Huge Prosecco Bottle Box Advent 21 - #236

Now this took some doing in under 30 mins, but we got there. This is such a pretty box for a specific brand of Prosecco (or any other bottle with the same diameter (2-1/2" or 6.25cm). The box is 8-1/2" (21.5cm) tall and has a snug fit lid - and there in lies a tale, which we will come to.

I have been wanting to make a box like this for a while now, so have had the bottle (full and unopened) sitting on my desk. I think some of my visitors have wondered if I took a quick drink in the afternoons (trust me there have been moments...but no!)

Now I really should apologies that I have not worked out metric measurements for this one, the imperial ones broke my brain, and some of them aren't actually measurements - watch the video and you will get what I mean by that. But I had to share the project anyway, because I am so proud of it!

Base - 8-1/2 x 10-1/2". With the long edge at the top, score at 2". With the short edge at the top, score every 1"
Top - 4-1/2 x 9". With short edge at the top, score at 2". With the long edge at the top you need to score at 'a hair of a smidge' over 1" (not nearly as much as 1-1/16"). Now you understand why I said that this was not really a measurement!
