diy valentine’s day card box holder
Whether it’s root beer or craft IPA, cardboard six pack carriers have many uses outside of transporting your BYOB to a get-together. You can use them to hold napkins and plates at a dinner party to organizing office supplies. So the next time you’re at the grocery, pick up a six pack of something refreshing and start the Valentine’s Day crafting.
– Cardboard six pack carrier
– Ruler and clear tape and craft scissors
– Cardstock paper (Here’s an assortment of Valentine’s scrapbook paper for all types of crafting)
– Valentine’s Day stickers (These glittery heart stickers can be used all year long)
– Pipe cleaners and pom poms
how to transform a six pack carrier into a valentine’s day box
1.: Cut the dividers within the six pack. Turn the carrier over and tape the sides so the carrier stands straight and upright.
2.: Measure of the height and width of the carrier and cut the cardstock paper accordingly. Cover the front and sides of your six pack.
3.: Since the red cardstock didn’t fully cover the sides, I used a second piece of paper to finish up the sides
4.: Sketch out some wings. These will be attached to the inside of the six pack so ensure they fit within the six pack. You may need to re-measure the width, like I did!
Once cut, create a fold. Glue the folded part and affix to the inside of the six pack.
5.: Decorate the wings to make it look like a butterfly.
6.: Cover the carrier handle with some cardstock. Create a hole for easy carrying.
7.: Create antenna using pipe cleaners and pom poms. Affix to the inside of the six pack with tape.
