Hi Everyone!

Hope that you have been enjoying the sneak peek releases from this month's awesome stamp sets from Taylored Expressions! Today, I am peeking a the stamp set Oops A Daisy designed by the amazing Nancy McKinney and coordinates with 4 dies that makes it easy to cut out these gorgeous flowers (the flowers are both open and closed so that you can choose to color them in or stamp solid images). 

I used the open flowers and cut it out with the coordinating die and then colored them in gently with some gray copics. I thought it would be nice to create a set of happy birthday gift tags that someone can use when they give birthday presents. After making the tags, I decorated a Clear Topped Hinge to store the tags. 
I used some MME paper (Miss Caroline Dilly Dally) for the tags - love these sweet papers - and then added some vellum butterflies and the sentiment: Happy Birthday. Here is picture of the top of the box:

I layered the outside and inside of the box so that you couldn't see the adhesive on the clear side :

I layered the three tags with different papers from the same paper pad and kept the layout the same. for all three cards. I finished the tags off with a large eyelet and then added some ribbon and liquid pearls:
Here is a closer peek at the three different tags: It was fun pairing the different pieces of DP all todether:
