Teachers gift bags

Hello again... thanks so much to everyone who commented earlier - I went ahead and made my little batch of pudding cards, and I've got a few others done today too... getting there slowly!

Here are the gift bags I made for the boys to give to their teachers... 

They're not perfect, but for a first attempt I was fairly happy with them.  I used a template from My Time Made Easy, which would have been a lot easier with a machine to cut them on, but I never got the SCAL software working again on the Cricut after we got a new laptop.  So the Cricut has been boxed up and put in the loft for now... I quite fancy a Silhouette, but I don't suppose I really need one, and I'd probably end up not using that either!

Items Used
Template - Grab Bag - My Time Made Easy
Papers - Kraft Christmas & Woodland Wishes - LOTV
Sentiment tag stamps - LOTV (the blank tag from the Christmas set)
Brown flower - Prima Cabaletta Fall - MCH
Red flower - Bo Bunny Plum Purple Daisies - MCH
Pearls & velcro dots (to fasten) from my stash

I'm entering my bags for the following challenges
Papertake Weekly - Christmas card or project
Craft Your Passion - Christmas anything but a card
Crafting for all Seasons - anything Christmas but a card
Crafting by Designs - wrap it up
LOTV Monthly - anything but a card
(used LOTV papers & tag stamps - hope that's ok)

I'll be round for a little commenting catch up later... Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)
