Neighborhood Traveling Pail
So I totally stole this idea from my Sister In Law. She made one of these when we went scrapping the other night and I loved it so much that I wanted to make one myself. I ran to Roberts yesterday and picked up the pail. I had so much fun making it in the afternoon. I actually want to make a couple more to circulate around our ward.
I know that some of my neighbors peek at this blog, so I'll have to figure out someone that doesn't look at this to send it to. Maybe we'll even send it to someone that we don't even know very well, so they can't make the connection. So to you neighbors that DO peek here, if anyone asks you don't know where it came from. Got it? :0)
I just love how it turned out so much that I had to share with all of you non-neighbors!
Thanks for the idea Jana!
ETA: Here is the poem that is on the top of the can:
This is our traveling Neighborhood Pail to say "We love you! We think you're swell!" Enjoy these goodies we have for you, then here is what you have to do....Fillit with treats and give it away, Share love with your neighbor for this special holiday!"
I then printed out a copy of a Christmas tree that has a tag attached to it that says something about hanging a copy of it in your window where everyone can see so that as many different people can have the bucket before Christmas as possible.
I don't anticipate getting it back, but that's okay! it will be fun to see how many homes in the neighborhood it hits.
