Small Back Pack

Well, here's the smaller Back Pack. The finished size is 4x2-1/2x1-1/2 and is 20% smaller than the one posted on 2/4/09 using the Raspberry Tart Designer Paper. Solid card stock is used and the swirl is stamped from Baroque Motifs. This was made for my good friend, Lorene, when I saw her right before Valentines Day. Included inside the back pack are (3) paper clips which have the Valentine theme. I love the new Eyelet Punch used at the flap and on the envelope. Look for the measurements for this smaller back pack below.
