I guess I’m a little late posting this one, but you can always change the colors and the sentiment for any occasion, or save it for next year. The Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper has so many different patterns, even some that can be used for non-Christmas projects. I used the design with lots of tiny mints for today’s project. And the sentiment is made using the Brightly Lit Christmas Bundle. Both the paper and the bundle are retiring. They’ll be available only until January 2, or while supplies last.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Real Red card stock (CS) cut to 11″ x 12
  • CS scored along the 11″ side at 1-3/4″, 3-1/2″, 5-1/4″, 7″, 8-3/4″, 10-1/2″
  • CS scored along the 12″ side at 2″ and 10″
  • Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 1-1/2″ x 7-3/4″ (6 pieces)

Cut CS using Paper Snips, according to the diagram:

  • removed two smallest rectangles, and angled the leftover tab (in blue)
  • cut vertical score lines along the bottom just up to the first horizontal score line
  • marked along the top side at 7/8″, 2-5/8″, 4-3/8″, 6-1/8″, 7-7/8″, and 9-5/8″
  • cut from marks to the intersections of the vertical score lines and the first horizontal score line – this cuts away the green areas
  • used a 1/4″ circle punch to cut a hole in each triangle, about 1/2″ or so from the top – you may want to use a smaller circle punch, like the 1/8″,  depending on the size of your ribbon

Stamped with the Brightly Lit Christmas stamp set:

  • sentiment in Real Red ink onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock (CS)

Die cut using the Christmas Lamppost Thinlits:

  • sentiment

Assembled the bottle cover:

  • all score lines burnished with a Bone Folder
  • DSP pieces glued onto the panels of the CS cover
  • sentiment adhered to one of the DSP pieces with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • skinny tab on one side of the bottle cover adhered to the inside of the other end of the cover with Fast Fuse
  • bottle inserted into the cover to make the next step easier:
  • folded in one of the bottom tabs, then glued the opposite tab to it, making sure the tabs lined up with each other
  • repeated this step for the remaining two pairs of tabs, gluing them all together
  • ran a 22″ piece of ribbon through each hole in the top triangles, always front to back, then pulled it tight (not too hard or you’ll tear the paper) and tied a bow
