Kettle Corn Bag Topper

Hello there, do you love Kettle Corn?!  My family loves it, so whenever I can get it fresh and handmade, I do!  I decided this time to break two HUGE bags into several bags for each of them with a little tag.  I love to make cards, but bag toppers not so much.  I wanted something simple, as they were going to rip it off quickly to get to the yumminess. 

First, let me explain exactly what is Kettle Corn.  It’s a sweet-and-salty variety of popcorn that is typically mixed or seasoned with a light-colored refined sugar, salt, and oil. It was traditionally made in cast iron kettles, hence the name, but in modern times other types of pots and pans are used.  Doesn’t that just sound yummy?!  Check out my huge bag, and I got TOW of them.

I accepted my own challenge of creating a bag topper for each bag, as stated above I am not that crafty at them. I knew I wanted it to look like a popcorn box, you know the old ones not the bags they have now.  Red and White Stripes with the word POPCORN!!!  Yes, I am showing my age now, but I digress.

Below are the measurements and Stampin’ Up! supplies I used to create my quick bag topper, and please check out the video for the how to.
