Skirtin' Around- Wedding Tag

As with any purchase I make I ask my myself how versatile will this be?  Unless I can think up multiple uses I won't get it.  Certainly the Grass die (Tapered Fringe) fit this for me.  I really like it...so now to challenge myself on how to use it.
 
What to do with this grass die? Make it a WEDDING DRESS!  Shut the Front Door...layers of tissue cut with this die makes for a great dress.  Oh those middle of the night inspirations!

But first, the tag.  I sprayed my tag with Adhesive and glued some heavy duty tin foil.  Then embossed with the new French Script folder.  I painted gold, sanded then heat some UTEE.  Seriously, so pretty!


I cut and layered tissue with Tapered Fringe, starting at the bottom of the Sewing Room Dress Form die.  I also glued the matching tissue to the dress form.  I'm going for a monochromatic look here.


To achieve a "bust" I simply glued a little cotton then folded the tissue over it.  I tied and glued the gold bow, then hot glued this old metal button of my grandmother's.


Layering the 2 small Tattered Floral flowers cut with Oven Liner.  I embossed and inked the larger flowers, layering 3x.  Curl the tips for a fluffy look.


I cut a little banner and stamped "Always & Forever" from TH Simple Sayings, attaching with the Tiny Attacher.  Along the bottom is some Tinsel, heated and inked with more gold paint.

 
This Wedding Tag is a challenge for me to find a new way to use my new Grass die (Tapered Fringe;)  I might attach the tag to a card or simply drape it over my favourite bottle of
French Wine as a wedding gift:o)
 
I would like to know your thoughts on what you would use the Grass die for?
