Chirper Challenge #19-Interactive Fun

Hey yall! How are you today? Good I hope! For our challenge #19 at the Chirper Challenge blog, we are having some interactive fun! If you do not know, the Chirper Challenge focuses on using your Cricut cutting machine. We were challenged to create a interactive layout, card, or project. I created this little 'Back 2 School' project for my Mom. I thought it would look cute sitting at her desk when the new school year rolls around. She teaches 5th grade. First, I created the little interactive backpack. This was so fun. If you would like the instructions on the backpack, go here:

I then used my Cricut and the following carts for the rest:
1.Paper Doll Dress Up
2. Doodlecharms
3. Stretch Your Imagination
4. Plantin' Schoolbook
5. Cuttin' Up
I added some Stickles glitter glue, ribbon, and some bling. Here it is:

I used some velcro adhesive dots for the 2 flaps on the backpack. I hid a bookmark for Mom down inside the backpack. Here is a pic so you can see what it looks like opened up.

To show the dimension. Aren't those little backpack straps the cutest!!! I'm tellin' yall, you gotta make this little backpack. I was gigglin' the whole time! Hee hee!
I curled the edges of the sun.

I added some ribbon for a bow in her hair and some bling for little earrings. I also added chalk for blush on her cheeks.

So if you have a interactive project you want to do, this is a great time to show it off. Here is the link to the blog for ya:
Hope to see you there! Thanks for lookin'! Yall enjoy your day!
Pin It!
