Crafter's Castle Challenge · Taylormadecards4u Inspiration Team

Carpe Vinum!

I don’t know wine, but I do know what tastes good. My family owns an Italian restaurant and I have been introduced to the “good stuff”. I’ve sampled numerous varieties over the last fifteen years and I’ve narrowed down my favorite grapes to pinot noir and pinot grigio. My oldest son is the wine aficionado in our family. If he recommends it or pairs it with food you can guarantee your taste buds will be happy. However, I drink wine so that I can do something crafty with the corks!

Today’s project is part of the monthly YouTube hop for the TMC4u Inspiration team and we haved teamed up with the Crafter’s Castle Design Team. TMC4u is the new sponsor for the monthly challenges on the Crafters Castle Challenge blog and each team will create projects showcasing a vintage digital kit from TMC4u. The featured kit will be the prize for the winner of challenge and this month’s kit is the Passport to Italy!

I found a cut file by Jamie Lane Designs for this 3D wine bottle gift box in the Silhouette Design Store and thought it paired well with the Italian theme of the kit. (A full list of available supplies is listed at the end of this post.)

If you download as an SVG file, you can cut the images with other die cutting machines like the Cricut and Brother ScanNcut. The designer has also included a link to her blog where she posted detailed photos and step-by-step written instructions on how to put the pieces together. It’s super easy to assemble!

I decorated the panels of the box with digital backgrounds from the Passport to Italy kit that I resized using Photoshop Elements, and I “print and cut” the designs using my Silhouette Cameo.

The images on the box lid are enlarged tags and elements from the kit. I love how easy it is to be creative using digital designs!
