Hi Friends! It’s Wendy Sue here today, sharing another quick and easy gift project! It’s summertime, and that means it’s picnic & barbecue season! Chances are you’ll be hosting or attending an evening or two filled with friends, family, good food, and fun! We were recently invited to a friend’s home to enjoy just such a night – and I have been trying to decide what to take to the shin-dig – besides a delicious salad and drinks! I decided to create a little bbq hostess gift for her; something she could use for future outdoor parties. This is the project I came up with:
You can never have enough mustard and ketchup for summer meals, right?!?
Here’s how I made it:
I cut the carrier(s) with my Silhouette Cameo. The carrier is actually for a milk carton, but it’s the perfect size for these bottles!
I used my favorite red tape to secure the tabs and create the carrier.
Repeat the process for a second carrier.
And use the same awesome red tape to hook the two carriers together, back-to-back, to create a double carrier.
I cut the paper strips (from the cut file) from striped paper and wrapped them around the outside of the carrier. This makes it CUTE and more sturdy at the same time!
Of course, I had to dress up the bottles a bit, so I wrapped each one with patterned paper and then used some of the printed die-cut shapes from the Chips to decorate them just a bit more!
I can’t wait to give this quick & easy little gift to my friend, knowing that she will definitely have a use for the bottles in the future! Happy BBQ season to you!
