Buckets of Love Valentine's Gift by Chantel - Day 4 of the Fleurette Bloom and Trendy Twine Inspiration Party

Hi everyone, Chantel here today to share my project I created especially for Day 4 of the Fleurette Bloom and Trendy Twine's Inspiration Party!

I created this cute treat bucket filled with treats!  The perfect gift for someone special this Valentine's day.  The bucket file is from Fleurette Blooms Beach Bucket 3D SVG Project Kit, It's super easy to put together and I just love how I was able to adapt a beach bucket to a Valentine's theme!


I just couldn't find the right stamp so I made my own using sketch pens in my Silhouette Cameo. I love this technique as you can choose the colour, font, and of course - the caption, to suit any project! I completed the spade by wrapping the handle with Totally Raspberry Trendy Twine.  I just love how it turned out.  


After I cut all the pieces of the flower, I thought it looked a bit flat.  So with a bit of twisting and bending of all the pieces for the flower, it really made it come to life.  As I didn't have anything in my stash to match, I decided to make the burlap button using my I-top tool and then added a Totally Raspberry Twine bow before adhering it to the flower. 


Finally, it was time to add the treats!  You can add anything of your choice of course, but I opted for good old marshmallows!  Who doesn't like those:)  I simply placed them in a cellophane bag and dressed it up with a mix of Totally Pink and Totally Raspberry Twine.   I think it looks good enough to eat, don't you? 


I do hope you've enjoyed my project.  Remember, Sukie is on the Trendy Twine Blog today with an amazing take on the Anytime Pillow Box Collection so be sure to pop on over there too.



The Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine  just adds that special touch to her project.
