Clip on the Witch Hat!

In my continuing quest to make lots of Halloween crafties for my church fair later this month - I made these Halloween treat bags for the Featured Stamper challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.
I was inspired by Featured Stamper Candee's Boo-made Treat bag . I have been wanting to make these cute little witch hats since the tutorial was posted over at Splitcoaststampers last week - instead of a printed treat bag like Candee used with her witch hats - I adhered pieces of patterned papers onto kraft bags - stamping on some of them. 
Here's a close up of these fun and easy witch hat clips.  I used a thicker sparkle card stock cutting the hat with 2" circle Nestability die with a 1" circle inside it (cutting like a donut).  You use the outside piece for the hat brim - and then cut 2 pieces 1 1/2" x 2".   Make a dot in the middle of the 1 1/2" edge and cut two triangles for the crown piece of the hat. You glue a tiny clothespin (up to 2") I used a small bow die by Lil Inker Designs for the bow.
Here's a view from the back - I stamped a spider hanging on it's web on the back of the bag and if I clip the hat right there on the side -it looks like it's hanging from the hat!
and a view of the tiny clothes pin inside that enables you to 'clip' it on!
These worked up really quickly, which I needed as I want to make several more!
