Summer Fun Blog Hop June 3rd and 4th Day 2

First of all let me thank you for all your lovely comments and let me just say Woo Hoo for passing the 200 followers mark.   I loved ll the awesome projects I saw yesterday and am looking forward to the second day of the Summer Fun Blog Hop.  Thanks Shawnee for organizing this great Blog Hop.  Please see the post from June 3rd to see the Blog Hop rules and details as well as the info on my Blog Candy.  Thanks for joining us.  
For the second day I want to show you the gift containers I have made recently.  First of all are these lovely boxes which can be made starting with 1 12 x 12  piece of cardstock and some patterned paper.  I have attached the link to the directions here.  The video will be for a Thanksgiving box and I have seen darling baby gift boxes and birthday gifts using this method too.    The one on the right is empty.  I used paper from Target and cuts from Life is a Beach.  The one on the left has dollar items from Michaels and Target.  I am sorry the picture does not do them justice ( I already gave these away so cannot retake them) but these are quick and fun to make.  Please check out the tutorial

The second gift containers I used buckets from Michaels and more cute dollar items from Michaels.  I love the watermelon plates and napkins.  Also included popsicle makers,  corn skewers, hand sanitizer, straws,  silver ware  and a beach ball.  I then made matching tags with  Life is a Beach and stamped Enjoy on them.  The pail tags were cut at 5 ".
