Birthday Boy Pop Box Set

Birthday Boy Pop Box Set - LOVE this idea!! Free prints on { lilluna.com } Fill with the birthday boys fav treats!

Today is the hubby’s birthday. He turned 29. He would probably die if he knew I was posting about him, but I don’t care – I just want to gush about how stinkin’ awesome he is. Not only is he a great father and hubby, but he’s my biggest fan, my favorite person, AND he’s my best friend in the whole world! I feel so lucky to have him FOREVER!!! Plus, he’s pretty hot, still flirts with me, and I LOVE spending time with him more than anyone!

I wanted to think of something fun to make him from me and the kids and decided to make him a Birthday Pop Box Set. I made one for Christmas and another for Valentine’s but realized I needed to make a Birthday Boy Pop Box Set too. Lo is always looking for snacks to have at his desk at work, so I thought this would be perfect!Β I originally saw the idea HEREΒ a few years back and have been wanting to make some for every occasion cuz they are so easy and fun!

I made it so that it can be for DAD, BOYFRIEND/SPOUSE or SON – all the boys in your life!!

Here is what you’ll need if you would like to make one too:

SUPPLIES:

-IBC Cream Soda Pop Bottle Set

-Paint/Spray Paint

-Washi Tape/Scrapbook Paper

-Scissors

-Jute/Twine

-Hot Glue Gun

-Treats/Snacks

-Pop Bottle Tags

1. Begin by washing out your pop bottles and letting dry completely. I usually get them all ready and let them set and dry for a day or two. In AZ they dry super fast. It may take longer for you.

2. Fill the bottles with the receiver’s favorite goodies.

3. I’ve used scrapbook paper in the past to cover the front of the box and the bottles, but this time decided to use washi tape. It’s just so cute and I’ve been dying to use it in a project. I got my tape at Target in the stationery section for a few bucks.

4. Spray paint or paint your box. I spray painted since it’s faster. Let dry completely.

5. Then I added strips of washi tape to the front to add a nice little touch that was easy and cute.

6. From there I saved, printed and cut out my labels. The first 6 circle labels are perfect for the spouse/hubby/boyfriend set. If you want to make this for your son I suggest not using the first two circles (vintage older guy) and then using the last two circle labels that are pics of a younger boy. πŸ™‚

I hot glued the small pics to the caps and then also hot glued a dot on the back of the bottle circles. Wanted to add a nice “guy-ish” touch and punched holes on either sides of the circles and tied them on using jute that I found at Walmart for $1.37.

7. Then I tied the jute around the tops of the bottles as well. Cute but not TOO cute – ya know?! πŸ˜‰

8. I then hot glued the front tag that goes on the box. I made tags that say:

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Happy Birthday, Hot Stuff!

and

Happy Birthday, Son!

CUTE. EASY. and what guy doesn’t like FOOD, right?!

And for an easier version you can just leave the cream soda in and not fill it with goodies cuz I’m sure the hubby would like that too!

The hubby loved this gift, and I’m so glad he did!!

And before I end I just need to embarrass my hubby one more time…

Lo – thank you for being my best friend!

Thank you for supporting me in all my crazy endeavors.

Thank you for sending me pics of you braiding and doing our daughter’s hair while I was out of town cuz it melted my heart!!

(especially considering he had never done her hair before!!)

Thank you for being my better half!

Thank you for helping me believe that together you and I can do ANYTHING!

Thank you for being so super-duper patient with me and my short comings!

And thank you for loving me unconditionally!

Can’t wait to spend eternity with you!!

Happy Birthday! XO

  1. OMG! just how cute is this. Thank you for all the details on how to make this fabulous gift. My boys and husband would love something like this. I would have to do it at my friends house as my husband is retired and would be home. But I just love your idea. Thanks for sharing all the supplies that you used to. Just fantastic.

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words, Pam!! Totally made my day – so glad you like the gift idea. Have a great week!

