Hello Stampers and crafters today I am joining  the One Stamp at a Time blog hop again this month.   This months theme is Birthday Bash.   I know that if you’re like me you are always in need of that last minute gift idea.   So I created a card, decorated two bottles and created a carrying box for the bottles.  I picked up these bottles at Target in their $1 bins.  I think they were $3 for both.   Which doesn’t break the bank.  This would be a good thing to stockpile and keep on hand.

Here’s a picture of my card that I created for today’s hop.

I used a standard card base in Rich Razzelberry and stamped presents all over the top section in Rich Razzelberry Classic ink.   Next I cut a piece of the paisley and posies Designer series paper (the rich Razzelberry houndstooth pattern) and layered it on a piece of Very Vanilla.   I stamped the Surprise in the new Tin of Tags stamp set in rich Razzelberry and then added the happy birthday from Balloon Celebration.   After I stamped I cut it out with the layering oval framelets and cut a scallop oval in Mint Macaron and layered it on my card base.

For the box I used rich Razzelberry cardstock cut at 6 1/8 x 9 and scored at 2 and 4 3/8 on the portrait side and then 2 and 6 5/8 on the landscape side.  Folded and cut up the score lines for a standard size box.  For the insert I used one piece of rich Razzelberry cut at 2 x 11 scored in half and another cut the same but scored at 2 3/4 on both ends and attached them together inside the first piece.  I cut the handle using the layering oval and attached it on the inside of the box where the bottles sit.

To finish off the bottles I wrapped them with a piece of matching DSP that had both rich Razzelberry on one side and mint macaron on the other.   This was all attached with tear n tape.   To finish the box I stamped Surprise in rich Razzelberry and cut it out with the layering ovals along with a rich Razzelberry scalloped oval and attached it to the box.
