s my Satchel Style Backpack I recently shared.

It’s been a while since I had made any gift bags, so it was nice to put this one together.

As soon as I started making this I wanted to make a smaller version, so keep an eye out for a mini backpack soon.

The strap details really make this gift bag, however, you don’t have to have them and you can easier change the way you attach them.

The matching gift tag was made using a selection of heart dies from my stash and a sweet sentiment!

SUPPLIES USED TO MAKE THIS GIFT BAG

I purchased The Pink Paper Block from The Range UK and it’s not showing on their website so you will have to check your local stores. I have found their wholesale website here.

The heart dies were an older Bright Rosa set and now sold out.

MEASUREMENTS NEEDED TO MAKE THIS GIFT BAG

2 pieces of 12 x 12 cardstock.

Score along the 12″ side at 1/2″ & 9.1/2

Score along the side at 2.1/2 & 9.1/2

2 pieces of 1″ x 12″ card for the back straps

1 piece of 1″ x 12″ card for the top handle

2 pieces of 1″ x 12″ card for the front straps

2 pieces of 5/8″ x 2″ card for the two small tabs on the front.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made it.

 

Thank you for visiting my blog today, I hope you’ve enjoyed this gift bag project I’ve shared.

Happy crafting
