Card 1- Attach the white embossed paper to the front of the small blue card that you've folded. Attach the ribbon trim (start with one edge and retain the extra for the tag shown below), I used a bead of white glue. Then trim off the edges with scissors. Trim the sentiment and cut edges to point add ink if desired. Attach the sentiment (I used a pop dot). Add the small heart die cut. This card has a white insert and a clear envelope.
Card 2 - Attach the pink criss cross patterned paper. Attach the two die cut shaped circles ( I attached mine with a pop dot). Trim sentiment and add ink if desired. Attach to card. Cut a small piece of twine (you'll be using the rest for the tag) unravel the twine and use a section to thread through the button and tie in a knot. I attached my button with hot glue.
