“Lets Get Together & Drink About It”! Some of us may not have a Valentine’s this year but why not have a fun Galentine’s Day with your friends! You know I love a good boozy idea for Valentine’s Day. Do you guys remember “A New Kind Of Valentines – A Boozy One” from last year? It is still one of my favorites. I wanted to create a fun gift idea for a Galentine’s Day party! This concept is endless really, you can change the design of the box, add ribbon, vinyl decals and your drink of choice. What better way to start off the evening than with a few girlfriends and a boozy box to share. LOL Let’s not forget the Ghirardelli dark chocolate raspberry squares and fresh raspberries. Who’s ready for Valentine’s Day?!

I started out with my wooden box and wooden hang tag.
Then I taped off my design on both my box and hang tag and began painting my design. I did two coats on both.
you will then set them aside to dry.
You will begin by opening your Design window in Silhouette.
You will want to type out your hang tag message. Make sure that you measure your hang tag to ensure it fits.
Then you will send your design to print and cut window.
Now you will want to send your design to cut.
Next you will want to load your vinyl into your silhouette and select the proper cut settings.
Once your files have been cut unload your design and weed it.
You will now want to place your transfer paper on top of your design and apply it carefully to your hang tag.
Once you are done its time to assemble your boozy Valentine’s Day box.
You will want to use a 1/8″ drill bit and make a total of four holes. You will drill two holes on each side of the box a quarter of an inch down on each side and an inch apart from one another.
Then you will want to add your suede cording from one side to the next and attach the wooden bead to the end to attach both pieces and knot it together to close.
Once done you can add your Smirnoff Raspberry Mini Vodka bottles and your hang tag.
Now your Galentine’s Day Boozy gift is ready to be shared with your girlfriends!
What is one of your favorite Valentine’s Day treats?
