Wrapping Caddy {DIY and a winner}

This all started after I saw this post on Eighteen 25 over Christmas.
I fall madly in love.
Jump forward three months and I am just now making one, or should I say
I just now had a good enough reason to make one.

You see I got to meet someone I already considered a friend but
until this weekend our friendship had never moved out of the computer screen.

Kori from Paper & Pigtails has been someone I have grown to love and admire for many reasons. And I wanted to give her something as a wee little thanks for all she has done for me.

After a little trip to Sonic for a Cherry Limeade {YUMM-O} and a drink holder, I got to make
the Wrapping Caddy.

The caddy pre make over {I had already hold punched it though}. I hot glued all the bottom flaps shut. And after two coats of Mod Podge, I got to the goodies to go inside.

I took mason jars and taped them off and sprayed the bottoms a pretty blue. I filled two with The Twinery twine, by taking wooden clothes pins and wrapping it around them. Another jar I filled with fabric rosettes I made. And the fourth, I put clip board letters in.


When I Mod Podged, I had added a paper dolly to the handle.


I took plain white tags and add a little fabric ruffle to the bottom of them, then attached them to the caddy with wooden clothes pins.


I pulled the twine through the holes {I wish I had added those cute eyelets like on the Eighteen 25 caddy}. Great way to keep your twine on hand with a little pull.

Lastly I added a fabric ruffle to the box to cover up the Sonic logo.

It turned out WAY cute. I have a feeling I will be heading to Sonic for more Cherry Limeades, very soon.

Enjoy!
