For my project, I've made a tri-fold tag shaped card for my friend's daughter, Nikki, who just graduated from high school.  We've known them for about 14 years, all through the Air Force (our husband's have worked together at a few bases, one of which is Hawaii, so I felt I had to add one of those gorgeous Hibiscus die-namics!).  I started by taking the largest of the Traditional Tags STAX and marking lines with a pencil just inside the die so that when I ran it through my machine, it wouldn't cut on both sides (which would've left me with three separate tags!).  I then scored along the pencil lines, folded the paper, then ran it through with the STAX.  It cut through two layers easily and left enough of a mark on the third layer that I barely had to snip it to get the excess paper off.  Seriously easy!!!  Then...  I just started having fun layering die-namics {I've used just about every new die-namic and STAX!}!!!  The sentiment on the front is from the Inspired by Travel set and was cut out using the Fishtail Flags STAX.  Totally appropriate for a young girl going away to college in a couple of months!  The Hibiscus die-namic {SWOON} and the Hexagon die-namics {ADORE} dress it up.


On the inside, I've used more of the Traditional Tags STAX, along with the Designer Labels 2 STAX, the Square STAX and the Star STAX!!!  "Well Done" is from the Soldier Boy PI set.  "So Proud of You" is from the Godspeed - Who's That Girl/Guy set.  And yep, I broke out the shrinky dinks and made a little license plate using the Vanity License Plate die-namics and stamp set!  How fun!  And I'm sure Nikki will love it!  I used the Notched Border die-namic to dress up the Square STAX, which I left blank so we could write her a little note.  I only adhered three sides of the square, leaving the top open so we could add her gift. ;)  And yes, that is the mustache from the Masculine Graphic Tee stamp set!  I couldn't resist adding it because Nikki and her friends just love playing around with fake mustaches!  Teenage girls!  Ha!  She is such a fun and bright young lady and I know she'll have many successes in life!  I used one of the Mini Tabs Foursome die-namics to cut out another sentiment from the Inspired by Travel set.


Here you can see all three sides...
