This bag topper was fun. They always sing the make new friends song at the end of their meetings. You know the one I'm talking about, "Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the others gold. A circle's round, it has no end, that's how long I want to be your friend." The stamp set has part of the Make new friends poem. It is from the retired Close To My Heart clear set called Make New Friends. I also thought it would be fun to use one silver brad and one gold one to hold the topper closed. To tie in the song, I bet the girls won't even notice that I did that and I don't think you can see it in the picture either.
I filled these bag toppers with stamped Hershey Nuggets. I stamped on labels and wrapped them around the nuggets. I buy the labels at Walmart, Target or Walgreens. They are in the pen isle usually. I buy the 1 x 3 inch labels. I buy my baggies at Joann's. They come in a 100 pack for $1.50 in the jewelry/bead isle. You can also find them at Walmart in their jewelry/bead isle. They are 3 x 4. The topper is cut 4 x 3 1/4 and score at 2 inches on the 4 inch side. So when you fold it the dimensions are 2 x 3 1/4. The mat is 1 7/8 x 3 1/8 and the stamped piece is 1 3/4 x 3
