Paper Beer Bottle Treat Boxes

Paper Beer Bottle Treat Boxes

Hey there! It’s Kira and I am back with another fun project using my Cardstock Warehouse papers. My husband was unfortunately born just 2 days after Christmas, which means that my creative juices and time allotted to crafts are basically drained. But this year he turned 40, so I wanted to do something fun for him! He loves sampling different beers and even brews his own as a hobby. I subscribed to a beer of the month club for his gift and decided to run with the beer theme for his decorations.


  • Cardstock Warehouse Cardstock Papers
    • Bagdad Brown Colorplan 100 lb.
    • Azure Blue Colorplan 65 lb.
    • Imperial Blue Colorplan 100 lb.
    • Gialloro Sirio Color 80 lb.
  • Bearly Art Glue
  • Cricut (with blade and scoring tool)
  • Optional: sticker paper and colored pencils  


I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to create but found these cute soda bottle boxes on Etsy. I knew I could alter them from “soda bottles” to “beer bottles” easily. I used Bagdad Brown for my bottles and the cut file from Etsy already came with the perfect dimensions and score lines added. So, I just used my Cricut to do all the tedious cutting and scoring for me!  (The bottle cap is included in the cut file too and I cut those out in Azure Blue).

The bottles needed labels. I toyed with the idea of using more cardstock and wrapping the label around the bottle, but ultimately wasn’t thrilled with how that looked. Instead, I used some sticker paper and my Cricut to cut arch shapes and write “forty” using the draw feature in Design Space. Then, I used some colored pencils to fill in the words to add a bit of color.

And here’s a look at a completed bottle!

The cool thing about these bottles is you could just make them as decorations by adhering the top section to the bottom. But they are boxes, so I wanted to add something fun inside of the bottles for my husband!

I decided to add little “coupons” inside, like, “Free 6 pack of your choice” and “Trip to the home brew store”.  Since the bottles are rather deep, I added crumpled up yellow tissue paper to add some height.

Lastly, I knew I wanted to create a banner for my husband. This is something I do for each of my kids’ birthdays but have yet to do it for my husband. He always jokingly says the phrase, “Lordy Lordy, look who’s 40!” so I knew I needed that to be on my banner. I used the same papers as I used for my bottles to keep the color scheme consistent. I added Gialloro Sirio because it reminded me of the color of beer.

I used my Cricut again to cut a variety of shapes:  circles in multiple sizes, beer bottles, and hexagons (to mimic the bottle cap shape). Then I sewed them all together to create a banner. Easy peasy! If you don't have a sewing machine, you could use hot glue to attach them pieces to your string.
