Designer Tip: A nice idea for all of those boy birthdays too! There's more than enough embellishments to make multiple pails, simply Change the greeting.



  1. Cut a 12"x3" and one 3" square of blue striped paper. Ink one long edge on both pieces and mat that same long edge with 1" wide strips of red paper.
  2. Glue vintage sports posters to the center of the strip and secure a white Arrow Brad Buddie between them. Secure sports brads and clear stars among the posters. Wrap the strip around the bottom of the pail, with the ends overlapping at the back.
  3. Adhere red and blue stars among the clear area at the top of the pail.
  4. Journal on the red textured paper and punch with the 3" circle. Ink the edges and glue/foam tape the "Dad" letters under the greeting. Glue to the lid with a clear star. Loop red and blue ribbons around the left handle.
