Budget

Put a personalised spin on your gift wrap by designing a custom bottle bag with Cricut. It's a great way to wrap up a bottle of your loved one's favourite drink, and they're sure to treasure it long after the bottle's been emptied.

This bottle bag is a great project for beginners looking to take their Design Space skills that one step further. All you'll need to make this Infusible Ink bottle bag is your Cricut machine, Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets, a black Infusible Ink Pen and the Cricut Infusible Bottle Bag.

This project has been created using the Cricut Joy; however, it can also be created on the Cricut Explore and Maker machines.
