Life Is Good with Pebbles & GlueArts!!

Life IS good! There is much to be thankful for!!

We're so excited to bring you a brand new week and a brand new sponsor to the GlueArts blog!

Please help us welcome Pebbles to the blog!


Many of you may know Pebbles....or as many of us called them...

Pebbles in my Pocket. Pebbles is a fun company that was started back in 1992 by one smart and creative lady, Brenda Birrell! Brenda started with a hand-drawn catalog right out of her home.

Pebbles has been known for their fun products, patterns and more! And now their products are a part of the American Crafts Family! A perfect fit!


Today we're excited to kick off a full week of Pebbles inspiration and ideas using their Happy Go Lucky collection! You definitely can't help but feel happy when you work with their fun papers and embellishments!

Supplies: 
Glue Arts:
Glue Glider Pro with  1/4 High Tac Cartridge Refill - Pro
Mini Adhesive Squares
U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam
Ribbon Adhesive

Pebbles Inc.:
Happy Go Lucky Pattern Paper – Delight, Carefree, Cheery and Thrilled
Happy Go Lucky Buttons
Happy Go Lucky Ribbon
Happy Go Lucky Chipboard Flowers
Happy Go Lucky Embossed Stickers

Other: Hemp; Fiskars Americas Butterfly Shape Template

Instructions:
1. Create a 5” x 7” card. Then cut out butterfly shape (die cut or template about 4” x 5.5” in size) and adhere to card front using the Glue Glider Pro with High Tac Adhesive. Also cut and adhere paper strips below the butterfly.

2. Cut ribbon/trim to fit across the card and apply Ribbon Adhesive to the back to adhere between the paper strips.

3. Cut hemp to wrap around the card front twice and tie a loose bow near the center of the card.
4. Cut and apply U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam to the back of a dimensional sticker with a sentiment/greeting. Position near the left side on top of the paper strips.

5. Although the flower stickers already had some dimensional foam on the back, I wanted to add even more height so that the flowers rested just above the “smile” sticker. I added additional U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam to the back of each and applied them above and below the greeting sticker.

6. Tie the bow in the hemp and thread one of the tails through a button. Apply a Mini Adhesive Square to the back of the button and affix it on top of the bow.
7. To finish the card, add a thin strip of U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam to the back of a floral border sticker (trimmed to fit) and position in the center of the butterfly.

These treat holders are so quick and easy to create, and work well with any number of sweets such as old-fashioned candy sticks, candy bars, bubble gum sticks, or candy canes. Using U Cut It foam adhesive to hold the sides closed allows for a lot of depth to hold the candy. Stack two layers of foam for really thick treats.

1. For the base of the treat holder you will need a strip of double-sided patterned paper cut to 4" x 12". Cut several smaller strips for accents.

2. Create a score mark at 4" up from one end of the 4" x 12" strip, and fold up the bottom. Adhere smaller strips across this bottom flap using Glue Arts High Tac adhesive. Round the top corners of the holder and the flap using a corner rounder punch. Machine stitch if desired.

3. Embellish the pocket with whatever goodies you would like. I used Layered Embellishments, Chipboard Flowers, Dimensional Stickers, Fabric Brads, and Glitter Flower Brads.

4. Cut thin strips of U Cut It foam adhesive that are about 1/4" x 1" and apply to the top of the pocket flap. This will hold your pocket closed. If you don't want the depth, stitch the flap closed, or use staples or Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares.

5. Wrap twine around the treat holder and tie into a simple bow on the right side. Add a green twine bow for detailing using Glue Arts Micro Extreme Adhesive Squares. Add toothpick flags to the left side using adhesive squares.
Add candy and enjoy!
