The second hybrid project I had mentioned this week, was actually the first I warned everyone about. I have had a bunny elf or two play with it to test their ability at hybrid. One is a seasoned paper scrapper and another does only digital. So……they both declared success, in fact said I made it too easy for them. Hybrid is not remotely difficult, just appears so. I think those that have stayed in digital only are missing out on actually “feeling” their pages and projects. My children so often pull out their projects and books to share with company….making it impossible to give up paper even if I wanted too….NEVER! In today’s economy, digital does mean savings, so I am all about that. Buy once…use forever! This bucket is a perfect example of saving money. I made this project and four layouts with this one kit already. Awesome, and Easter baskets are not cheap anymore…even at Wally world!
I started with this fab kit from Liz at Sweet Digi Scraps called Fruit Punch

On sale for $3.89……. THANK YOU LIZ!!!!!!! Which I have to say is fabulous for soooooo many Spring and Summer projects! I had previously made a Trick or Treat bucket, that turned out so cute….I decided to try the same with digital using this kit for Easter. I went to the local paint store, left with two new cans and a $6.00 dip in the wallet. After measuring the width and length, I created the below wrappers for you. These are printable on regular printer paper or scrap paper, but it is set to 8.5 x 11 size with trim room to spare.
I used 1 decorated wrapper and 1 plain wrapper, trimmed to fit my can (they vary from 20-22 inches around, depending on if the factory worker had their coffee that day, but you should be covered for both) and also printed out 1 of the tags with the sweet butterflies!
After cutting those and a butterfly out, I just 3-d and pasted my way around where I wanted it to go. Filled with grass, that I will be picking up around my house until at least Christmas, wrapped the handle with ribbon, tied on a candy filled carrott, and ……..DONE
