Pebbles Inc reveal...

Over the last week, the Pebbles Inc design team have been showcasing Christmas gift ideas, cards, Christmas wrapping etc and there's some beautiful projects there! Check out what the rest of the DT have come up with here.

I created these little gift boxes for the kids to give to friends. Each box uses only 6"x4" of patterned paper, so very economical and easy to make. They are perfect for little treats! I have used Pebbles Inc's green spot PP from the Lil' Buddy range and the red "eyelet" pp from the Linnie Bell range. I have also used Pebbles Inc ribbons and chipboard.
To recreate these boxes yourself; cut rectangles of patterned paper to measure 6"x4", then place tape on one short side (A) and the two long sides of the rectangle (C & D). Adhere A to B to create a tube (similar in size and shape to a toilet roll). Remove tape from C and press together to seal the end. Fill with lollies or other smalls treats, then turn project 90 degrees, remove tape from D and seal end. I have run the ends through a paper crimper to add more detail.


Once you've got the basic shape, dress them up with some ribbon, chipboard shapes and/or tags and they are ready to go! For something so small, they are definitely a hit with the kids.

This week on the Pebbles Inc blog, the DT will be sharing projects that take less than 30 minutes to create! We're all pressed for time at the pointy end of the year, and these projects will get you creating in the little time you have available!

Ciao for now, Lis.
