I found these cute little metal buckets and decided to use them as one of the pillow gifts. They fit in nicely with the Farmhouse theme at my Stamp, Scrap & Create Retreat. There are so many things you could fill these buckets with. I decided on the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine.
I added the Striped Burlap ribbon around the bucket – the tear & tape is the perfect adhesive to use for this. the Sprig Punch is new in the Holiday catalog and its been really popular! So much so that it is was on back order for quite some time – the shipment came in, all the back orders were filled and then it sold out again and its back on back order. It’s going to be quite a wait though – the next shipment will arrive in February. I have mine here if you need to come punch some out. I used two sprigs and tied them to the handle with some of the Cotton Twine.
- Sprig Punch
- Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine
- 5/8″ Striped Burlap Ribbon
- Tear & Tape
- Mossy Meadow card stock
Another option to dress up the tins is to add a monogram. Very carefully stamp on the front with Versamark ink – I used the Brushwork Alphabet set. Then cover the ink with White Embossing Powder and heat set it with the Heat Tool.
These would be cute gifts filled with candy for the holidays. But I actually have mine on my craft table and filled with the twine.
