  1. Use Gift Bag punch board to create the base for a Medium gift bag. On the top edge (opposite the base flaps), score all the way along the horizontal line and punch a flap opposite the last large section (the back of the bag). The flap will be the top of the backpack. Cut off all the top edge EXCEPT the flap. (See image A)
  2. Adhere 4” x 2-7/8” DSP to the large area in the middle of the bag as shown.
  3. Punch 4 holes in the back of the backpack and thread ribbon through the top, tying inside the back panel (See image B)
  4. Apply Tear & Tape to the front left (smallest) flap of bag and the underside of the flap below the DSP panel. Assemble to create backpack.
  5. Using the Envelope Punch Board, create a “box” with the 4” square DSP, starting at the 1-3/4” score line. Repeat with the 2” score line on the same envelope to make a box. Assemble box and adhere to front panel of backpack.
  6. Use magnets or velcro dots to keep backpack flap and pocket closed.
  7. Stamp “So Proud of You” in Denim on scrap of white card stock, punch out with Classic Label Punch and adhere to top flap. Embellish as desired.
