Easter Pails





Hello! I hope your day is a good one so far! The sun is shining here -- yay! We've had several inches of rain over the last couple days, and last night we had snow showers, so the blue sky and sunshine look great to me! :) Here are the pails I made for Caroline's preschool teachers for Easter. Her teachers are so wonderful and so sweet (Anna had them for preschool also), so I really do like to give them something special whenever I can! I covered these tin pails with For Peep's Sake paper (I told you you'd be seeing it again!), and I used more images from Eggstra Special Easter by My Favorite Things. I colored the images with Copic Markers. The front image panels are matted on two Giga Scalloped Squares that are overlapped slightly. The images on top are on SU! Scalloped Circles. I sponged around the image panels and the tags on the sides. Speaking of tags -- I found out after I'd finished these pails that today's Ways to Use It Challenge is to use tags on your project, so I guess this works! I know that's kinda cheating, so I'll try to do a project especially for the challenge. ;)

Here are the rest of the materials used:
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, Whisper White (SU!)
Ribbon: SU! grosgrain and silver cord, May Arts two-tone yellow ribbon
Other: dimensionals, 1/8" handheld punch, Tag Corner punch, Fiskars Circle Cutter (for top paper circle)
Edited to Add: I purchased the tin pails at All That Scraps.

I hope to have more to share tomorrow -- thanks for visiting today! Have a great day! :)
