Another Gift Package Idea

Happy Friday Everyone!  Hope you are all staying warm.  It is freezing cold here in Michigan today.  I think the wind chill was about -9 on my way in to work this morning.  We also have a light dusting of snow.
Now on to the project.  My daughter in law asked for a stockpile of Bath and Body works hand soap for Christmas.  Since I was able to get several bottles at the Outlet on sale, I was trying to think of a cute way to package them.  I bought six bottles and instantly thought 6-pack (and I don't even drink beer).  I covered the six-pack holder with several patterns of Cosmo Crickets, Early Bird paper for a fun cheery look that would work year round.  For a fun embellishment I cut the flower out of felt with a Sizzix die and my Cuttlebug.  I'd been wanting to try to cut felt and love the way it cut.  I will be doing this again for sure.  The only stamping on this project is on the tag.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.  I'd love to hear what you think.
