Good morning Pebbles friends! It’s Wendy Sue here today, sharing a quick and easy “Fun in the Sun” gift project! I don’t know about your kids, but at my house, about a week after school gets out for the summer, the “I’m bored syndrome” hits. I’ve decided to keep things fun and interesting this summer, so we’re going to make a list of fun things to do each week. One of those fun things will be to visit the local sno-cone shop(s). I thought it would be fun to buy a gift card for each of the kiddos and give it to them in a super cute little popsicle shape box. So I got busy and put together the boxes over the weekend – I just have to purchase the gift cards and tuck them inside…then icy cold goodness awaits!
The popsicle shaped boxes are a cut file available from the Silhouette design store – you can check it out there.
But today, I thought I would focus on the fun little tags I created to attach to each box using some of the Pebbles dies and items from the “Fun in the Sun” collection.
I started by cutting little banners from bright papers (I cut four because I’m making four popsicle boxes).
Next, I punched a hole on the left side of each banner.
I pulled out the “chips” from this collection and chose four of my favorites, making sure they were small enough to fit on the banners.
Next, I used the “hello” die to cut four phrases.
And I attached the phrases over the top of the chips using a liquid adhesive.
Finally, I tied baker’s twine through the holes in each tag
And added them to the paper popsicle boxes!
If you know me at all, you know that I couldn’t stop there – I just h ad to put together a little container to hold all of the boxes! I found a fun little berry basket (from pebbles in my pocket) and embellished it with a few strips of patterned paper (with the ends notched), a coordinating chip phrase, and a popsicle shaped card!
Aren’t the Popsicle cute tucked inside? Now I just have to wait to hear the “I’m bored” signal and then I get to present the kiddos their paper treats with their very own treat ticket inside!
