For the above bag I scored the bag on each side at 1/2" and folded it under. This made the bag fit in the card topper. Below is a photo to show how I cut the card at 2 1/2" before decorating it. You can make two out of one card.
I loved decorating the card for the bag. The gold behind the black really sets the card. Some gold thread or cord would be fun behind the sentiment. A white paper doily would also be fun. There are so many options for this bag. Remember to fill the bag before placing the card at the top. I have a necklace to put in this bag before giving it to the recipient. In the beginning some of the Paper Pumpkin kits were not my favorites but since then I have fallen totally in love with Paper Pumpkin! Thank you for stopping by! Come back tomorrow and I will show you a sympathy card I sent to my dear friend Linda Bauwin who just lost her husband suddenly of a massive heart attack. Totally unexpected. You may remember Linda's projects when you hop on the Creative Inking Blog hops like yesterday. She is a participant so I made a special card just for her.
I hope you will subscribe to my blog and not miss out on any projects I am working on.
