BCD's FREE Valentine's Hybrid Project

Welcome To The Cherry On Top!

I'm teamed up again, with Boutique Cute Doll.  Yay!  I love Kel's designs!

The newest release is just lovely with a capital "L".  "Seasons Of Love" is the kit I used to make today's hybrid project.  You are gonna love just how versatile this one is.  No cutsie stuff this time.  This is great for adults, tweens, teens, boys and you could even use these bag toppers/tags on just about any occasion.

Listen, I set this baby up for the upmost flexibility.  I left a considerable amount of white space so you can cut them to the size you need.  I also left the background white, so you don't use too much ink.  Anything to make things easier and save you cash, right?!

OK, let's get down to business!

1)  You've downloaded your FREEBIE from BCD's blog.  You didn't?!  Then click here.

2)  Print out your bag toppers in the size desired.  I used the largest setting on my printer which was 20.3 cm x 25.4 cm and it was perfect for my project.

Cut out your four bag toppers at the size you need.  You can choose to cut out the black lines.
(The freebie is no longer available.)


3) Grab the goodies you will need.  There are so many things you can do with these.  You can use the plastic bags that you buy in the store made just for this kind of project, zip locks, small paper bags, etc.  Anything you want.  Just as long as you can fold over the topper on the top of your bag.

OOOORRR...


After not having much success with my bags because I have no idea where to buy them and the zip locks were way too, big.  I have no desire to give away so much junk to the kids.  They are crazy enough!  Ha!

So, I came up with this.  I grabbed my clear foil.  You can also use cling wrap if it is all you have.  I cut out a nice size square and added just a few, little treats in the middle.


Then, I tied it at the top with some ribbon and curled the ends.  I printed out the toppers much smaller, punched a small hole in the left corner and pulled the ribbon through.  That's it!  It will stay if you use a small enough hole.  You can tape it, staple, glue, glue dot, whatever suits your project.


Here is what it should normally look like.  I cut up a zip lock so you had a nice example.


Here's the new release, "Seasons Of Love", I used for the project.  If you just have to have it, which you probably will, then click on the image to get to the store.  It's on sale for the moment, too!
