Designer's Tip: A Glue Dot at the corners of the glittered cardstock rectangle will keep it positioned against the curve of the pail.



  1. Cut the green corner embellishment paper into 12"x5" strips, both featuring a corner embellishment. Cut two 12" x 1" lengths of striped paper and ink glue to the top back edge of each of the green strips. Ink the long edge of the striped border. Glue one green paper strip centered on the front of the pail, flush with the bottom edge. Trim the remaining green strip to fill the gap at the back of the pail.
  2. Stamp a 5 ¼" x 4" rectangle of red glitter cardstock with the Marry & Magical image and a glue pad. Sprinkle with silver glitter. Tap off the excess glitter and return to the jar. Punch a 1/8" hole on the left and right edge. Secure the rectangle to the front of the green paper on the pail front using glue dots. Thread red tinsel trim through the hole at the one side of the rectangle and use glue dots to adhere the small end of the trim onto the longer length wrapped around the pail sides and back through the opposite punched hole. Secure that short end to the long end.
  3. Adhere an ornament 3-D sticker to "hang" from the "l" in "magical". Adhere 2 silver holly stickers to the top corners of the red rectangle. Use the template to trace a 5" circle onto the back of the red glitter cardstock. Cut out and stamp with glue pad and the snowflake stamp. Sprinkle with silver glitter. Tap off the excess glitter and return to the jar. Glue the circle to the top of the pail lid. Adhere a snowflake sticker. Wrap the handle with the remaining red tinsel, securing the ends to the handle base with glue dots. Adhere green holly leaves to the top of the handle.
