Good morning! Today I wanted to share a project I created for the Pebbles, Inc. blog. It’s a quick and easy little project I whipped up to share some fun patriotic treats with some of my favorite neighbors! I love sharing a little surprise gift at random times, but when there's a holiday or reason for celebration, it's even a BETTER time to share! I used the Gift Bag Punch Board (from We R Memory Keepers) and the "Americana" collection to create this fun little set of gift bags.
I love the versatility of the gift bag board. I used the "large" size marking for all three of these bags, but made each one a different height.
I also like adding a contrasting band across the top of each of the bags. Here's a closer look at the tops:
But the third bag band doesn't match the inside. I thought the pattern was a little too large for the top band. So instead, I opted to cut a strip from a coordinating paper and glue it to the paper before making the bag.
Both techniques are really easy and add a fun bit of contrast to the bags. After creating the bags, simply add a few coordinating embellishments to the bag fronts, then fill them up with yummy treats to share! Happy 4th of July!! :)