  2. This is so stinkin’ cute!! What a good wife you are πŸ™‚ I might just have to steal this idea for my hubby’s b-day this summer. Love the printable tags, love the jute, love it all! Oh, and how cute is it that our husbands tried to do hair while we were at SNAP? Mine didn’t quite get the ponytails in… he slicked her hair back like a boy! But at least he tried to comb it πŸ™‚ hahaha! Have a great weekend celebrating!

    1. Thanks, Holly!! And isn’t it funny how guys have no clue how to do girl hair? LOL!! I kinda gave my hubby some tips and he was so proud he was able to do my oldest’s hair. He would send me pics every day while I was at SNAP – too funny!! πŸ˜€

  3. Awww… so mushy. πŸ˜‰ Cute! I love this. I may have to do one for my husband for Father’s Day. Although, do you do anything to help the lids stay on good? It seems like once I’ve taken them off, they’ll just fall off real easy…?

    1. Hey, girl! Bummed I didn’t get to see you at SNAP last week – wish you could have come up! πŸ™‚ About the lids, I just snapped them back on. I had to push really hard but they snapped back on really well – hope that helps. πŸ™‚ XO

    1. Washi tape is the bomb.com!! It’s so fun and cute and I love that you can find it for pretty cheap at Target now. πŸ™‚

  4. My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find most of your post’s to be exactly I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content for you? I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on most of the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome website!

    1. You are so stinkin’ sweet, Vanessa! Thank you, friend!! Hope you are doing well, and I hope you have a great week. πŸ™‚

    1. You are welcome, Kimberly!! The kids loved that they could help with this gift. I may have taken over after it had taken 10 minutes to fill one bottle 1/3 the way, but still… πŸ˜‰

  5. My husband turns 30 this year so I’m always on the look out for ideas and I just love this one. I’ve bought him a flying lesson so may put pictures of planes on the bottles. Thanks for sharing.

  6. What a fun gift idea! My hub’s birthday is coming up and I’ve been trying to think of the perfect gift. He would love this! Thanks so much for sharing! πŸ™‚

    1. You’re welcome, Brittany! I hope he likes it… not sure how he couldn’t when it involves goodies and snacks, haha! πŸ˜€

  7. What a fantastic idea! My husband’s 30th birthday is coming up and this would be something cute to give him the morning of. Thanks for sharing!

    I would love it if you would link up at Watch Out, Martha!’s first link up party: Martha Mondays, starting tomorrow! Hope to see you there! (www.watchoutmartha.net )

  8. Kristyn!! I love your style, so your printables always make me smile! What a darling gift. You and your hubby seem like such a cute couple!!

  9. Love, love this idea. Guys are so hard to shop for. All guys love snacks so this is perfect. Thank you for sharing. I will be using this for the next man in my life with a birthday!

    1. SO glad you like it!! It really is a cute and fun gift that a guy will enjoy since food is involved – LOL. I already have a print set I’m doing for Father’s Day too. πŸ™‚

  10. Are you able to make labels that say Happy Father’s Day? I absolutely LOVE this idea and would love to make it for Father’s Day πŸ™‚
    Thanks!

    1. Nevermind, I just found the link for the Father’s Day labels πŸ™‚ I have 2 people to make these for… one is bday and one is Fathers Day, so I am super excited about this!! Thank you!!

      1. Hi Lauren!
        Saw your comment. I actually have another “Super Dad” Pop Bottle Set that is going up this week for Father’s Day. Stay tuned. πŸ™‚

  11. Thank you for this…I am making one for my dad for his 51st bday and I think he will love it…although I did make a slight adjustment I used duct tape for the box and will use it for the bottles as well seeing as I had it on hand

  12. you @stakkinchipz you can say that again, lil chuck mine as well step down now. lil twist all the way chuckie is ugly and holrbire, hes too hype and he thinks hes all that, lil twist is normal.

  13. Hi this is my first day on pinterest because I needed help on a creative gift for my hubby’s bday tomorrow. This is so perfect! the kids and I will put it together today. He will love it because he hates store bought gifts and is a huge snacker. thanks for inspiring me and sharing your ideas.

  14. Fist off, this is so cute and clever!! I NEVER know what to get the “boys”. This may be a stupid question, but how did you get the bottle caps back on without rjining them?
