On a recent trip to Walmart (waiting patiently for the new Lites to come in!) I found those large 18 gallon tubs with the string handles for $6 each. They have them in blue, red, yellow and green. I got the twitch when I walked by and knew they would be wonderful with vinyl on them. I needed a birthday present for a soon to be 3-year-old and thought of all the toys the family has in their home. I made a quick call to the family to make sure it would have a place for it and to find out what the birthday boy is in to these days and bought that bucket!
Once I got it home I started planning a racing themed bucket for my gift. I printed and cut all the vinyl using my Imagine machine and it goes on so nice. I used:
- Plantin Schoolbook for all the lettering: Roly Poly & italics
- Everyday Paper dolls for the cars and flags.
- The base Imagine Images for the circles and all the fill in colors.
I wanted two of the flags to be checkered flags so I hand colored them. I tried a few tests with different markers and ended up using Permapaque markers. They did not smear to the touch quickly.
I also wanted to mention that this is being posted to a fun link-up party. Made It Myself Mondays. The button to get to this great site will always be sitting on the side of my posts!!
