Sparkling Cider Bottle Box

I was looking for some gift and craft fair ideas, and came across this bottle of Sparkling Cider. But then I had to come up with a box for them.  I scanned the internet and found a similar one but it had no details so I broke out my copy paper and designed a box.

I love copy paper for creating 3-d projects, as it takes me several times to get it all the right measurements.  This one I will say though was fairly simple. 

I would love to see your versions of this box!!!

Recipe for the above:
1 – 8 ½ x 11 Cardstock Whisper White
4 – 6 x 2 ¼ Merry Little Christmas DSP
1 – 3 ¼ x 2 Old Olive
1 – 3 ¼ x 2 Vellum
1 – 16” piece of Jute Twine
1 Green Sprig
Stampin’ Up! Basic Black Archival Ink
Embossing Buddy
Clear Embossing Powder

On the long side of your paper (11” side) score at 2 ½, 5, 7 ½, & 10
On the short side of your paper (8 ½” side) score at 2 ¼ and 7 ½

I have a YouTube on how to put this together, below.

And during the month of October, Stampin’ Up! is having a Buy 3 Get 1 FREE on most Designer Series Pack & Hostess Special.


Also, when you purchase $50 (at one time), you will a FREE package of our new Acetate Card Boxes in November from me!!!!  Please make sure you use the October Hostess Code – 4TGPFQYW
