One Day Only - Who doesn't love a sale?!?
Sweet inspiration and a Seasonal Sale like no other!

Boxes Based on Beverage

Oh my goodness...who doesn't love a great box for adult beverages?!?!  Yep, it's getting cold in the Midwest and it's times for hot chocolate with a kick.  Below are some ideas I like to call BBOB (Boxes Based on Beverage or if you are sassy Boxes Based on Booze)  I had fun creating some great combinations that I would love to share with you so let's get to it.  If you would like to watch my Facebook Live where I assemble the box and talk about the process, you can find that here.

Here is a basic photo of how the box and lid will look, you will just change the measurements based on what box you want to make:

50 ml square bottle with a bag of mixed nuts - The treat bag is a standard pretzel stick bag filled to 4 in’ with mixed nuts (Finished box size is 3 ¼” x 4 ¼” x 1 ¼” tall)

  • For the bottom box – cardstock cut at 5 ¾” x 6 ¾” - score all sides at 1 ¼”
  • For the lid – cardstock cut at 4 13/16” x 5 13/16” – score all sides at ¾”
  • 1 ¼” x 6 ½” - coordinating cardstock to stabilize the inside. Score at 2” and 6 ¼”
    • This will be placed and adhered to the inside of the box to create a section in the middle and create more stability for your box – watch the video for placement if needed

Cocoa Bombs from Costco with booze 😊 – These cocoa bombs are approximately 2 1/8” tall and the ‘booze’ side will just about any size of single serving hard liquor like Rumchata, Bailey’s, Fireball, 50 ml bottle etc. (Finished box size is 4” x 5” x 2 ¼” tall)

  • For the bottom box – cardstock cut at 8 ½” x 9 ½” - score all sides at 2 ¼”
  • For the lid – cardstock cut at 7 1/16” x 8 1/16” – score all sides at 1 ½”
  • For this one, I recommend 2 pieces for the inside of the bottom box for stability
    • Cardstock cut at 5 x 8 ½” and score at 2 ¼”, 4 ½”, 6 ¾”. You will form a ‘W’ with this piece and glue the middle of the W together to form the middle divider section of the box.

  • Once together, it will now look like a ‘T’ that you will push down in the bottom of the box with the middle divider up. (Watch the video for placement)
  • Cardstock cut at 2 ¼” x 10 ½” and score at ½”, 2 ¾”, 7 ¾”, 10”. This will provide another layer on the inside edges of the box for the cocoa bomb side. I like to use glue for this piece so there is forgiveness where it is placed before it sticks for good.

  • I recommend a piece of cardstock that will help hold the cocoa bombs in place. For this piece, you will need a piece of cardstock cut at 2 ¼” x 7 – score at ½”, 3”, 3 ½”, 4”, 6 ½”. You will fold it like this:

 Glue the middle ‘V’ together that will form a stabilizing middle leg.

    • Next, fold the ½” score line on each of the other sides down in the same direction as your middle leg.
    • With a 1 ¾” circle punch or die, cut a circle in the middle of each of the large square sections.
    • With the feet side down, place in the bottom of the larger side of the box for the cocoa bombs to rest on.

Sutter Home 187 ml wine bottle and chocolates – (Finished box size is 4 ½” x 6 ¼” x 2 ¼” tall)

20211102_015334203_iOS

  • For bottom box – cardstock cut at 9” x 10 ¾” – score all sides at 2 ¼”
  • For the lid – cardstock cut at 7 9/16” x 9 5/16” – score all sides at 1 ½”
  • For this one, I recommend 2 pieces for the inside of the bottom box for stability
    • Cardstock cut at 6 ¼” x 9” and score at 2 ¼”, 4 ½”, 6 ¾”. You will form a ‘W’ with this piece and glue the middle of the W together to form the middle divider section of the box. Once together, it will now look like a ‘T’ that you will push down in the bottom of the box with the middle divider up. (Watch the video for placement)
    • Cardstock cut at 2 ¼” x 11 ¾" and score at ½”, 2 ¾”, 9" , 11 ¼”. This will provide another layer on the inside edges of the box for the chocolate side. I like to use glue for this piece so there is forgiveness where it is placed before it sticks for good.

For chocolate divider:

  • 2 pieces of cardstock cut at 2 ¼” x 4 ½” and score each at ¾” and 3 ¾”
  • Fold each of the ends down, then glue both pieces together just at one of the ¾” end to end.

20211102_001610560_iOS

  • 1 piece of cardstock cut at 2 ¼” x 11.
    • Score at: 1 ¼”, 2 ¼”, 3 ¼”, 4 ½”, 5 ½”, 6 ½”, 7 ¾”, 8 ¾”, 9 ¾”
  • Fold and glue as shown below (Glue each ‘V’ together):
