Tip Template Tuesday: School Satchel

It is back to school time! Today we would like to give you a template for making a school satchel card.

Download and enlarge the template by 200% (should be 11" in length), and print it out. Cut out one of each of the elements on the solid lines. Score on the dashed lines. Put the handle through the cut slot in the top fold, and affix in place on the inside. Attach two ribbons to the inside of the front flap of the satchel, just above the buckles, then wrap all the way around the satchel, and pass through the satchel buckles to close the satchel. Glue on the name-plate.

Make your satchel from faux-leather, decorate it in school colors. Corner punch the corners of the top flap. Add grommets, buttons, or other hardware. Seal up the sides, or add an insert made from an envelope. Make it YOURS!

We would love to see what you come up with from this basic template. Please feel free to share by uploading a photo somewhere (Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket, etc.) and then share a link with us in the comments. To share all you need to do is add the following codes to your comment, and then replace the word "link" with the actual link to your photo:

      <a href="link">My School Satchel</a>

Your comment will then contain the words "My School Satchel" which will link to your photo. The design team really looks forward to seeing your work!
