4th of July Treat Bags | Pebbles, Inc.


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:
