Celebrating Fathers- SOUS die cut reveal

Hello fellow Crafters..
Us girls over at Stuck On U Sketches are having out Die Reveal today and this time Sandi chose "CELEBRATE FATHERS!"..  Because I'm a silly wife and mother, I decided to create a silly father's day gift for my hubby.. He is a beer drinking man and I thought to create a six pack carrier for him as a gift.. but, since I cut it all from chipboard and pieced it together with glue, I'm sure its more for decoration than actual use.. 

It was a lot of fun to create and so, here it is:

I cut the beer bottles using my Create-a-Critter cartridge.. They are actually the Milk bottles, I just shrunk them a bit and stretched them using my Cricut Craftroom sofware.. The bottles ended up being not finished, since I did the update for CCR and my Imagine stopped working properly after that..
I will however, some how get the BEER text onto the bottles eventually..

here are a few close ups:

The tag I actually designed on CCR and just printed it.  Then cut it with my paper trimmer.. It was super fun and simple.. I actually have a tutorial posted on the right hand side of my blog's side bar for a tutorial on how you can create an original sentiment tag and just print it.

  1. What a fun idea! Love the way you made the little beer bottles. You could scan in one of your hubby's favorite beer labels, or find a pic of it on the web, then print it out and trim to fit? I don't know how that would work...just an idea. That stinks that your imagine stopped working right. :/ Anyway...love your project.
