Guest Designer Top Dog Dies: Butterfly Finisher Dies

Today is my last day as a guest designer for Top Dog Dies.   Top Dog Dies is a new online store that offers their own brand of wafer-thin and steel-rule dies, along with dies from brands you already know and trust, including My Favorite Things, Lawn Fawn, Taylored Expressions, Savvy Stamps and Cheery Lynn Designs.  Top Dog Dies is also the leading U.S.  retailer for Tattered Lace, a new line of intricate dies designed by British designer Stephanie Weightman.

My project today uses Top Dog Dies Butterfly Finisher and Mini Tag Dies to create a custom-made gift bag.
I bought a plain burlap gift bag at Michaels and added my own Top Dog touches to make a gift bag that could be used for either a birthday, baby or a "just because" gift.  A cute gift bag makes even the simplest gift special.  I used the Top Dog Die Butterfly Finishers elegant scrolled detail die in both patterned paper and vellum.  I added the butterfly center, antennae and butterfly trail in glittery teal paper.  I used a paper punch for the scalloped border and added some pink gathered ribbon along the top.  The cute tags are from Top Dog Mini Tag Die Set and the cute butterfly is another die cut from the Butterfly Finishers Die set.  Our neighbor just had a baby girl and I think this bag will be a cute way to package the baby gift.

I would like to thank Meagan Morris of Top Dog Dies for inviting me to be a guest designer these last few weeks...I had a great time and really love the dies she sent me.
