My brother sent my dad a bottle of wine that arrived in stains and shards…I decided I’d try my hand in the “shipping” containers”.

Very nicely done! Love the 3d lids. My mind is already reeling in terms of future Christmas gifts!!

I don’t think they will make it intransit. Please save yourself the embarrassment and express ship one to me first as a trial run.
I will provide you with feedback on design changes if any are needed. We will keep at it, till you get it right!

I am a wine drinker but if I received a bottle in that box I would throw the wine away and keep the box. Send me a couple as well, just for testing the shipability of course.

Guess i need to stop buying wine already in its own cardboard box, now that i have inspired to make my own boxes for those pesky round bottles.

Those are great wine boxes. I made some boxes for wine this Christmas as well. Thanks for a great idea for next years Christmas wine boxes.

Beautiful. The lid design reminds me of that old Qbert video game. Pack those bottles in some nice plane shavings and I’m sure they will survive the trip.
