Valentine Mini Pail

Designer Tip: The silver charms add a pretty shiny silver touch, hanging from the handle between ribbons. I cut a circle from the black patterned portion of the paper to set inside the lid beneath the flower and ribbon. This cute pail is perfect for valentine gift givingfor jewelry, chocolate treats, or any small gift.



  1. Cut an 8 1/2" x 2 1/4" strip from the side with the large floral corner of the foil sheet. Place inside the pail and tape together on the inside to secure. Wrap red ribbon around the bottom of the pail. Zot a mini black flower and a red mini brad over a knotted ribbon near the seam of the ribbon.
  2. Cut a 2 1/4" circle from the black patterned portion of the foil sheet, and glue to the center of the lid. Tie a ribbon knot, then Zot layered red flowers plus a black brad over the center of the lid.
  3. Cut 3" lengths of black, white, red, and white with black swirl ribbons and tie to handle as shown. Tie the large heart charm between ribbons with thread, hanging from the center of the handle above the lid as shown.
  4. Cut a 1 1/2" x 3/4" rectangle from white cardstock, then trim corners to create a tag shape. Ink edges and punch a hole in both ends. Write "for my Valentine" on the tag or use your computer printer. Hang the tag from the handle as shown. Tie a small heart charm to the bottom of the tag through the hole.
