I know you have seen all those cute plastic clear pails and buckets at your local craft store. I have, and a few weeks ago I bought a few of them because I knew I would eventually come up with something to do with them. Then, a couple weekends ago, Archivers was having a make and take at their store and for a small fee we could assemble a really cute one. I went and participated. It was pretty fun. The other day I was looking at my empty buckets and decided I could replicate the one I made at Archivers. Well, my version of it anyway! I utilized some of the scraps left over from the mini album I shared with you the other day and this is what I came up with:
1. Cut a strip of paper as wide as you want the size from the middle out
2. Cut the length depending on how full of a flower you want. I think this one was about 8"
3. Score the strip at 1/4" intervals
4. Accordian fold on all the score lines
5. Adhere the 2 ends together "rooftop to rooftop" (just picture it in your mind..it makes sense!)
6. Push the circle of folds in at the center. It's a little wonky at first, but it will work if you mess around with it.
7. I adhered mine to a circle of paper so it has something to stick to. Use glue and hold in place until stays.
8. Top it with any embellishment you like.
