My Craft Spot's Mini Release Day 2~ Washi Tape

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hi Everyone and Welcome to Day 2 of My Craft Spot's Mini Release!
 Okay, wasn't yesterdays sneak peek fun?
Don't ya just love the new Rolled Flowers metal die....I can see so many possibilities! Definitely a great die to have in your craft room :)
 You are in for another fun day of inspiration!!
 Today we are showcasing the new
  Washi Tape  metal die :) 
Here is my project: 
I needed to make a gift bag for a little one who has a birthday coming up who will be 5. I started with cutting a couple mat which I layered up for the base. I then added a small panel which I added a border using a Martha Stewart punch. I tied on antique gold Jute string and tied a double bow and placed a fun enamel dot to the center from my sweet friend Carri
The adorable sock monkey is from SVG cutting files which was cut at 4.25 on my cameo. I embossed some of the layers with the tiny bubbles folder. I added cute little googly eyes that I had in my stash.  The monkey is holding a "5" which is stamped from the Chunky Alphabet stamp set and then fussy cut out and adhered down.
The washi tapes are cut and two of them placed in the left corner and one under the monkey. I inked the edges with memento rich cocoa ink and stamped the sentiments with the Banner SentimentsBirthday Wishes and the cupcake with the Chunky Alphabet. I tied bows to the handle with vanilla bean crinkle ribbon crinkle ribbon and antique gold Jute String.
Here are the new metal dies :)
