Get Well by Michele Kovack

It is day one and as always Michele has out done herself by creating this great " Get Well Bucket"
I thought it would be nice to make a little "Get Well" bucket for someone who is sick. The bucket was at the Dollar Spot at Target. (Love those Dollar Spots!) The paper is by Bazill. Since the bucket is narrower at the bottom than the top, I loosely wrapped the paper around the bucket and cut the excess off. I used Red Line tape to adhere it in place. I cut the flowers out using my Sizzix machine, distressed the edges with white ink and folded the petals. The center was stamped with the small round monogram stamp and the small letter set. I was trying hard to come up with a cute saying, instead of, "Get Well Soon, " which seemed boring......so I came up with, "A Spoonful of Sugar Makes the Medicine Go Down." Cute right?










The spoon stamp is from Crafty Secrets and was stamped on a Shrinky Dink. I cut it out, heat it up, and while still warm, bent the handle for a nice "spoonie" curve! I added clear crystals to the spoon for some "sugar" using Crystal Effects. As a finishing touch, I added various ribbons to the handle to dress it up a bit. Add some cough drops, Kleenex, Chapstick, tea, and Vicks Vapo Rub, and voila!

Great idea. It would almost be worth it to get sick just to receive it.
