Happy Birthday Card and Gift

I am an assistant high school volleyball coach.  The other person I coach with had a birthday on Saturday so I wanted to make her a little something.  I had baked cookies using the Special Events sweet pressed cookie stamp sets over the weekend and all I had to do was make a cute tag to close the bag with!  I put the cookies in our medium flat cello bags.  I created the tag by stamping the 3rd largest image from Daydream Medallions.

 I then stamped "a gift for you" from Bring on the Cake
Bring on the Cake - Clear-Mount Stamp - Clear-Mount Stamp Set - by Stampin' Up!
I used the coordinating die cuts from Floral Frames Framelits Dies to run the whisper white and DSP from Howlstooth and Scaringbone through the big shot.  I used snail adhesive to put the flowers together than tied the ribbon around the bag with white bakers twine.  This is a simple gift that doesn't take much time to make.

Of course I needed a card to go with the cookies though and here's what I came up with.
I saw this card on by Christine Kokiw and wanted to try it.  I just love how simple but neat this card looks.  This was a simple card to make that doesn't require a lot of supplies that could be adapted for other occasions.  I'm thinking of trying this out for thank you cards.
