We’re always looking for great ways to dress up a basic. Today Designer Juliana Michaels is sharing a collection of fun gift bag tags she made using the Garden Party collection.
Hello and Happy Spring! When I was first asked to create a project using some of the Pebbles frames and tags, the first thing that came to mind was a banner. I quickly dismissed this idea, because we’ve had some awesome banners shared already on the Pebbles blog by the Pebbles Design Team and decided to keep brainstorming.
I finally settled on the idea of creating a set of Garden Party gift bags using the new Special Delivery Baby Girl Printed Bags and some frames and tags from the Garden Party Cardstock Die Cuts pack.
How to decorate the bags:
Create a base piece by cutting a piece of patterned paper to 4″ x 5″. Ink the edges.
Cut a 3″ x 4″ band from patterned paper. Ink the edges and then center this piece horizontally on the base piece.
Use a sewing machine to stitch a border around the outside edge.
Select one of the die cut frames and cut a piece of patterned paper to fill the opening.
Select a die cut shape and attach it to the front of the frame with dimensional foam tabs.
Add sentiment sticker.
Attach embellished frame to patterned paper base with dimensional foam tabs.
Cut two 9″ lengths of jute and tie into a small bow. Attach to frame with Mini Clothespin.
Attach completed piece to front of bag.
Repeat this process using other frame and tag shapes from the Garden Party Cardstock Die Cuts pack.
I think these would be perfect to use as gift bags for a spring themed Garden or Tea Party. Can’t you just see them filled with a packet of seeds or some of your favorite flavors of tea?
