Did you know that Christmas is less than 60 days away? If you’re like me and haven’t even started your Christmas shopping and list making than today’s How To Tuesday tutorial is for you. Design team member Elizabeth Carney shows us how to create a fun and easy gift bucket using Pebbles Welcome Christmas collection. It’s the perfect way to dress up those holiday gifts! Here’s what Elizabeth had to say … “I love making Christmas gifts, but for my busy life they need to be something that is not only cute but easy! Using the fun Pebbles Welcome Christmas products and this tin made making neighbor gifts this year a snap!”
You will need the following supplies: clear paint bucket, several sheets of patterned paper from the Welcome Christmas collection as well as Dimensional Stickers, Layered Embellishments, Ribbon, and Fabric Brads.
First, cut the Santa’s Workshop patterned paper into a long strip of 2 ¾ inches and then glue together. You need to use 2 strips due to the strips not fitting all the way around the tin. Cut excess papers off then glue to paint bucket.
Cut the Christmas Gift patterned paper into a long strip of 1 inch wide. Again you will need 2 strips. Glue strips together cutting excess papers off then glue to paint bucket.
Using the Welcome Christmas ribbon (or any trims you want) decorate around the tin. Add a Welcome Christmas Layered Embellishments over the trims for a more dimensional effect.
Using Welcome Christmas Dimensional Stickers adhere a sentiment sticker towards the top of the tin. Add Welcome Christmas Decorative Twist Ties towards the bottom of the tin.
Using a circle cutter cut a circle for the top of the lid. Add Welcome Christmas fabric brads adhered to top of lid.
Finally, using twine, add the metal can opener and tie to handle of tin.
