Sweet little tags & Labels (Kits for sale)

Are these little tags not the cutest thing? I think the distressing gives them such a vintage look, and that's just what I am calling them for my Kit that will be for sale in my Etsy Shop.
Vintage Tag Sweet Treats Gift Tags.
(I will have them in my store shortly)

I made some really yummy candy for someone who is in the hospital having double hip replacement. Although I don't think they have much of an appetite right now, it's always great to feed the nurses so they keep you well taken care of.

Below you will see that I packaged it up in a couple of different ways-in a brown bag and glassine bag with a close pin closure.
Both times I stamped the dotted square from the Tasty treats right on the bag (when you stamp on the glassine bag you need to let it dry or use a craft heater to dry it.)
Supplies from Close to My Heart-
Colonial White Cardstock
Cocoa Ink
Blush ink
Bamboo ink
Desert Sand ink
Blush ribbon
foam tape
blush ric-rac
Assorted markers
flowers and pearls
brown bag
glassine bag
tags and index cards

Recipe for the yummy treats-
Salted Pecan & Heath Bar Squares
* 12 graham crackers
* 6 Heath bar candy bars
* 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans
* 1/2 cup sugar
* 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
* 3/4 cup chocolate chips
* 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place graham crackers in a single layer on sheet. Sprinkle candy bars (chopped) and pecans over graham crackers.
2. In a small saucepan, bring sugar and butter to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and cook at a rapid simmer, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Immediately pour over graham crackers. Bake until sugar topping is bubbling, about 12 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate and salt over graham crackers. Cut into 2-inch squares.
