Flower Petal Backpack

I’m going to apologize in advance for the crappy pictures. I took them on my cell phone and I’m not cool enough to have one of those fancy Iphones. :)30485_412783298953_832343953_4330566_3147968_n~Materials:                                                                                                               1 backpack                                                                                                               1 bag of flower petals                                                                                        hot glue gun

All I did was stuff the bag with paper to give it some kind of form and then started gluing on the flower petals. I started my rows from the bottom of the bag and worked my way up. That way I was able to see an open spots once I was done.34098_412783223953_832343953_4330565_1752552_n I found the canvas backpack at Michael’s for about a $1 and the flower petals I found at the Dollar Tree.

  1. What a great idea! I think the backpack looks just adorable and I have a tote bag this technique would be perfect for. Thanks!

  2. I was thinking a tote would be super cute that way. You'll have to let me know how it turns out! Yes, it did seem we were the only ones with different opinions. I think it's great to have different opinions, I just get a little upset when others put people down because of those differences. :)
