My Baby Sister's Numbers Match Today...

My baby sister is 33 today, how time flies, I do very clearly remember the day she was born...  my family worked together to give her a sewing themed birthday... her first sewing machine, a box full of sewing necessities... a good expensive pair of fabric scissors, the type that need their own case... she is a little "rustic", so I thought a felt case with raw edges would be to her liking, and I dressed it up with the totally fabby MFT Rolled Daisy, pressed out in felt, with a HUGE rhinestone in the centre... this sits over velcro, in my experience, the best closure for a case of this nature....

The tag was inspired by this month's MFT Guest DT Challenge to add A Touch of Texture to a project.... lots of die cutting with a good mix of their Die-namics, with a mixture of patterned paper, card, and felt in the layers under the sentiment.... and then for the swing tag I used two ends of a border punch and pulled them through my Xyron before adhering them together and threading some ribbon through... I thought we might just give her this... and send her on a little hunt for the bigger boxes... a bit of bright birthday fun...

I hope you like!
