Cute Gift Bag Topper!

My friend and I made this cute gift bag topper for her daughter's birthday!  The purple base is12 x 12 cardstock folded in half with a small rectangle cut out with a craft knife to make room for the handles then punched with a Martha Stewart floral vine deep edge punch.   The braid is punched with a Martha Stewart punch called linked trim.  It is laced with a strip of purple carstock.  The beautiful paper pattern is TPC Studio Spring Stained Glass.  The paper has a beautiful shimmer to it.  The flower and tag are die cut with Spellbinders dies. The tag is labels 3 and the flower is a custom die by Heartfelt Creations called Posey Patch Die.  This set also has custom stamps to match at Heartfelt Creations.The stamp used on the tag is also from TPC Studio and is called Coffee Cafe. It is embossed in brown on glossy green cardstock cut with Nestabilities label 3.  The topper is then placed over a kraft gift bag after the gift has been placed in it.  It not only is beautiful packaging, but also serves to close the top of the bag and prevent peaking in the tissue paper!!  Happy Birthday Lauren!
