      Create an identical rectangle directly below it

      In each box type what you want in and add any pictures, clip art, etc

      Do the same in the second box

      Flip/Rotate your wording and pictures so when you print and fold the paper in half it reads correctly

      Before printing make sure you get rid of you shape outline or add a border if you like

      Print and cut to desired size

      Fold in half (I used a boning tool to get a sharp edge)

       

      To attach I placed the topper over my bag and used a hole punch to create holes on each side of the bag and then secured each side with a brad.

        Avery actually makes kits that include bags and toppers. I saw them at Staples this week and they are on sale!

        Probably still more expensive than the DIY, but kits certainly make it easy! I have not checked on prices elsewhere.

            I made my on Powerpoint and then uploaded the image to Vistaprint. I borrowed MJKH's idea as it was wonderful!! When using Powerpoint you will create different text boxes and then you can rotate the one box so when you fold both sides are right side up. If you want I can send you my template when I get home from work.
