Love Birds Gift Bucket

I saw this bucket at Target, and wanted to make something Valentines-ey (is that a word??) with it.

I got this bucket at Target in their $1 bin for $2.50.
LOVE Target $1 bin!
Used my Silhouette Machine to cut out the vinyl

Tore a few strips of material
that I had from Christmas

And, found this filler shred at
Target as well for .99 cents

Here is the finished product:

A cute basket that can be used in so many ways
-You could take out the filler and put your Valentine's candy in it
-You could put a Valentine's Day gift in the bucket underneath the filler
-It can be just used as a cute decoration  
-Display it next to a few cute chunky wooden hearts, as a table centerpiece or, lay the hearts on top of the filler in the bucket
 (Kind of the same idea as easter eggs) 

Please let me know what you think
and.....share the love!
