Making A Sweetie Bag with Topper.

A couple of people have asked how I make my sweetie bags and toppers so I have done a series of photos that I hope will help.
I use a medium sized die from Nestabilities Label Set 4  for the bag topper cut on my Big Shot

I then score it down the middle on my scoreboard

I use tall card cello bags to put the sweeties in and seal it with my Elitech bag sealer (bought from e-bay)
Picture 257 Picture 258
The bag seals and cuts, so I can usually get two sweetie bags from one cello bag

I apply double sided tape to each side of the bag topper

I then decorate the topper, sometimes using my Stampin Up plain and scalloped edged punches. (see Stampin Up link for more information)

….. and that’s all there is to it!!
