Assembly:

First, I printed the bag toppers using a free design site called Avery.com.  They have hundreds of templates.   Simply log in or sign-up for an account, decide on what template you want to use, design your project, and print. You can use any image they have or your own.  Create any saying you want for the back of the bag toppers.

I used white, plain card stock for my bag toppers for added stability. I attached the bag toppers with a stapler.

How to Create the Bag Toppers:

  • Go to Avery.com and sign up for an account or if you have one already, just sign in.
  • Click on “Design & Print Online” (Left-hand side of page)
  • Click on “View All
  • On the new page, click on “Cards & Tags
  • Scroll down until you see “Printable Bag Toppers” (Product number 22801)
  • Highlight it and at the top of the page, click “Next
  • On the new page, click on “Blank & Text Only” (Left-hand side of page)
  • The “Blank Bag Topper” will be highlighted. Click “Next
  • On the new page, you can design your bag topper.
  • When you have the front of the bag topper designed the way you want it. You will see it on the right-hand side of the page.
  • You are able to click on that hand-hand picture for the “back” of the bag topper. You then are able to design the back-side of the bag topper.
  • To get the images, you can use what they provide or you can upload your own image.
  • For the sayings, I had to type my own in.

    It is not a good idea to tell children that chocolate is medication, even if it is something fictitious like “grinch pills”. Parents who do this are setting their children up to ingest actual medication because they expect it to taste like chocolate.

    • Denise says

      No child is going to confuse these make-believe “pills” with the real thing. If there is any doubt, tell them it is make believe like their toy cars and dolls and the only thing it does is taste good. Chocolate makes you smile. Period.
