"Under the Sea" party Favors

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing some party favors that I am making for my mom.  She goes to a water aerobics class and it is about to be over for the season.  They celebrate the year with a big luncheon.
This year my mom is in charge of the decorations and favors.  She asked me to come up with an idea and then we will get together to make them. This is what I came up with.  I am hoping the circles look like scales on a mermaid tail :)

I used the  1 inch circle punch to create the scales.  I also made sure to use up a lot of the smaller scraps of cardstock that I have been collecting. I choose various shades of color and never had to cut a new sheet of cardstock! I love it when I can use up my scraps, and that made the project less expensive.  I used the Ticket Tear Border punch for the band around the bag. It helped give a nice clean look to the scales. The Ticket border punch is on the Clearance rack right now.
I also threw in a shinny scale every now and then just for fun. It made me think of the Rainbow Fish book! Do you know that one? I think I have it memorized, my son asked for that one a lot!

The bags are a nice size, not too big that it takes a lot to fill them, but not too small that you don't have options.  I made sure that they could be filled with either candy or something bigger like some lotions or things like that.
