Backpack (Randoseru) Papercraft

Check out what I found after surfing some Japanese sites. Two nice looking school bag papercrafts. I learned that these are called randoseru. A randoseru is a firm-sided backpack made of stitched firm leather or leather-like synthetic material, most commonly used in Japan by elementary schoolchildren. The randoseru is the most universal and recognizable feature of the Japanese school uniform and is considered symbolic of the virtues necessary to obtain a good education—unity, discipline, hard work and dedication.
