Cut a rectangle out of green paper to create your label. All beer bottles are different, but the width should be around 3 鈥 3.5 inches.

Remember when we made wine bottle labels? You鈥檙e going to use the same technique here. Mark off an imaginary two-inch rectangle and create your image between those lines. This way you鈥檒l be able to read your funny saying without the bottles curve getting in the way.

Or, if you鈥檙e feeling lazy, rock your new labels on preexisting beer.

Ditch the cardboard and create a reusable 6 pack carrier. Using a laser cutter, download the attached file and adjust the size to fit your found bottom. Ours was 5 x 8 inches. Print out the sides to your case and nail them onto your base.

If you don鈥檛 have access to a laser cutter, try hitting up Home Depot to see if they have anything that resembles these sides, or the shape of a bird house.

Use a gold paint pen to add a unique spin to your beer carrier. Want to step it up a notch? You could even attach a bottle opener to the side.

Fill it with beer. This carrier is great for cans or shorter bottled beer.

The most amazing thing about a laser cutter is how easy it is to edit a file and print it out in a semi-different shape. This carrier is taller so it fits any type of bottle.

And of course we had to make one out of our favorite material, acrylic. A beer carrier gilded with gold leather and a gold handle = the best.
