This idea has been floating my head ever
since I saw the new paper line from
It was inspired by two of my favorite past projects...
my gift bucket and our fall to-do list clipboards...
but this one is my favorite!
The tin bucket is from Hobby Lobby...
I used mt Cricut to cut the vinyl for the title.
I did consider Modge Podge-ing on paper letters or even stickers,
but in the end the vinyl worked great!
I used scrap ribbon, fabric, and twine to embellish the handle.
At first I did the entire handle and was too much,
so I did it heavy on one side and
then just a bit on the other... Ahh, much better!
The clothes pins ar made from bamboo...
they have a really nice color to them naturally,
but I had to add stripes of Summer Fresh paper!
On the reverse, I used a red pen to write out
what we wanted to do this summer.
I also considered running the strips through the printer
like I did before with the fall clips,
but in the end I liked the handwritten...
kinda relaxed version.
Some of our activities include...
TUBE THE RIVER
TAKE A ROAD TRIP
HAVE A WATER BALLOON FIGHT
GO TO THE BEACH
TAKE DADDY TO LUNCH
I have a boredom jar (that will match) in the works...
that will include to the little things we will do more than once!
Be sure to come back and see it!
I can't seem to make any decor without my fabric flowers!
The yellow one is made from crape paper...
I just adore the red and yellow!
The summer fresh line comes with the most adorable tags...
It was hard to choose just one
to dangle from the handle, but I managed!
I have invited a group of girls over for craft night
and we are all going to make one!
You should make one, too!
