Happy Birthday Gift Bag Tag

Transform an ordinary gift bag into an extraordinary bag that says "wow" by layering die-cut & letter-pressed shapes with the Fuse Creativity System®.


  1. Trim a dotted patterned paper to measure 3.5" x 8.5". Optional: Mini-scallop one short edge with paper-edger scissors.
  2. Adhere the dotted paper vertically centered on the front of the gift bag as shown. If you scalloped one short edge, make sure the scalloped edge matches with the pinked-edge top of the bag opening.
  3. Run a piece turquoise paper through the Fuse system using the scalloped circle die and the inked plate. With a fingertip detail knife, carefully cut out the inner sections of each gift box image, creating "windows." Apply foam adhesive on the back.
  4. Adhere a 4.25" green glitter cardstock circle behind the turquoise die shape. You should be able to see the glitter cardstock through the front "windows."
  5. Add a dimensional sentiment sticker to the die shape.
  6. Cut two 1.25" x 3" strips of yellow paper. Cut a V-notch on each strip end using a pair of scissors. Adhere the yellow strips behind the die shape as shown.
  7. Punch a small hole at the top of the die shape, string a piece of ribbon, and tie it around one of the bag handles.
