Millinery Cards & Cute Felt Bags

I recently found these Easter cards in my "Correspondence" box.  I made these several years ago. The basic card is so simple, just a folded piece of purplish paper.  No embossing, no rounded corners, no stamping. The envelope was made using a tiny template of some kind.  And, I'm almost sure, the teeny tiny tag was made on the computer and then hand cut. 
I think the fanciest thing about the card is the little brad I attached to the tag.  I guess that was a big technique back in the day.  I thought the carrots were a sweet addition, but a little hard to mail in a flat envelope.  I picked them up at the craft store in the millinery section.
These are two little gift bags I put together with some Easter treats, including the bunny notepad, some chocolate and a little pillow box filled with jellybeans.  These bags are from Michael's.  At $1.00/each they were just too cute to pass up and much cheaper when you count supplies + time on my budget than homemade.  Sometimes homemade doesn't win.

Just finished making 20 Mickey and Minnie Mouse goody bags for a birthday party. The idea is to have a candy bar and each guest gets to fill up his or her bag with their choice of candy. click for more info
