Cocoa gift Sacks

lately I have been spend more time in the craft salers thread at scs and there was a link on pinterest to MishMash's blog with some sacks that had twine and do dads on them. then there was a link in the scs thread to a blog with cards that had cocoa packs and fancy peppermint stir sticks tied on to them. and I thought both ideas were kinda neat, but didn't think much of it again until I came across this pack of starbucks cocoa at Costco the other day. There are 3 boxes
of flavors with 8 packs of each flavor in the whole shrink wrapped bundle. Will I make 24 of these? Probably not, but will be making a few more. (esp. in the flavors I know i will not drink) :)
So these are just paper sacks from M's that had the tops I used pinking shears on them free hand and then added mini glue dots to the inside gussets so they would adhere to the back of the bag, there is a bit of basket type filling in them with the packets then the tags are tied on with baking twine and or ribbons. this particular tag is an Penny Black snowman and the sentiments from Gina K. Designs. That doily is an actual heart shaped one I trimmed it to fit inside the bag.
Spellbinders this years shape ornament die cuts from scraps, paper trey ink ric rac die cut also done from scraps. the tag was sprayed with some tattered angels glimmer and walnut ink.
vintage buttons and hemp string. the sentiments from SU on an Sizzix die cut tag.
This was the first one and its a little plain and the staples make it a little more rustic to me I guess, it went together really really quick.
Prima flowers, doodle but brad, Impression Obsession Sentiment.
