Whiff of Joy Project of the month

It's that time again already, goodness me we are almost half way through the year!! Gulp!! This months project of the month for Whiff of Joy was to make a gift for Dad.

I have not seen or heard from my father for over 25 years now so this is definitely not for him! Instead as my hubby is one of the nicest, kindest and caring men to walk this planet (going all soppy now here yuk!!) I thought I would make this for him as a "Hubby's day" present. This little gift contains some of his favourite things lol - Chardonnay, Thorntons white chocolate and Thorntons fudge, he is going to be one happy man when he gets this.

I have not done any step-by- steps as the project was taken from the excellent tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers here. It's such a brilliant tutorial to follow, the box took less than 15 minutes to make and that includes colouring the image. I am going to do lots of these at Christmas time, a bit deeper so I can get slightly larger gifts in. This beats a bottle bag for sure lol.

Recipe:
Stamps: Whiff of Joy Champagne Cooler and Whiff of Joy Party Sentiments
Papers: K & Co and Bazzill
Tools: Scor-Pal, Circular and Oval nestibilities, corner rounder, Stampin Up Slit punch

Thanks for looking,

  60. What a fantastic idea with the wine bottle hanger being in the shape of a little gift box. Your DH is not going to know what has hit him ... sure do hope that you get to share some wine with him, otherwise you might have your hands full. Sorry to hear that you have not heard from your father in so many years. Hugs from Desire
