Hey everyone! Suzanne here to share a gift/party idea project that came together fairly quick. I’ve used some very beautiful papers from Pebbles and Authentique to create a Fourth of July themed treat bag and card.
I love the “kraft” printed papers from both of these lines….they coordinate together very nicely.
The card was really quick and easy to create. The base is a piece of kraft carstock that I’ve rounded (all edges) with a corner rounder tool. The center of the card is actually a manila shipping tag that is covered with canvas fabric and cotton batting. I glued the tag to the batting and sewed the canvas fabric on top.
I must admit, this isn’t my original idea (fabric tag). The very talented Tammy Tutterow posted a tutorial on her blog giving step by step detail on how to dye muslin fabric (this step was included) and I was inspired to give this portion a go! I’m so glad I did because the fabric tag adds so much texture to the card! The star was cut from a piece of Fourth of July themed Reminsce paper that I had to “grunge” up a bit with Colorbox Cat’s Eye Chalk inks (Chestunut Roan and Creamy Brown) so that it would match the other papers. All rosettes were created using both lines-Authentique and Pebbles. I added a coordinating button and a Tim Holtz memo pin and that’s it!
I cut the bag with the Tags Bags and more Cricut cartridge using the window option. The clear window is simply a piece of transparency cut to size. The “banner” is a piece of Pebbles printed paper backed with canvas fabric.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this project and been inspired to try your hand at some Fourth of July gift giving/party ideas!
