CAS-ual Fridays Stamps: July Sneak Peek #3

Are you ready for the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Sneak Peek #3?!

It's a 3rd new die in the Fri-Dies collection, the Oval Tags Die!
It comes with two pieces, the large oval tag die plus a smaller oval and an offset oval ring.
Isn't it fun?! The possibilities for using this are endless.

Check out the store blog to see the super creative ways the rest of the designers used it 
and leave a comment for a chance to win it yourself!

For my Ovals Tag project, I made a little thank you gift pouch using the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps set Big Thanks. See that turquoise for the big tag? I used some of the tissue paper that Michele uses when shipping out CAS-ual Fridays Stamps! See, it pays to be a packrat and save everything! hehe! I glued the pink oval ring down on the tissue, then applied the "Big Thanks" oval with foam dots for a little extra dimension.

To make the pouch, I cut two pieces of clear Hambly overlay and one piece of white cardstock to  3 1/8" x 4 1/4", but you could do any size. I stamped the long "Thank You" sentiment on the white cardstock in different colors, then layered all three pieces and sewed it around three sides, leaving the top open. I don't think my little Janome Mini sewing machine *liked* it but it got through it okay!  Below is a picture of the back side. You could put all kinds of little gifts or treats in here.

Since my tag was made from tissue paper and I was using a wide grosgrain ribbon 
through the top of it, I did reinforce the opening with a little white cardstock ring, 
shown below. I used a 1/2" and a 3/4" circle punch, and it worked great!

I hope you enjoyed this Sneak Peek!
