Glassine Decorated Gift Bag

Hello everyone, today I want to share a decorated Glassine Gift Bag I made for The Scrapping Cottage Using the Beautiful CottageCutz Dies and LOTS of Really Reasonable Ribbon!
So first thing I did was pick my dp, and I chose to go with the DCWV Be Mine Stack, this is another Stack I picked up at the DCWV 1.00 Warehouse sale. I sued it for the background ,the Beautiful is also from the dp, and I added some Silky Crush ribbon and lace to this. Next I glued everything on with my FAVORITE glue I call it "Heaven in a Bottel" its Helmars Premium Craft Glue,450 Quick Dry, and Liquid Scrap Dots! LOVE them all!

I used LOTS of CottageCutz dies on this, as I LOVE LOVE LOVE my CottageCutz dies, and you can never have too many of these BEAUTIFUL Dies!!
Here is a list of what CottageCutz I used:

CottageCutzPennants Plain

Other supplies used:

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Build-a-Butterfly! you can double layer,triple layer like I did here! I used 2 of the big pieces of the butterfly and then 1 of the smaller for the fancy wings. I thought making it 
3-D with Helmar's Scrap dots was perfect, now the wings will stay out like shown in my picture. I distressed the edges too. the Dp i used on the bag is what I also used for the Butterfly, and its listed above as well.

The Flower Mini was cut using the same dp, and then distressed the edges with tim holtz antique linen. I added some pearls to the centers.
