Made With Heart Blog Hop!


Howdy Bloggers and welcome to the Made with Heart Blog Hop, hosted by Kristin at Lil' Sweet Pea's Place. If you've been following the path, you've no doubt come across some fabulous inspiration along the way, including my predecessor, Liza! If you've not hopped down the path, please feel free to start at Lil' Sweet Pea's Place and follow the path of lovely creations and delicious blog candy!

As you know this Hop is all about handmade, heart felt gifts/ cards/ or scrapbook Layouts and our theme is Valentine's Day. Below is my project:


And here's how I did it:

2.  Trim down 2 sheets of patterned papers to 6 5/8"x12" and adhere to Bucket. 
3.  Trim out Paper in the handle holes and re-insert Handle pieces.
3.  Cut "Love" on the Cricut using Reminisce Accents Cartridge at 2" and chalk with brown ink.
4.  Adhere "Love" to red paper and trim edges by hand.
5.  Adhere "Love" to can as desired.
6.  Decorate Bucket with Flowers as desired.
7. Tie assorted ribbons to bucket handle as shown.

Supplies:
