CWC Weekly Challenge # 70-No Cards, Must have polka dots and use yellow!

Hello and welcome to another Weekly Challenge with Cooking with Cricut.  This week we were challenged to make anything but a card and it has to have polka dots and the color yellow.  I needed to make a thank you gift for a couple we are close friends with, I made the wife's thank you gift already (which I posted earlier this week here) and now I needed something manly, LOL.  I usually buy the husband a small bottle of liquor each year for their holiday party, it started as a little joke but has carried on each year.  So since I know he has already used that bottle I thought as the thank you I would buy him another one but this time I wanted to put it in something with a little note of thanks on it.  I found this idea online at and it was perfect!  (I always look online first because why recreate the wheel, right!).  Here is her post with the details  The only difference I did was for my tag I used a 2 inch scalloped circle and a 1.5 inch circle.  I put the large stickles bottle inside, you could easily adjust the size and score lines to make it a little smaller for a small bottle of stickles.  I think next I will try and see if I can do like 4 or 6 and attach them to make a 4 or 6 pack.

I used my Cricut Art Philosophy to cut the 1.5 inch yellow circle and 2 inch scalloped circle but other wise it was just scoring and cutting in the right places.  I used my Pink by Design Big Thoughts stamp set for the Thanks so much sentiment (which was perfect).  Unfortunately, I do not have the bottle of liquor yet so I had to used a bottle of stickles as a stand in for the picture :) but you get the idea (you could also use it to give a bottle of stickles as a gift too because they fit perfect!).  I think I may do something like this but in a Christmas theme next year for the holidays, what a cute little "grown-up" gift!  Plus even if you do not drink (like me) those little mini bottles are so darn cute!

Thanks for stopping by, make sure you head over to Cooking with Cricut and get in on this weeks challenge!

PS: Because I used my Pink By Design stamps I am also "linking" this up over at for this weeks link up party!

Have a crafty day!

What a cute idea! I kind of like it with the bottle of Stickles - it would definitely work for passing on gifts for my crafty buddies. :)
