STEP 1 - Crafting preparations
You need a super original last minute gift for your friend? Then we have the perfect idea for you, which always works! You'll find everything you need for your DIY project in our checklist:
- Larger wooden sticks
- Smaller wooden sticks
- Orange crate or other wooden box
- Hot glue gun
- Favourite beer bottles
- A few banknotes or vouchers
- Fresh herbs or flowers
- COLOP e-mark® create
- COLOP e-mark® ribbon
- COLOP e-mark® ruler
STEP 3 - Attach feet for the mini beer bench
Now come the feet. Take the small wooden sticks and cut them in half. These are then also attached to the bottom of the bench with hot glue. Press on well and wait a while until everything is dry. The back feet are a little longer because they also form the back of the bench. At the end, simply shorten the too long feet at the back with scissors to the same length as the front feet.
STEP 5 - Print on wood
Now you only have to print on the back of the beer bench to finish it. To do this, it is best to use a large wooden stick again. To ensure that everything goes smoothly and is printed straight, use our COLOP e-mark ruler. This helpful little something ensures perfect alignment. Then apply the COLOP e-mark create and print the imprint onto the stick.
STEP 8 - Print on cotton ribbons
Now you can also print our cotton ribbon with the e-mark create. The procedure is super easy: Take the matching ribbon guide, select your desired motif and simply move the e-mark create to the right. Quickly wrap it around the gift box and it will look even more attractive.
STEP 9 - final touches
Now place all the elements in the box and you're done! Add fragrant flowers or herbs to make your work of art look like a miniature beer garden! The money or vouchers in the shape of butterflies also breathe life into the whole thing! We hope you enjoy giving the beer-garden as a gift!
