ALL DRESSED UP BACKPACK!

Have you seen these cutie bags around the internet?  They are made with the All Dressed Up Dies from the Best Dressed Suite.  So sweet. ❤

This is one I made for my presentation at Onstage.  By changing the handles you can make it in to a backpack.

I kept it simple and didn’t add a tag on this one but it is easy to do.  You don’t need too much with this gorgeous paper from the Best Dressed Designer Series paper. 

Cut the buckle out using the die and add that to the strip before adhering the handle to the bag. To add the handle, adhere one end of the strip inside the front of the bag.  The other end, fold over the end a little and then adhere this to the back of the bag checking the position of the handle so you have a little curve happening.

A few people have commented about cutting the paper with these dies that they tend to be “cutting” rather than “scoring” on the bag.  I would suggest play around with the layers on your diecutting machine. You may need a shim on the top of your plates.  Alternatively, if you have a soft mat place that as your top cutting plate making sure the die is facing down as you don’t want to cut the mat. 🙂

Others have asked how tall these bags are. They are tiny.  It stands at the height of the Tombow multipurpose adhesive.  If fits the small notecards in which is about 7cm (3″) high.

Happy playing.
