Supersized Pinch Close Faceted Box - Will Hold A Mini Bottle of Wine !!

I wanted a special project to showcase some very special papers - the new Spring/Summer 2018 Painted With Love Specialty Design Series Papers to be more precise.   They are just gorgeous.  Luxuriously foiled on one side and with beautiful complimentary designs on the reverse.

So I revisited an old project of mine, supersized it - and this is the result:-

After I had completed my prototype I realised that my supersized Pinch Close Faceted Box was large enough to comfortably hold this mini bottle of wine !  The bottle is not a conventionally sized mini bottle.  It's slightly broader than most, I think.  I did have a slimmer more conventional sized one (and no - I didn't drink it.  My daughter nicked it.  She needed a little present in a hurry and didn't replace it !).

Anyway that aside - it's a really generous size and capacity - approximately 10 inches long and 2 3/4" inches wide at the base.

Have you clocked the fabulous word die ?  This is part of a set of dies which are are free in the upcoming Sale-A-Bration brochure for orders of £90+ (excluding shipping costs).  Isn't that exciting?

I am very happy with how this project turned out.   I made a step by step video too :-

Well, I hope you like this and feel inspired to hot-foot it to your craft rooms and have a go.

I would love it if you popped back again and, if you haven't already done so, please think about subscribing to my blog which is updated regularly with my projects.

Happy Friday everyone - it's nearly the weekend.  Yay !!!

Ciao for now,
