Valentine Treat Bags

I'm so glad I made these tags back in January.  I used them to embellish treat bags I made for Valentine's Day!

My favorite part of this has to be the bow!  And the tag.  Here's a close up detailed picture of the bow!

The topper is die cut from SU! Cherry Cobbler using the Top Note die.  These were originally going to be paper bag I had punched out handles with SU! Large Oval Punch.  Then, after I cut a lunch bag down to size, I realized that the bags were too wide for the die cut.  AFTER I had oval punched 16 top note die cuts.  Oh boy!  

I had some small flat cellophane bags from SU! I scored the top note die cuts and attached them to the bags with sticky strip.  Then I punched another oval through all layers.  Now my treat bags have a handle!    After I filled the bags, I added another piece of sticky strip.  Tied on a bow with the very lucious 1 1/4" Real Red Striped Grosgrain from SU!  I used a whole roll!  Now I can buy more! 

Here's the back.

I used some of the Raven Lace from SU! on the tag and attached all that with a black mini library clip (from SU!).  I made 15 treat bags.  Not all of them had the tags, as I only had 8 of the tags.

Here's my...ahem...helper.

These were a hit!  DS received one.  DH received one.  DS gave away 6.  I took 7 to give to co-workers.  It didn't take long to make...only about...most of the day.  LOL.  It was fun and I think they turned out oh so gorgeous! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a moo-valous day!
