Bottle Carrier or Storage Caddy

Hello everyone, today I’m sharing this really strong and handy Bottle Carrier or Storage Caddy.

Bottle Storage or Storage Caddy

I often get asked if I can make gift boxes, for wine and beer, but due to the heavier weight its always a challenge for those bigger bottles, even using the heavier weight cardstocks.

I used the Greyboard that I love from Every Crafts A Pound.

This is very strong and what I use for all my storage boxes.

This caddy comfortably holds 4 bottles of beer but alternatively, this can be used as a handy storage piece.

The papers I’ve used are from the First Edition ‘Wild At Heart’ pack.

I’ve found this still available at Hobbycraft here.

To make this you will need…

2 pieces of 6″ x 11.3/4 (A4) length greyboard for the sides of the caddy.

2 pieces of 12″ x 12″ pattern paper to cover the front and insides of the sides of the caddy.

2 pieces of 6″ x 4″ greyboard for the front and back of the caddy.

4 pieces of 6″ x 4″ pattern paper to cover the front and inside of the front of and back of the caddy.

1 piece of 6″ x 6″ greyboard for the base.

1 piece of 6″ x 7.1/2 strong card for the base.

2 pieces of 6″x 6″ pattern paper to cover the inside and outside of the base.

1 piece of 5.3/4 x 4″ greyboard for the divider.

2 pieces of 5.3/4 x 4″ pattern paper to cover both sides of the divider.

1 wooden dowel. Mine was purchased from The Works here.

Some decorative rope to decorate the handles, this is optional.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made it.

I love using these wooden dowels, they work well for many projects and can be painted or distressed to match your projects.

I love the screws I created, by simply punching some silver circles with my hole punch and embossing to lines on them to give them the look of screw heads!

  1. Love this tote so much I made one for each of the guys in my family for Fathers Day. I still have to add a bit of embellishments but i am having fun with these.

  2. Hello Sam, and thank you for sharing this wonderful tutorial. My granddaughter will be making two tonite for her PawPaw and her dad. I live in the US, so I will have to make a few minor measurement adjustments, but that will be fine. My husband is an engineer and can help. 😉 Again, thank you and have a wonderful wknd.
