Bucket O' Gifts

I finally found the time to finish a project that isn't a card! I purchased this empty paint can from a home improvement store and began to altar it some time ago. I carved out a few hours of time recently so that I could finish it. Here is the list of materials!

Stamps- Anna Griffin alphabet, floral background and oval cartouche. God's Beauty by Stampin' Up!
Card Stock- SU! Very Vanilla
Designer Paper- Anna Griffin
Ribbon- Sheer apple green was purchased on ebay and does not list a manufacturer. Pink ribbon was under the Big Lots name and the 3/16 green picot is Offray Spool-O-Ribbon.
Silk Flowers-Spring inspirations bush from Jo-Ann store
Green Bling-Jo-Ann store
Half Pearls- Martha Stewart by EK Sucess
Ink- SU! Old Olive, Versa Mark Watermark and Anna Griffin rose
Markers- SU! Pretty in Pink, Pixie Pink and Sage Shadow
SU! Silver detail embossing powder
Sizzix Pillow Box Die Cut


The pillow box was glued to the back of the can with rubber cement and a bow and butterfly were added for decoration. This box holds the key to open the can. Now it is your turn! What kind of gift container can you create?
