My new favorite die....

this week, is the Sizzix "In the Bag" by Tim Holtz.  I've been eyeing this one at the store, and I finally gave in.  Notice how I said this week? It's so hard to be good when every week all these boxes of wonderful things are delivered!

What's really cool about this die, is that it's a Movers & Shapers die.  That means you can use any of your small Movers & Shapers mini dies inside either side of the bag as cut outs. 

 Here's a project I did:

I used Kaisercraft's "Tigerlilly" collection for this bag and tag.  I love anything with butterflies, and this collection is covered with them.  I used the Movers & Shapers mini Butterfly die on the bag front and the Sizzix Tim Holtz Tag die for the tag inside the bag.  I just cut it down to fit inside.

The stamped butterfly is from a Stamper's Anonymous Tim Holtz stamp set, Papillon.  I think this little bag would make great thank-you gifts or teacher's gifts.  You could attach a coffee card or gift card to the tag inside.  If you cover the cut out hole with clear plastic, it could be filled with candy and sealed at the top.  Wouldn't it be cute to give out at Halloween?  I think I'm going to be using this one a lot!  The best part is, it's quick and easy to make a fast gift.
Until next time!
