Mixed media Monday

This weeks challenge theme is: Buttons~
With halloween right around the corner I thought I would make two gift bags for my grandkids. You can't tell it from the photos but the childrens images are 3 dimensional~I loved using buttons on bingo cards when I was younger. Sooooooooooo what better? Here is one of the bags...
and a close up of the little charm hanging from the bow~Here is the other bag~And the charm on that bag~Now, comes the fun part of filling them up with lots & lots of yummy candy-- last minute of course or else "Nana" will eat it!
