Top Note Die Easter Treats

I am getting ready for another Craft Fair this Saturday, and making treat bags is a must.  Last year I sold out of the little peep bags so I thought I would do them again this year, as well as the bunny bags, both made with the Top Note Bigz Die and small cellophane bags. 

Both bags started with a cut Top Note Die piece.  For the peep bag, the eyes were created by punching  with the 1" and 1 1/4" Circle punch, and cutting the circles in half.  The nose is a corner of the Extra Large Star Punch.  I made small slits for the eyes with the uni-ball Signo Gel Pen.  Holes were punched through both the Top Note piece and the cellophane bag with the Crop-a-Dile and tied together with 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon.  I added a Happy Easter sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set.  I purchased peeps in 5 different colors, and I made the Top Note Piece to coordinate with the color of the peep.  When they are all put together in a large basket they are really colorful, and brighten up the table. 

The bunny bag was also embossed with the Perfect Polka Dot folder for added dimension, and the bunny was stamped with Chocolate Chip ink and then punched with the 1 1/4" Square Punch and then layered over a punched Scallop Square.  This bag was tied together using Daffodil Delight 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon.  The Happy Easter sentiment on this bag is from a retired stamp set, but I loved it so much that I couldn't part with it.  It was punched out with the Scallop Oval punch.
