Create a treat bag topper to add a special touch to your gift bags! This week for our Sizzix Triple Play blog hop, we are using Eileen Hull’s Treat Bag topper die. There are so many possibilities for uses with this die with its versatility. I love it!
I also love decoupaging so I decoupaged my topper to give it texture and color. I like the marbleized look that resulted, although the paper napkin I used was a floral pattern.
The materials I used included:
Die for Treat Bag Toppers Bigz XL Die #656774 by Eileen Hull for Sizzix
Heavy card stock
Paper Napkin with a pattern
Pink oil paint stick
Green acrylic paint
2 pink rhinestone brads
Glue – Beacon Zip Dry
1.Tear the paper napkin into small pieces and decoupage to the treat topper with Mod Podge. Use the Mod Podge to glue the napkin to the topper and to seal the top of the paper. I used several layers of the napkin to get more texture.
2. Paint the large medallion pink. I used an oil paint stick to paint it – I like the pearled look of the paint. I then painted a smaller oval medallion green.
3. Glue the the green oval centered to the pink medallion and glue the cabochon bead centered on the green medallion. I used glue dots to attach the medallion to the bag topper so that it stands out.
4. Use the rhinestone brads to attach the topper to the bag (after you have added your goodie to the bag!).
