2 Die-cut a piece of patterned paper with the second die in the set, glitter the edges with Diamante Sparkle Sparkelicious then matt onto the card front.
3 Die-cut the fifth die in the set from white cardstock, then place in the Cut & Emboss folder and run through your die-cutting machine.
4 Blend Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink over the embossed flowers. Glitter the outer edges with Glass Slipper Sparkelicious, the embossed flowers with Diamante Sparkle and the leaves and swirls with Grasshopper. Leave to dry.
5 Cut the Blossoming Medley folder twice more, colour with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink and fussy-cut out. Add glitter as before and attach to the card front using 3D glue gel.
6 Add Glass Slipper Sparkelicious to the small flowers, snip them out and affix to the card front, adding jewels to the centre of the flowers.
7 Die-cut a frame from aquamarine matt mirror card using dies 4 and 6, attach to the Blossoming Medley topper using 3D foam pads and secure to the card front.
8 Glitter the large jewel with Grasshopper Sparkelicious, tie and attach a ribbon bow and add a jewel to the top-right corner.

Cricut 12×12” standard-grip cutting mat, Scoring Stylus, black pen & tool set
white, black & grey cardstock
PVA adhesive
double-sided tape
3D foam pads
golf tees
clear plastic treat bag

1 Connect the machine to your chosen device and log on to your Design Space™ account and open a new project. Search for and select the ‘Golf Tee Treat Bag’ project from the cards category of the project library.
2 The project makes a bag topper/wrapper measuring 7.5x15cm (3×6”). To resize the project, click ‘customise’. Resize as desired.
3 Follow the on-screen prompts to cut the card layers from the required cardstock, inserting the scoring stylus and pen into the accessory port A.
4 Carefully remove the images from the cutting mat using the spatula, slowly bending the mat away from the image.
5 Use the scraper tool as a bone folder to create a strong crease on the two topper layers. Glue them and the tag layers together.
6 Fill a treat bag with golf tees. Use double-sided tape to secure the topper over the top of the bag sealing it. Attach the tag to the topper using 3D foam pads.

Also this issue you’ll find step-by-step guides to the latest die-cutting techniques, projects from your favourite die-cutting brands and much, much more!
