Punched Bucket or Pail

I responded to a fellow demonstrator looking for ideas on how to use punches to make a bucket, and thought I'd share the mini tutorial I made for that:

To get the ovals done, punch the Oval Punch out of card stock first, then punch the Wide Oval Punch around it, to get the "ring" shape. Be sure to turn your punch over to help you center the Oval Punch hole in the opening of the Wide Oval Punch. This graphic was made in about 3 minutes, using the punch images in the My Digital Studio computer program, now available from Stampin' Up! It's such a great digital crafting tool.

Unfortunately, I don't have the opportunity to make a card for you right now, but I hope you can see this could also make a tall Easter basket. If you want it to be a pail, like the kind your kids take to the beach, you try adding a little shovel to it by modifying one of the arrows from the My Way Punch.
