Top Note cello bag topper

I purchased these key chains for a few people at Convention this year and need something nice to "present" them.  The Top Note die came to the rescue again! 

I ran Bashful Blue cardstock and the floral DSP from Summer Picnic thru the Big Shot AT THE SAME TIME!  (You can do up to 4 sheets of cardstock easily!) Then I trimmed the perforated edge off the DSP with my scissors, adhered it to the Bashful Blue layer, then stapled that around the cello bag.  I wrapped the Old Olive grosgrain ribbon around the topper and added Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Whisper White flowers from my Big Shot and a rhinestone center!  I love it…and the recipients have loved them, too.  So much better to give a little item packaged prettily, than just handing them the object!  I know I don’t want to open things like this!  lol!

We spent yesterday at the Lake, it was a gorgeous day!  Sad that we’ll probably only get to enjoy the boat for a few more weekends this year.  This summer has FLOWN by!  I’m crazy busy, too, until end of October…then the holiday rush is on.  Oh my!

Enjoy your Labor Day holiday!

You mean we are supposed to actually give away the things we buy at Memento Mall to the people we bought them for? lol Yes mine are still sitting here!

I love the topper you made. Don’t you just love the Top Note Die!
