Friday, December 24, 2010

These small pails are just the right size for Christmas treats or any other special gift packaging you might need!

Decorate all the same or make each one an individual treasure – they are sure to please the recipient! Below are instructions for the snowflake pail.


Any kind of electronic die cutting machine (Cricut, Eclips, Silhouette, Slice etc.)
For this project, we used Cricut cartridge: Winter Lace
Sky Blue Flake Vinyl 

White Tulle – generic
Blue rick rack – generic

Snowflake Gift Pail


1. Cut a variety of snowflakes in blue and silver in all sizes no larger than 2 ½”. Because the snowflakes can be delicate, be careful choosing very small sizes as they can be difficult to work with.
2. Weed and pick out centers. (See instructions included with vinyl.)
3. Apply transfer tape to snowflakes individually, burnish.
4. Transfer one snowflake at a time to pail, burnish.
5. Repeat process.
6. Make a small tag out of scraps of vinyl and cardstock, attach to handle.
7. Knot ribbons around handle by tag.
8. Fill and enjoy!

Happy crafting!
