Belated Christmas gift …

This was actually given as a Christmas gift to someone who is – to say the least – a Dr. Pepper fanatic. His also received a 6′ tall display football player made of Dr. Pepper cartons. I collected some antique Dr. Pepper bottles and caps, and found this awesome vintage Dr. Pepper crate on ebay. To get an inkling of his Dr. Pepper paraphernalia addiction – he wants to do his office in a Dr. Pepper theme, complete with a vintage neon Dr. Pepper clock.
To give the wall art a little more “oompf” than just old bottles sideways in a crate, I got a reproduction pocket mirror from the 1960s and printed high-resolution Dr. Pepper clip art (from Dr. Pepper’s site). I distressed and inked the vintage postcards that I’d reprinted, and turned them, and some Club Scrap cardstock into coordinating rosettes, capped with the vintage bottle toppers. There’s still enough space inside the crate for a few more memorabilia pieces.
