Hello Pebbles fans! It’s Monique here sharing a quick and easy “Forever My Always” project created for “Gratitude Week” here on Pebbles blog. Most of the time when I’m someone very grateful I want to bring a gift. Here in The Netherlands that gift is often a bunch of flowers, but once in a while I want to give something else, like for example a gift card. So, for today I decided to create a little gift bag for a gift card. As I had been waiting for an opportunity to use the fantastic Forever My Always collection I decided now was the time! Here’s what I created:
I started my project by selecting a two patterned papers from the Forever My Always collection plus the gold dotted cardstock and using my Silhouette I cut three gift card bags (3″x 4 1/4″):
Next I folded the bags, but didn’t glue them together just yet. I wanted to use my tiny attacher to adhere the embellishments on the front of the gift bag and that’s easier when the gift bag isn’t glued closed on three sides. I used a few more of the beautiful Forever My Always patterned papers, a couple of Forever My Always die-cuts and two of the Heart of Home tag labels:
When the embellishing of the front of the gift bag was done I glued the sides together using some American Crafts double-sided sticky red tape and the gift card bag was finished. Super easy and quick! Here are the gift bags one by one:
Isn’t the Forever My Always collection awesome?! I can’t wait for an opportunity to play some more with it.
