Happy Harvest Blessings

It is the time of the year were we crafters get ready for three major celebrations. I'm bouncing back and forth between Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. There are so many cute projects in my mind and I feel like I don't have enough time to show all of them to you.
Today I wanted to show you this gift bag idea which I decorated with the leaves from the Colorful Seasons Bundle. I embossed the front with the Basket Weave embossing folder and sprinkled a little of the Early Espresso Refill ink over the front of the topper. 
 To make the topper you take a piece of paper and cut it in the width of the bag you will be using. I cut my paper 5"x5" and folded it in half. To create the handle I used two of the Layering Ovals Framelits, make sure you use two sizes which are like two sizes apart. Then line up the middle of the folded paper and the middle of the framelits (I marked mine with a Sharpie)  and secure it with some Washi Tape. Before you run the sandwich through your cutter make sure the top plastic plate edge lines up with the middle of the folded paper. That way you will not cut all the way through, because we only want to create a handle. I folded and clued the middle piece to the back of the topper and after I decorated it, I stapled it to the bag.
Thanks for stopping by!
