SCS WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE WT160 RUB-ONS

Today's SCS Way To Use It Challenge (WT160) was to find ways to use Rub-Ons. My Rub-Ons project was so darn easy, I'm almost embarrassed to post it as a "project"! I simply altered a Target $1 Spot Metal Pail. It's hard to tell in the photo, but I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes to weave the Real Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon through the top of the pail. The A Perfect Day Rub-Ons from the Occasions Mini Collection literally took seconds to transfer onto the pail.RECIPE
Embellishments: Real Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, A Perfect Day Rub-Ons
Tools: Crop-A-Dile
Supplies: Target $1 Spot Metal Pail

ETA: Aime asked if I painted the pail. Answer: No, I bought it already red. The only alterations were the threaded ribbon with the Crop-A-Dile and the Rub-Ons.

Did you have to paint the pail? I just bought a bunch of pails yesterday in the $1 spot, but they weren't red...but it is SOOO cute!

I did not know a crop-a-dile would go through tin. Amazing. So is your pail. These are the best projects the kind that looks like you spent all day and didn't.
