I've finally depleted my stash of Stampendous Pails. Looks like I need to head back over to Eclectic Paperie to pick up some more!
My last two were used to make Easter pails for my boys. I picked up the For Peep's Sake paper that has been all over "blogland" lately. Julie Masse made a bunch of cute cards that pushed me right over the edge! LOL!
I covered the outside of the pails with three different patterned strips of paper, and finished them off with a length of Stampin Up Striped Grosgrain Bashful Blue Ribbon.
Using the super cute Stampendous Clear Pail Topper (Thanks Daisy and Joy!!!) I stamped the basket for the top of the pail, and then masked it using Eclipse Tape. I stamped the egg three times and used the masking again to get two of them in behind.
I colored the tops in first with my copic markers, then added some stickles to the tops of the eggs. Then I aquapainted over the copics with my SU crayons and filled in the center of each of the eggs. The background was looking so terribly white, so I used my bashful blue crayon and an aquapainter to fill all that in softly.
I know the kids will mostly like what's inside them, but I really do think that little details make all the difference. Plus, I really just LOVED making and filling them.
What's inside? Divvies jelly beans and chocolate bunnies, and peeps!
