To start my project i measured the front of my little white bag and cut a smaller mat in turquoise
paper. Then i cut another piece of printed flower paper just a bit smaller and glued all of it to the front of the bag to dry. For the Happy Birthday medallion i cut the letters in white card stock and set them aside and then cut 2 circles using a metal die. One in white vellum and the other in the same turquoise that i did the first mat in. I glued all of them together with adhesive and then added a few rhinestones, the sentiment and a pretty adhesive flower on the bottom that i had in my stash to match. And finally to finish it i tied some pretty ribbons to the handle on the top and it's ready to stuff with a wonderful gift for my friend.
Here is a closeup so that you can see the die better. I really love the swirls on this one and how pretty that they overlap on each other. And here is the link to the store just in case you need to add this beauty to your shopping list "Happy Birthday Die".... Have a wonderful and creative day!!
