I drew and cut the shapes with Chick by my side. She kept me in check by telling me when my designs looked nothing like what they were supposed to look like. This was infinitely helpful since the backpack definitely looked like a rocket ship at one point.
The board was scrap wood from our shed. I used paint and Mod Podge from my studio’s shelves, the hooks were around $1.80 each at the hardware store, and origami paper was kicking it in my paper drawer, so this was definitely a remake made on the cheap.
