Pig in a Can - Again?!

I'm tickled pink! Pink as that pig in a can that is! LOL! Anyway I told Mandy from "Limelight Papercrafts" about my ornament holder idea and guess what?!! She loved it! I'm thrilled that she said that! Well when she asked if I could take better pictures for her I, of course, said "yes"! So, in case you wanted to see better pictures too....here's a couple more! I'll also include a little bit of directions how I did it too!

To get my ornament to stand up in the pail I simply had my husband put a hole in the lid large enough for me to get the string through. I then taped it down and went on decorating it! I used my Coluzzle and my scallop Nestabilities to make the circles and my newest SU punch for the scalloped border. The "bling" is from Michael's dollar area and Target's Dollar Vortex! I buy the rhinestone body tattoos they have there as I get more rhinestones that way and I've never had a problem with them falling off! If I think it's going to be possible I do use some Crystal Effects to hold them on! You can see I attached them to the plastic and then around the edge. I tied on a variety of ribbons to make it a little fancier too! Just think of all the possibilities!!

I hope you like the better pictures!

Until next time....
