Beach Vacation Treat Pails

Good Morning,

We just returned from a wonderful beach vacation. It was nothing too exotic just our local beach but being able to stay a few steps from the beach for a few days is amazing.

Usually when we go on a vacation I try to make al ittle treat box or goody bag with little fun things each kid might like. I usually put in a favorite candy, maybe a special cup or in this case sunscreen and chapsticks. I love that it makes them feel special and it starts the trip off on a good note.

This time since we were not going to far and this trip was a last minute booking so I did something on a smaller scale. I loved these sand pails by Lori Whitlock, just perfect for our trip.

I used a Bo Bunny Collection I have had in my stash for years.  I love its bright colors and different shape patterns which I thought would be fun on these pails. The shovel is part of the cut file which I used as name tags adhered by dimensional glue dots.

This file cuts out strips for the pail lip as well as the handle which is pre cut for a brad. I liked that it gave movement to the project.

This is a fairly simple project that comes together realtively easy. If your doing a beach theme vacation or party, I think these would be great.

Supply List:

  • Silhouette Cameo
  • Lori Whitlock Designs Cut file “Sand Pail Shaped Box”
  • 12×12 patterned paper (I used Bo Bunny)
  • 2 brads
  • dimensional adhesive
  • regular adhesive
  • Alphabet stickers or cut out from the silhouette


Hope you are enjoying some summer fun!

Until next time!
