Pirate Cookie Bucket

So I baked some cookies for the firemen who showed up at my place to turn of the building alarm last week, read story {here} and also made a Pirate Cookie Bucket. 
The station is completely decorated in Pirate gear - I know this from the first time I dropped off cookies with Brittany and we received a tour and even got to climb up in the engines.  So I figured it would be cute to make a pirate cookie bucket.
$1 bin at Michaels is so good to me – got the bucket for 80 cents and I already had everything else!  I printed the skull and crossbones graphic on plain white paper and punched out the circle; adhered to the cello baggie with some scotch tape, twist tied it and called it a day. 
The die-cut pirate ship on the front of the bucket looked a little plain, so I slapped a punch on it too!

I couldn’t resist tying some ribbon on the side of the bucket – probably too girly for the boys, but I thought it looked better with it.

A thank you tag was the finishing touch, and off to the station I went…
