How to create a beautiful Bigger Bitty Bucket from Whisker Graphics

Colleen here with a pretty girly project. I saw this Bigger Bitty Bucket https://www.whiskergraphics.com/bigger-bitty-bucket.html in the store and I could just see it turned into a sweet little girl gift.

Here is my finished project:

I started with my sizzix dies and cut out the flowers using material that I had. Once the flowers were cut out, I layered them in the order I wanted and then misted all the flowers very well. I twisted the flowers up and held them in place with a binder clip and left them to dry. I left mine overnight to make sure they were nice and dry.

While the flowers were drying. I cut out some vines using a sizzix die. I also cut out a doily using a Cherry Lynn Die and inked the edges with pink. I also used a Cherry Lynn die to cut out two butterflies. Since this is for a little girl I wanted to make sure it sparkled so I added some glitter to make sure you could see it sparkle. I added a few beads down the center for the body.

I adhered the doily to the top of the bucket and used a pop dot to make it stand up. Then I added the flower on top of the doily.

The next step is to finish decorating the bucket or if you desire you could leave it with just the flower on top.

I used the rest of my flowers to add to the front of the bucket and some ribbons on the handle.

One thing I love about these buckets is the key is hooked right to the handle which makes it so easy to open.

I had so much fun creating this little girl pretty bucket. You are so going to want to pick up a few buckets to create wonderful, easy and beautiful gifts. Thank you for stopping by and for your comments.

A practical and easy Easter name place card you can make

With Easter fast approaching, it is time for me to get going on the Easter name place cards for each person.  This year Riley helped me decide on what we were going to make.  He picked a cute little lamb from the Silhouette store.  Riley and I will be putting these pillow boxes together.

I put one of our pillow boxes together so that Riley will have an example to follow and this is what they should look like when he is all done.  I hope you will make some pillow boxes and share them with me.  I can't wait to see what you create.

Also I am using this project for the Creative Inspiration Challenge Blog Hop for those that want to play along.  You can find the DETAILS HERE
