21st Birthday Celebration

Well, its my brothers 21st birthday today! Happy Birthday Jonathan! It was easy figuring out what to get him this year. It just took a quick run to the liquor store!! I purchased a wide range of nips (21 in total) which included vodka, tequila, whiskey, etc. It is a sampler if you may haha. For a similar gift, see my liquor and lottery ticket bouquet here.

To make this, you need:
  • Nips of alcohol
  • Wooden skewers
  • Strong tape
  • A Foam block
  • A Box
  • Shredded paper
  • Scrapbook decorations
First: Decorate the box with you favorite bubble letters, stickers, and scrapbook decorations.

Second: Place the foam block in the box.

Third: Tape each nip to a wooden skewer. I used packaging tape, which seems strong enough to hold even the glass bottles.

Fourth: Push each skewer into the foam block.

Fifth: Place shredded paper around the skewers to hide the foam block.

This is what the back looks like:
I'm sure anyone receiving this gift would love it! Not only is this a great birthday gift but the same technique can be used for any time of the year! Last Valentines Day, I made something similar for my boyfriend. My boyfriend always gives me roses for special occasions. To reciprocate, I decided to make a bouquet of things he loved: alcohol, scratch tickets, and cigars. He absolutely loved it and fondly named the bouquet a BROquet.
I'm sure any guy in your life would like a BROquet for their next birthday, anniversary, etc. Hope you have as much fun making it as I did!
