more bucket gifts!

After posting my {Easter bucket tutorial} I decided to try some of those other bucket ideas.  I love them!  

Both of these were just made from Heritage Makers templates (so the "work" had already been done for me), but I did make a few changes to suit my preferences better.  I LOVE that about Heritage Makers templates--they are still editable and 100% customizable.

Anyway, here's the Dad's Treat Bucket I made:

I think it's darn cute if I don't say so myself.

(If you want instructions on how to make these, click the "Easter bucket tutorial" I mentioned in the first paragraph.)

I really love how the Teacher Thank You Bucket turned out, too.  This is a generic one, but I made some personalized ones for my kids' teachers, too.

Going to fill this with treats for the teacher, and maybe some pencils and other things she might need throughout the year??  Haven't decided yet.

At the side, there's a blank tag to write "to," "from," and a message to the teacher.  (When I made these personalized in my Heritage Makers account for my kids' teachers, I typed a note right on here.)

This is optional, of course, but I thought the little bus was cute.  I can't remember the saying it had in the template, but I changed it to say "the best teachers teach from the heart," because I think it's sweet & true.

Final view--you can see the lid here.  Cute, right?  That's the part that I personalized for my kids' teachers:  "Mrs. Jones' Survival Kit," etc.

I actually used this basic template to make a bucket for my son's piano teacher.  Instead of the yellow on the front, I found Heritage Makers art that looks like a sheet of music, and instead of the scissors & pencil & apple, I found a piano.  It's all black and white.  It looks pretty cool.

SO MUCH you can do when you are literally designing your own scrap pages with Heritage Makers!!

UPDATE 2022:  All these items shown were made with Heritage Makers.  However, Heritage Makers is currently being updated to a new software platform that doesn't require Adobe Flash to run (which Adobe discontinued at the end of 2020).  For the time being, it's easier for you to order these items from me--meaning I make them for you--than it will be for you to make them in your own Heritage Makers account.  Just contact me with questions (or to order) these great items!  Or, for another amazing digital scrapbooking program where you can design your own scrap pages, have a look at Artisan by Forever.
