Bags of goodies

I've been busy crafting again today - yay! Most of my family are into card making: me, my two sisters and my nan all do it but I'm probably the one that does it the most seriously and as such have lots of crafty bits, including a Big Shot die cutter which was my birthday present from last year. Because of this my nan asked me to do some rectangle and circle die cuts for my sisters to go into their Christmas stockings. Well, I couldn't just do a few die cuts and then give them to her in an envelope. No! I'd seen some people make little bag toppers for sweets so I decided to do the same. Here they are:

I punched along the card with a new MS punch, punched the little flowers and attached them with blue brads, a touch of yellow ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and finished off with a little sentiment. I even put on the bag 'handmade by Em's craft corner' :) I attached them to the bags with double sided tape. Such a simple gift and I'm really pleased with how they turned out. I know my nan will be thrilled with them and hopefully my sisters will too.

I'd like to enter these into the following challenges:
Leslierahye - August homemade gift challenge
Crafty Creations  - use 3 or more dies and punches
Cute Card Thursday - A Pinch and a Punch
Totally papercrafts - not a card
