Going to a dinner party this holiday? How about taking some after dinner sweet treats in a champagne bottle box. This is made using the large bottle die from John Next Door, it stands around the same height a real bottle would.
With the bottle die there are dies for the labels, cork, glass and bubbles. I wanted to have bubbly in the glasses so I die cut the wine with bubbles from cream card, over vellum and laminated it, then cut the glass from the laminate. This made them strong enough to stand up when attached to the box.
The acetate box is two pieces of fancy zigzag patterned acetate cut to form two sides each, they are then stuck into a green card tray that measures the width of the bottle die cuts.
I cut two bottles from dark green card, the same card as the base tray, then decorated them with the labels shapes cut in white and gold.
The stamp is from my stash, make unknown but it was perfect for this box. Using my stamp platform I worked out where on the card to stamp by laying the die down and lining it up. The little stars are die cut with dies from the bottle set, they allow the gold mirri mat to shine through.
The cork is cut from Stix2 cork sheet and stuck on with redline tape, which is what I used for making the whole box, nice and strong.
If you don't stick the bottles together at the top you can put a real bottle in the holder, but I preferred to keep it for after dinner treats.
There is also a small bottle die set available, that would make cute individual little boxes, ideal for wedding favours.
Whatever you are doing this holiday I hope you enjoy it, have a very Crafty New Year.
