Back to school tags for backpacks

Paper Panther here, I will have 3 kids in school this year~! A 5th grader girl, a kindergarten boy, and a preschool girl. That just leaves me and the 2 year old- until the baby comes in January. I am hoping for many naps :) I have wanted to do this project for a few years, and having the Celebrate the Occasion challenge be a school one, I felt this is a perfect project.My 5th grader did not want anything 'not cool' so she chose shiny lips from the dcwv rock star pack. Then, since she is a ballerina, she put some fun ballet stickers on.
My preschooler is such a girly girl- I did not let her help since she would have chosen the entire scrapbook collection- I did let her pick her favorite princess stickers.
Kindergarten boy is a huge star wars fan and he picked his stuff out himself. I used the packaging of the creative imaginations star wars kit.

I used a tag and folded it in half. My ATG gun is awesome and holds the paper on like it was born there. But I will still laminate them for durability from weather and other kids. I left the back folded over and blank. I am going to write in their name and information and then velcro it closed. That way if the pack does get lost- it is all right there.
So, the back fold had to be decorated too :)
I hope you enter the CTO challenge this week also.
