Top Note Bag Toppers

I have seen cards all over the internet using these and other designs.  I made some of them the other day with a customer/friend.  I'll get them posted asap.  Most are made with the Top Note Die.  My friend Dixie needed some bag topper ideas.  I created these using the card ideas.

Close Ups

The snowman hat is half of a top note with a 4 1/2" wide band.  I hand cut the carrot.  The bird is from the die in the Holiday mini.  The "coal" are 1/4" punches.
The green guy's hat was a little more than an inch in height.  The trim on his hat is made with the Scallop Edge punch.  Punch one long edge.  Cut the strip 3/4" wide.  Punch the other side by lining up the scallops.  His nose is 1/2" circle with two 1/4" punches out of it.  His eyes are 1/2" circles.

The reindeer's antlers are from a Sizzix swirly die with flowers. I sponged the edges of the face.
The penguin is for Rhonda's daughter who loves penguins.  The beak and wings are the smal Oval punch.   Both of their eyes are 1/2" circles.

On the penguin, how did you get the white face smaller than the black background?
