Easter Pail


What a better way to welcome the Easter Bunny then by having a cute little pail that he can put goodies into right? This project is very inexpensive and turns out so cute! You can pick up the paint can at your local hardware store, I got mine at Ace Hardware for $2.50! A couple sheets of 12x12 patterned paper and one sheet of coordinating cardstock and your set. Cut the paper for the bottom of the pail 5 1/2" x 12" (cut two this size to go around the pail). The handles pop off fairly easy (the tricky part can be getting it back in...you have to hold your head to the side and bite your tounge and try not to blurt out naughty words...LOL!) and a 3/4" circle punch will cut perfect holes to go around the knobs where you insert the handle. Embellish any way you want...turns out cute every time! I made one for my sis for her birthday with Coca-Cola paper...she loved it! Well I just got home, gotta tuck the kiddos in and say prayers. Hope you have a fabulous Friday!

hey girl! it's been a while since i've been over here...this pail is sooo cute!
i've been meaning to get over here and answer your scrapping question you asked me a while back...about 2 page layouts...the answer is no...i don't scrap 2 page layouts very often. but, i make sure to have 2 similar layouts, or 2 layouts with similar pictures, or from the same time. and then i pair those together in my album, that way it somewhat goes together...make sense?
hope that helps...
