Fantabulous Cricut Design Team Project for Challenge # 38

The theme for this week's challenge at Fantabulous Cricut is a Ribbon Challenge.  We were asked to incorporate ribbon into our Cricut project.  Be sure to check out all of the design team's projects and enter your own ribbon project into the challenge here: http://fantabulouscricut.blogspot.com/

For me, I love ribbon. I have a ton of it.  I am bad about buying ribbon that I have no need for, simply because I think it is pretty.  And of course, instead of using ribbon that I already had, I saw this challenge as a great opportunity to go shopping for some new ribbon. :)  For my project, I made a paint pail to fill with some stocking stuffers for Kaylee.

I began with this paint pail that I found at Hobby Lobby in their Christmas area.  I loved the polka dots, and I found some great ribbon to match with pink and green dots.  I took the ribbon and cut it into strips to tie around the handle.  I just alternated the colors around the handle until it was covered.


I used pink vinyl and the Jasmine Cricut Cartridge to cut the K for the front of the pail.  Then, I filled it up with some goodies for her.  It has a small stamp set and a little mini lego set as well, but mainly silly bands.  She loves silly bands and inside here are the Justin Bieber silly bands that she is wanting so bad, so I am sure they will be more exciting to her than the pail itself, lol.
