Judy J. -great idea- I had stopped making them because it was frustrating to open the pails. What a fantastically simple idea!

I'm so glad I finally found your wesite. I use to buy your Paper Flair card kit booklets and loved them. Then I got pretty sick for awile (MS) ,but not I'm doing well enough to do your crafts again. Thank you for still making them.

My sister-in-law gave me a beautifully done pail with flowers and ribbons on the handle however I had such a time getting it open without using a paint can opener that I determined the center of the lid, punched a 1/4" nail through it, took a drawer knob and screw and nut the knob on. The drawer pull was painted to match the flower color. Now I can lift it out without using the paint can opener or fingernails.

I have been decorating these pails for several years - I give cookies in them at Christmas and have made them for bathrooms/bedrooms coordinating the colors for friends. I also decorate them for new babies - a great shower gift! I keep a supply of the pails (in both sizes)on hand for quick gifts. My friends love them!!

I agree with Shirley. Why leave the "back" of the "card" undecorated? It seems like a wasted opportunity. With a cute craft like this you need to use 100% of the display area.
By the way, the scrapbook club box was worth waiting for. Better late than never. Keep up the good work.

I have a super idea. I am going to get the set with the small pail and order some more small pails and for friends and neighbors I am going to decorate each one of them and give them with cookies inside for christmas. These are so pretty and it would make a neat homemade gift. Thank you I have been looking for something neat to put cookies in.

These are so cute. I just made one last week that I posted in the PW MB album section and when I was adding ribbons to the handle, it occurred to me that this would be a great way to use up little scraps of ribbon that I had been throwing away since they were so short. Now I know how I can use these leftovers, so I've starting collecting them until my next pail project. Waste not, want Mom always used to say...thanks for the cute project ideas.

Hi, may I make a suggeston...on the birthday pail with photos, why not decorate all 3 sections of the insert, then you have a different set of memories every time you turn the pail around.

I loved these ideas for decorating the pails. I use mine for storing my ribbon reels. My 4 year old can't get in there to unroll them and you've given me nice ideas for making the pails look less plain. I'll need to keep a strip of clear down one area, though.
Thank you for the ideas!
