Gift bag

Here is my entry for Polka Doodles week 49 challenge - Project to hold a gift.

I took a small brown paper bag and covered it on both sides with paper from the DCWV Stack 6. I cut a topper for my bag using Penny Duncan's 4 point 6 scallop nesting mat. I stamped my nephew's name with some hero arts letter stamps in white ink and colored it in with some prismacolor pencils.

I put the gift inside (not telling what it is, just in case my nephew looks at my blog!). I folded the topper in half and put it on the top of the bag and punched two holes through the topper and the bag. I attached some silver eyelets in the front and the back of the topper. I then threaded some ribbon and tied it all shut with a bow :)
