Project Description

Mulled Wine Holiday Promotion

This self-promotional piece makes a big impression on a modest budget. I cut a holiday pattern out of a mailing tube using a laser cutter and lined the inner tube with red foil wrapping paper to make the filigree pattern stand out.

Inside the kit was a small bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon, a cylindrical tin container with a mulled wine spice mix, and a recipe to make a warm, aromatic, mulled holiday wine. The recipe made a single serving and directed recipients to a landing page on my website, where they could download the full recipe, and see some of my new client work.
