Bottle box

Hi Everyone, I have something slightly different today, Hubby's cousin was celebrating their 50th Anniversary. I made a card similar to one I made recently Here, then decided to look for a package for a bottle, I found it on  My SVG HUT what was great is that you can go to her Blog and see full instruction and easy to follow too, IF you follow each step, of course me being me missed one step of doing the hinge on the lid, it still worked though, so no cutting out more card, which was just as well as we were visiting them the next day and I had used All the card - whew!

I used DP from the same digi kit as the card, which matched up well, used some dies to finish off. I was really quite pleased. The ribbon is also included in the file and is used as a band around the box, but in my rush I glued it to the lid, in the front, so had to open it to photo, no problem though, as it is easy to open and close. I added a pearl heart, coloured gold with my Spectrum Noir marker. The 50 was cut on my Cameo. I loved the fact the papers fitted so perfectly, it's something I haven't done a lot of. The papers were cut for the inside too, but as I had missed a step, it would have made it too messy to glue them inside. All in all, I shall be making more of these, NOT missing the step and not in so much of a rush. At the end of all that they were impressed with it and thrilled I had made it for them, so all in all a good result. Enough waffle I hear you cry, here it is - at last!

Such a cute idea. It looks quite substantial too! Sure they loved it - what's not to love?

That looks amazing Faith and the paper is such a pretty pattern too xx

This is just a clever way to present this yummy gift. Now they have another pretty box they can save to remember the occasion, or -- use it again. You are clever to find the design and THEN be able to execute it well. Bet it took a bit of patience too. TFS & have a great week.

This looks great and so much nicer than a bottle bag. I have given a couple of bottles of Champers recently and this would have been much more fitting for the occasion.
