Dimensional Paper Backpack Gift Box

Dimensional Paper Backpack Gift Box

I love to share paper crafted gifts! It brings me so much joy to share the hobby I love with other people and I find I end up thinking about the person I'm making it for during the entire process. 

My latest creation is a backpack gift box for my grandson's teacher gift. I like to find cute and unusual gift boxes to make for their gifts because to me, the box is just as much of a gift to them as the present. 


The backpack is a file from SVGCUTS.com 2013. The Collection is "Back to the Books" which can be found here. I won't go into assembly of this backpack because there is a great tutorial video on that same page.

You'll notice the ABC letters are popped up a bit off the backpack. To get this look, I cut 6 'A's", 6 "B's" and 6 "C's" and stacked them on top of each other for dimension. This is a good strategy to use when you are out of dimensional foam stickers, but still want that raised look.

I'm excited to pass this gift along to my grandson's teacher.

    How do you get the paper to line up for the panels on a Cricut machine?
