Christmas Crush – Project 5

So it`s true, I`m not all about cards…it`s Friday and Friday gets a 3D project.  Today is something that could be very useful as a gift wrapping…especially if you are heading to a friends house for dinner.  I always try to bring a bottle of wine…and this year I have figured out how to wrap the bottle.  I don`t know if you remember last year I tried to make a bottle wrap and came up with a triangle box instead.  It did not fit the bottle.  I was on the right track but now I really have figured it out, with the help of a mathematician I may add.  Check it out.

      I would have to size it to the box but yes it could be. It’s open at the top so I would have to do a lid too. Glad you are getting the Christmas bug. I’ve been working on these projects since my birthday. Lol

    You don’t make life easy for yourself – working with glimmer paper and vellum! You’re right about glimmer paper shedding – unless glitter is encapsulated it will end up everywhere! I do have a tip for you; I use an inexpensive Sticky Lint Roller, to clean up glitter and all the other messy bits, I even use it on my Big Shot Plates and Silicone Mats. You just use it, peel off the dirty layer and you’re ready for the next lot of mess you make. Though don’t use it on cardstock (I know I’m an idiot!) for that I use a trusty Swiffer Cloth.
    Great gift idea, and it looks fabulous. 🙂
    Oh, btw, loving the Christmas Crush cards! x
