Off to School

Hi, my project today is a little backpack created as a gift bag to hold some pencils, erasers, etc. You can see the template HERE. I made mine a little taller to fit in the pencils and it makes a cute gift for someone starting school. This ties in with Simply Magnolia's newest challenge, which is to create a bag and decorate it.
Stamp - Autumn Tilda with Pencils
Papers - Maja Design's gorgeous Sofiero collection
Dies - Memory Box butterfly and Magnolia Heart Swirl
Basic Grey Magnetic Snaps for top of bag and pocket.
Shabby Pink Frantage on the heart.
Tilda background and butterfly have been airbrushed with colour.
I would like to enter the following challenges,
Live and Love Crafts - Inspiration Collage
Dutch Magnolia Lovers - Back to School
Tilda's Town - Something Old, Something New
And here is a few more images.
