Hello Pebbles Friends! It is Leanne here today to share with you really cute, Father’s Day Gift Bag ideas. Using the We R Memory Keepers Gift Bag Punchboard and Pebbles Inc Simple Life Patterned paper collection, these gift bags came together quickly and with minimal fuss! Let’s get started!
step 1 | Gather your supplies
These gift bags measure 4.5″ tall. Trim a piece of patterned paper to 4.5″x10″ (per single bag).
Small pieces of coordinating patterned paper to embellish.
White and one other coordinating coloured Cardstock pieces.
Gift Bag punchboard.
Various shaped punches. I have used a 2″ circle and 1″ starburst punch.
step 2 | Base gift bag
Create your base for the gift bag, following the instructions as per the punchboard. Fold on the score lines but do not adhere together.
Shirtfront Gift Bag
step 3 | Embellish
To create the gift bag with the shirt front, trim a piece of coordinating patterned paper to 0.5″x 2.5″. Trim to form the collar of the shirt front, by notching a triangle from the bottom of the patterned paper. See sample above.
Trim two more tie shape pieces of paper from the same pattern.
step 4 | Add to the gift bag
Using a thin strip of white cardstock 10″x 0.5″, fold in half and overlap the top edge of the gift bag. This cardstock strip gives the gift bag a more polished look.
Add the “tie” to the front section of your gift bag. See image above. Use a foam dot to mount on the “knot” of the tie.
step 5 | Build the gift bag
Once the gift bag has been embellished to your satisfaction, finish building the gift bag as per the punchboard instructions. Adhere the sides and bottom of the bag securely.
step 6 | Braces and gift bag handles
Trim two thin strips of white cardstock to create the braces. Tuck the edges under the collar (see image above) and secure to the base of the bag. Add the handles by using two pieces of cardstock paper strips. Finish by slightly bending the tip of the tie outwards for a little dimension.
Dimensional Star Tag Gift Bag
step 1 | Punch or trim the shapes for your tag.
step 2 | Dimensional star
Trim/Punch a 2″ star shape. Score a line from each tip to the opposite valley. See image below (score lines are marked in pencil).
step 3 | Fold
Fold each score line: the longer lines form mountains and the shorter lines form valleys.
step 4 | Assemble
Layer the tag with the largest piece on the bottom. Add foam tape between each layer.
Finish by adding a small hole in the top of the tag and thread twine through the top and around the handle of the gift bag.
I hope these gift bags bring a smile to the recipients face when they are presented with their next Father’s Day offering! Thanks for visiting.
