Directions for Flower Pail Card

Directions for the Flower Pail Card
I had some requests for directions for the flower pail card.  I like my cards larger than usual so for this card you will need a 12x12 double sided piece of paper and a 4.5 x 9 piece of paper.
Fold the paper in half to make a triangle....if it isn't perfect I just trim it with my trimmer.
with the long side of the triangle facing down, take the right lower corner and bring it to meet the middle of the left hand side of the triangle.  I found it easier to see where both sides would lay before I pressed down. Then repeat for the lower left corner and bring it up to meet the middle of the right side.  Once you are happy with the way it lays then open up the left lower corner and apply glue (I use my ATG).
Now you take the triangle on the top of the bucket, it should be two separate pieces and fold the first one down over your bucket
Glue down the triangle
I like to add some embellishments to the right hand side to hide that the triangle is not perfect.  For the card I used a 4.5x4.5 card (a 4.5x9 piece of paper)
