Pebbles Design Team Blog Hop & Giveaway (and FREE gift bag die cut file)

Hi there!  I am super excited to be sharing my first Pebbles DT project with you today!  I love making gift bags and the versatile Pebbles Basics are perfect for creating a gift bag for any occasion.  Check it out: 


I die cut the bag and embellished it with washi tape handles, foam Thickers, and a variety of banner flags.  I made the washi tape handles by adhering two pieces of washi tape together.  Easy as pie! 


Pebbles Basics Chips come in a variety of colors and have different sentiments, but the best part is that the reverse sides are solid colors making them even more versatile.  I trimmed some chips and used the back side so I would only have thank you sentiments in my banner.  


I layered the banner flags with foam and sweetened the it up by adding some Candy Dots.  Yum!  

FREEBIE!  Click HERE to download a FREE .studio file for this gift bag.  (You need to have Silhouette Studio software to view the file.  If you are having trouble downloading or accessing the file, please send me a kind email and I will work out the kinks.)
