Christmas Gift Idea :: Reindeer Noses Sweetie Bags


These did not turn out quite how I wanted, mainly due to the shortage of red pom poms in my local Hobbycraft Store, coupled with the worlds most unhelpfull sales assistant to whom i asked "excuse me, do you have and more of these (point to tag) red pom poms" and she responded "we have just had a big delivery, if we do have any they could be anywhere" and walks off!!!! Shocking customer servie from a store who usually go out of their way to help... heres hoping she was only a festive temp!
Anyway I digresss.... I wanted red pom poms but had to improvise with some glitter foam which i die cut with the smallest nestabilities circle i had!


You may remember the noses sweets from THIS shopping bag saturday post


I have not done noses before, i think if i had some more time i would have made little antlers to go on the bag toppers but my stall is a week Monday so i am really pushed for time


I print the bag toppers on my little canon inkjet printer and then cut them out on my big shot express, I used Go Kreate Concentrics Frilly Square #1 die for the bag toppers, the largest die in the set of 4 fits perfectly on a 3"x5" cello bag


I cut the shape so i can see where i am cutting and then score in half, sticking the topper to the bag using my atg gun (double sided tape works well too)

Hope you like them
