Cheers! Wine Box

Measures 24”X 72”

Invited to dinner?  Start a new tradition of bringing a bottle of wine and packing it in your own, personally designed wine box.  Blank boxes are available and ready to paint at most craft stores.  I liked the idea of working with the natural color of the box and made my color choices based on that.  I left the cover unpainted to blend with the unpainted areas of the rest of the container peeking through the design.  I also replaced the plain cord that came with the box, with a black leather cord that looks rich but costs little.  A decorative gold and black button on sheer, black ribbon add to the elements that make this wine box a special gift to present to a dinner host.
