Valentine's Week: Tag Topper Goodie Bags

Happy Valentine's Day!  
Hope you enjoyed all the Valentine's inspiration this week.  
Today we're wrapping up with a quick and easy way to make a goodie bag topper using a tag.  You can use any tag or cut your own using a die or an electronic cutter.  I'm using the standard 3 1/8" x 6 1/4" tag which I diecut from red cardstock using the Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations "Tag & Bookplates" die.
Directions:
 Using a scoreboard, score and fold your tag as shown in photo above.
 Glue the side (closest to hole) of the mountain between the two folds and press to the top of the tag.
 Cut a square of coordinating paper for the front of the tag.  Decorate as you like and add a ribbon or cord through the tag hole.
 Fill a cellophane goodie bag (up to 3" in width) with treats.  Roll down the top of the bag, secure and then attach to the inside of remaining tag flap.  I used double sided tape.
 Pass out the bags and watch the smiles!
