Many of you guessed from my sneak peek yesterday that I “whittled” a backpack from the new Stampin’ Up! Petite Purse Bigz L Die. Bravo! You were right! The backpack measures approx. 2 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ x 1 3/8″ and can easily handle a small gift, coins, a treat or even a little love note for a lunch box!
SUMMER SMOOCHES PROMOTION STARTS APRIL 1! The Petite Purse Bigz L Die will be available in the 2012-2013 Stampin’ Up! Catalog on June 1. However, customers will have a special opportunity to pre-order the die and other cool new products from the Summer Smooches collection, April 1 through April 30. See Stampin’ Up! Summer Smooches Brochure and Details.
- Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight and Real Red are perfect for a school theme. Anyone else reminded of the Madeline books? Bonjour!
- I used a 1 3/4″ Circle Punch (cut in half) for the top “pocket” and the Extra-Large Oval Punch (cut in half) for the bottom pocket. Both are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a 3-D effect.
- I used Stampin’ Up! Sticky Strip to adhere the ribbon in back and assemble the backpack (just two spots on the backpack–very simple engineering).
- The mini card measures 2 3/4″ square. It does not fit inside the backpack (that’s reserved for treats). Cool thing . . . the Sweet Shoppe Alphabet Lower stamp set letters fit perfectly within a 1/2″ Circle Punch.
