Hey there, it’s Amy from The Happy Scraps here today. Do you love summer time? I do, and I love getting outdoors and spending time with my family. One of our favorite things to do is head out on a picnic. Summer was made for picnics, wasn’t it? I decided I wanted to dress up some drinks for us to take on a picnic, but this would be a fun little gift to give to a friend or take with you when getting together with friends for a BBQ or picnic as well. Come along and I’ll show you how I put this Summer Picnic Quick Gift together.
I picked out some fun supplies from the Jen Hadfield Everyday Collection as well as some stickers from the Spring Fling Collection. Using the Everyday Pops of Color paper, I cut it to size, inked the edges and wrapped it around the soda crate box.
I measured the top handle part of the crate, doubled it so I could fold it over the top, and cut some Everyday Honeycomb to the size I needed for it. Then I inked the edges.
I attached it to the top of the box.
I cut a piece of Everyday Trellis paper and cut a triangle out of the end of it, creating a flag like shape. Once cut, I inked the edges of it as well.
I got the other embellishments ready. I pulled some stickers from the Everyday Cardstock Stickers and Spring Fling Foiled Cardstock Stickers. For the stickers, I used the baby powder trick on. I also used a card from the Everyday Foiled Cardstock Cutouts w/ Gold paper and trimmed it down to the size I wanted. I inked the edges of the card.
I mounted the flag shape onto the box, then started mounting the embellishments. I used 3-dimensional foam tabs to create some dimension.
Once I had everything mounted onto the box, I had fun drawing the dashed line from the bee to the strawberry. I thought it was a fun little addition to the project!
I finished it all off by adding a straw to each bottle of soda. I tied it on with some baker’s twine.
Now I’m all ready to grab it and head out on a picnic! Who’s coming with me?!
Aren’t the embellishments on the front so cute?
And the straws, it just wouldn’t be complete without them.
Whip up one of these cute little Summer Picnic Quick Gifts for your next little get together. It’ll be so fun!
