More Favor Bags

Howdy!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  I have been a bit busy crafting.  And I want to share the last two trios of favor bags.  ~ a little back story: I am hosting Bunco at my house this week.  And I need 12 favor bags.  But not all of these ladies like pink.  Shocking, I know.  And I know that variety is the spice to life.  So, I have made 12 different, but similar favor bags, so each lady can choose which bag she would like.
I used pattern paper I already had on hand, as well as the paper bags that are on the inside.   I tried to keep close to the same layout, and use the same label.  That way, they all look like they belong, but still have their own character.  So, without further ado, here are the last 2 sets:

For this trio, i used crumb cake card stock by Stampin' Up! for the front and back panels.  I added paper blossoms, pearls, vintage buttons, and various crochet trim, and machine stitching.  I really love the mix of pattern papers I selected for this trio.  I think it fun and funky.  {smile}

For this trio I used garden green card stock by Stampin' Up! for the front and back panels.  I wanted to bring out the green in the floral pattern paper.  I thought the mix of polka dots and flourishes added to the over-all feminine look of the bags.  I used tag shapes to hold the antique gold embossed labels. I used various paper blossoms, vintage buttons, and crochet trims, again.  I added machine stitching and pearls to soften the over-all look.

Thank you for stopping by.  i am working on a fabric strip wreath now.  I'll photograph it and give a quick tutorial once I'm done.  I'm also making scallop envelopes to hold a tea bag for each place setting.  I'll photograph that, too.  {smile}   
I'm starting to get a bit nervous and anxious for my party.  I just want everything to be beautiful and perfect.  {fingers crossed}
