More Back to School with Vicki Bolen

back to school supplies by Little Bird de Papel

School has started in Albuquerque and the University will be back in session soon. Whether your school has already started or it will start over the next month, my Little Bird de Papel Etsy store offers back to school items featuring my original art.

Last month I showed you my drawstring backpacks, spiral notebooks and pencil cases. (You can read last month’s back to school blog at Back to School with Little Bird de Papel.)

This month I want to introduce you to my tote bags, hardcover journals and large zippered pouches.

Tote Bags

My tote bags are made of soft, yet hard-wearing, 100% polyester poplin fabric. They have a 1-inch wide, super strong, cotton shoulder strap (14-inch length). My artwork is printed on both sides. All tote bags are handmade on demand, once your order is placed, by my production partner.

Hardcover Journals

My hardcover journals are 5.2″ wide x 7.3″ high. They have 128 pages, which are available in either ruled, graph or blank pages. They have a wrap around hardback cover with my artwork fully printed on the front and back.

Large Zippered Pouches

My large zippered pouches are 12.5″ wide by 8.5″ high. They are very capacious. My assistant uses hers for art supplies and keeps dozens of drawing and colored pencils, fine line markers, erasers, a pencil sharpener and even a small drawing pad. The pouch can hold so much because of its sturdy metal zipper and its 100% polyester sides. My artwork is printed on both sides of the pouch.

Author: Vicki Bolen, Little Bird de Papel

I am a paper artist living and creating in Albuquerque, NM. Working with paper to create art gives me an appreciation for the beauty and cultural significance of this versatile material. I began by folding origami cranes, and over the years my work has evolved to include handmade greeting cards, book making, boxes and mono prints. Each piece gives me the opportunity to create something useful while expressing myself artistically. I attend numerous art and crafts festivals throughout the country because my intent is to share the joy I experience in making art. My artwork is also available through my Etsy and Redbubble shops.
