Welcome! Today we are are celebrating Stampin' Up!'s biggest sale of the year - Sale-a-bration!! During Sale-a-bration you can earn free exclusive items with your purchases - I love free!
This adorable Meerkat that I'm featuring on today's Valentine Backpack project is one of the free choices with a $50 US purchase (plus tax and shipping). The set is called The Gangs All Meer and it is so cute!! I have a video below walking you through making this cute little backpack with the new All Dressed Up dies from the Stampin' Up! January - June 2020 Mini Catalog!
The Meerkat is a little tag that slides out of the pocket with a special message (the "For You" image is from the Heart To Heart stamp set). The small punched heart he is holding is from the Dog Builder punch, just his size!
The backside of our little treat holder backpack has a nice traditional Valentine's greeting from the Heartfelt stamp set and the coordinating Heart Punch Pack with it's two layering punches. You can purchase them together as a bundle here. The adorable buckles are part of the Dressed To Impress Dies which make this cute little backpack.
I love the little buttons that come in the All Dressed Up dies - they add so much to the finished project! The die set comes with two small button and two large button dies so that you can multi-task and cut your buttons in double time! For this backpack I wanted a more traditional flap for closure - so I used the same die that I used for the pocket to cut the flap.
Here is the video on how to make this project!
In this version I used the other closure tab from the die set which is a strap. This die cuts a gusseted side, which can be assembled with the gusset pointing out, then it looks more like a purse and holds larger items. This little die is so versatile and fun to work with!
