Old School Fun!

Our new challenge over at Cut It Up is Old School!  The idea is to use something you've had in your stash for a long time!  Come share your interpretation of this theme and don't forget the die cut!

I chose to go with the Old School theme literally and make a backpack for some fun Christmas gifts or treats!  My little backpack measures 5 inches tall and 3.25 inches across the back.  It could easily fit candy, popcorn, pair of socks, jewelry, craft supplies, etc.  This cut is from the Cricut Library or Campin' Critters Cartridge!  

My "haven't used in ages" is the chunk glitter on the snowballs!  I occasionally use this glitter in shaker cards, but never on cards or layouts!  So, I decided this would be a great time to get it out of hiding.  I also don't use my Studio G Glitter Glue that often!
