Sweet Satchel for First Day at School , holds a Treat and a Mini Chalkboard!

Good afternoon @all,

i am happy to present the tutorial for this cute little project. It`s great for first day at school or back to school to give the child a little treat!
It  also goes nicely together with a German Schultüte, a video tutorial i made the other week.
The satchel features a mittle chalkboard that fits inside, and ha space for a hand written message on it.
This satchel is a great gift packaging for some treats or anything you feel might be good for a first day at school.
In the video tutorial, i promised to list all the correct measurements on my blog, so here they are:

1 piece of card stock, measuring 8 1/4" x 10" for the satchel.
score the long side at 1/2", 2 1/2", 5 1/4" and 7 1/4"
score the short side at 
 1 1/4" and 4 3/4"
go back to the long side and score 2 additional lines at 1 1/2" and 6 1/4" but do not score all the way down, stop scoreing approx. 1 " above the last horizontal score line before you would reach the bottom.
you will need 3 pieces of DSP, 2 for outside and 1 for the inside.
6 1/2" x 2 1/4", 5 1/2" x 2 1/4" and 3 1/4" x 2 1/4".

For the chalk board, cut 1 piece of card stock to 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" and 2 pieces in black, 2" x 3".

For the closure, cut 2 strips of card stock to 2 1/4" x 1/2" and layer with DSP,
2 strips of card stock to 7/8" x 1/4" and layer with DSP.

For the handle and the 2 shoulder straps, cut 3 strips to 3 3/4" x 1/2" and layer with DSP.

For the tags, punch out a 1 1/4" circle and a 1 1/2" scalloped circle.

So these measurements are all correct and please ignore whatever i might have misspoken in the video, please refer to the measurements above for perfect fitting of all parts.
