Ballet Backpack

Designing For The Cutting Cafe

Today I have the cutest cut file 
created by Regina at The Cutting Cafe!

She has designed a BACKPACK that is just perfect to hold
some fun goodies or a gift card.

I have a granddaughter Kendall who is 13 and has been in dance
since she was 4, 
so I made a dance recital backpack with her in mind.

I had the perfect paper in my stash
 (probably bought for scrap booking which I don't do anymore).

I cut this out on my Cricut in no time at all
(but all the files come in a PDF version too if you don't have an electronic machine)
One of the fun things and it wasn't thought out at all,
was when I cut the flap for the top of the pocket
it came out perfect with the words 'opening night' and ballet shoes....
couldn't of done any better then that!

I added a glittery ballerina to the front pocket,
which by the way, a Ghiradelli chocolate will fit in perfect.

Her birthday is in February and I plan to save this for her,
add the chocolates and a gift card in the back pack itself!

Make sure to come back tomorrow on the 21st
to The Cutting Cafe blog as all the designers are there
showing their own backpacks..all so different and creative
and you won't want to miss it.

Entering the following challenges:
