Picnic Silverware Caddy made from a Beer Box

This side holds the condiments & napkins
This side hold the forks, knives & spoons
Ok, so this was a super fun project that will be very useful as well.
The base of the holder is actually a Mikes Hard Lemonade six pack box.
My Stepdaughter got me this adorable paper stack called "Summer Fun" from ATD for my Birthday in June.  I love this cute ant paper so much and thought it would make the perfect background for my Picnic Plasticware Caddy.  I also used lots of other scrap pieces of solid papers too to create my die cuts, including Pink Bazzill cardstock for the hat and watermelon.  The adorable Panda bears are from SVGCUTS, along with most of the other pieces I cut out using Sure Cuts Alot and my Pink Cricut Expression from a kit I purchased called "Panda Picnic Party", what a great kit.  On the box itself all of the die cuts are from svgcuts except for one.  The only one that is not is the laughing sun on each side of the box and for some reason I cannot find who that file is from, grrrr...sorry about that when I figure it out I will post here later.  It is soooo adorably cute though.  Now on the Mustard and Ketchup bottles...I designed the labels from a file called Fancy Label from SVGSHOP blog.  They have plenty of other cool die cuts in their store as well at svgshop.com.  I chose to only use the bottom layer twice for each label.  The background in black I used the Blackout Shadow Rounded feature and the top layer I cut as normal after adding in my text, using Ariel font for each label.  Ketchup in red paper and mustard in yellow paper.   The paper and dicuts I attached with Mod Podge gloss.  The bottom is a wood shadow box that I found at the dollar store.  I removed the picture hanging hardware.  I covered
the bottom wood section with green dots paper by Prima -The Breathe Collection.  I then added a grass border by Penny Duncan Creations.  I then made my own little box out of cardboard to hold my salt and pepper shakers and attached it to the side after covering in patterned ant paper.  I am going to use this new cute little Caddy this weekend when I have family over for a BBQ in the Backyard.  Here are other views of the Box
