This is just a simple, quick post for today. I just wanted to show how I package up some of my metal, rusty stars, magnets and such for sale using Bag Toppers.
As you see I use those little zip top baggies and place 5 in each. And I also insert a piece of construction paper inside, behind the stars. This makes them pop just a bit.
For the topper, I go to Avery print online and design it for free. I love that site because they actually have a bag topper section so it's pretty easy to deal with.
And after that, all that is left to do is just print them off, trim up , and staple them to my bags.
(HINT: Don't print in color if you can help it, to save ink, just print black on whatever color paper you want. I go with the light brown most of the time)
Here's what they look like before I staple them on:
(They have a crease at the top for bending down the back.)
It really does make a difference, I think, in having little cute bag toppers on about any little item.
Again, here's the front:
And here is a pic of how I type out the back. Which Avery easily lets you do because there's no real guess work when using their layout.
You can customize it with anything you wish. I used my ebay link for the back and my website name for here.
I just usually stick with the same topper design for a lot of items so that they all kind of coordinate for a while. And then a few months later I will mix it up a bit.
And that's about all there is to it. It does take a little bit extra time, but it really is worth it in the end. I love how it makes something seem much more like a cute little gift already, without the gift wrap.
Happy crafting ya'll,
-PS. I am in the process of setting up with a new co-op in a neighboring town. I've rented 2 more booths and so I cannot wait to get the set up and snap some pics! Coming soon!
