Bright and Fun Kites!

Hi everyone!  Robbie today to share a little card and bucket set that I made using Leaky Shed Studio Kites.  These little kites are so cute!  I decided that I wanted to do something bright and fun, since I'm so ready for blue skies and sunshine!

I came up with this little gifty set as a fun way to say thanks to someone special.

The card is just a pre-made Doodlebug card that I decorated using the little kites.  These are great and they come in a set of 3 which makes them perfect to mix-up with different colors and to work their way across more than one item.

These were really simple to do.  I used Staz-on white ink to color them white and then glued patterned paper to the back.

Tip:  Don't worry about cutting the paper in advance.  Just glue them to a scrap, let it dry and trim along the edges.  The smooth design of these makes trimming really easy!

 Now, if you follow me at all, you know that I love gift sets and I'm a sucker for those little buckets that you find for about $1 at many stores!   I'm also having a hard time passing up all the adorable paper straws that you find everywhere these days.

On my blog, I have a quick step by step on my blog today to show you how I put the bucket together.  You can check it out here.  Just the Scrap

To finish my project, I added the last kite to the bucket.  I glued it to a straw and used it as a pick.  It would be really simple to  add a tag or sentiment to the straw, too.

Thanks so much for dropping by to see my project!  Don't forget to drop by My Blog to take a peek at my tutorial!
