Patchwork Blooms

Hello Everyone

Today I am back with a great adornment for the plain ol' gift bag we all use from time to time.  
We all get busy and when it's gift giving time, 
sometimes we just add the gift to a bag, add a little tissue for that fru fru look and we give it. 
Well I like to make bag toppers. 
They dress up the bag and add some personality to that plain bag. 

I sell a lot of my cards and other paper craft items at a local shop, 
L&M Busy Hands Craft & Gift Shop in Ft Mitchell, 
and this bag topper will be down there Friday. 
I will be bringing 2 others as well. 
Similar, but the pocket color will be either orange, pink, or blue.

I thought this topper would look great on a kraft colored gift bag,
 what do you think.

Here is a closer view of the pocket image on the bag topper.

My bag topper itself is scalloped and is a die that I have had for eons. 
It is from Accucut but unfortunately is no longer available.

I have gotten a lot of use out of that die, 
and will continue to use it to make unique bag toppers

I just love my bag toppers.

The flowers and the pocket on the bag topper are from 
the Patchwork Daisy papers and stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations.

Wowser! That's the way to spruce up a Kraft bag! How beautiful Barbara. Love the coloring of the little flowers and the fact that there is added dimension to the layers of petals. Beautiful work.
