Grab a handle full of popcorn and watch a movie. Here is how you make this tasty treat and create the bucket it goes in.
Start with 3 circles, add a heavy stroke and no fill
Select all three circles, select the Shape Builder Tool and hold OPTION/ALT (this will turn the cursor into the delete cursor) and hover the cursor over the line you want to delete. Remove the 3 lines in the triangle center first, then the outer arcs.
This is the end result of the removal of the lines using the Shape Builder Tool.
Duplicate the set of shapes, change the stroke to a lighter color and rotate the shape slightly.
Place the new set behind the original set to create an offset popped kernel.
To create the bucket of pop corn, create a circle, then duplicate it at a 45° so they overlap slightly.
Use COMMAND + D to repeat the duplicate.
Select all the duplicates shapes and use the Unite Mode in the Pathfinder Panel.
Duplicate and flip the set of circles, line then up with the circles at the top.
Select the shapes and use the Unite Mode in the Pathfinder Panel to make them one shape.
Use the Direct Select Tool to select and remove the inner section of the lines.
Draw arcs with the Arc Tool and add some lighter strokes. Place the arcs around the pile of pop corn to give it some dimension.
For the bucket, create a vertical rectangle.
Duplicate the rectangle to the side so they snap together.
Duplicate the shapes so you end up with an odd number of rectangle. Alternate the fills with red/white to create the stripes.
Select the Free Transform Tool and select the Perspective Tool from the transform panel.
Select all the rectangles and click on the corner handle with the Free Transform Tool and pull in to give it a wedge shape.
Duplicate the rectangles, use the Pathfinder Unite Mode to create a solid shape. Add a darker stroke and no fill. This is the outline of the bucket.
Place the darker outlined shape on the stripes. Add lines to the top and bottom of the bucker, hot dog the end of the lines.
Place the pop corn pile behind the bucket.
Add some fun popped kernels made in the first few steps. Grab a handful and enjoy!
