Clear Paint Pail Gift...

Need a quick gift for someone?
Here are the supplies you will need:
  1. Stickers (Fall, Birthday, Christmas-Whatever the occasion
                          2. Ribbon
                                3. Clear plastic paint pail- Quart Size shown here.
                                4. Glue Dots (One of the best inventions ever made)

Put them all together and you have...
A wonderful gift that any adult or child would love to receive!

Just think of all the great things you could fill these pails with. They come in 3 sizes and the biggest size could hold holiday cookies, school supplies & many other tasty treats. Remember Christmas is right around the corner!
This craft is really easy and fun to do~Get the kids involved!
 Many of you have been asking where I got the pails . I bought them at a my local Ben Franklin's but have seen them at the bigger "chain" craft stores & Staples sells them. Here is a website that sell them: Tall Mouse

  9. This is way too crafty for me (as you may know if you read my last post about my homemaking funk)
    I would probably just give the person the candycorn, still in the grocery bag.
