Last Minute Gift Ideas by JustRite!

I don't know about you but sometimes buying "token" gifts are the hardest. How do you show someone you appreciate them without breaking the bank? Well......how about some trial size bath products, a dollar bucket from Target, and some stamps and paper? The presentation is half the gift! I have made 10 buckets so far.....here is a sampling of 3 I did. I used the new square stamps and the little gingerbread boy from the Favorite Occasions set. He was colored twice with Copics, cut out, and then Crystal Lacquer was added to his body. When he was dry, I used a pop dot to place the two images together. I created a little scene with the square stamped image being the base. I added a tree cut from DP, some mica flakes for snow, a pretty bow tied with a button. I added this entire scene to a large snowflake cut with my Sizzix. The snowflake was cut, distressed with ink, and glitter was added. After that, just tie the whole thing to a bucket with twine! : )


I used shredded music paper and doilies for the inside of the bucket.

I think I need to work on my photography skills......

I will be showing you more tag/bucket ideas later this week..... : )
Head on over to the rest of the DT's take on this fabulous challenge! Their projects are AMAZING!
