Make a Beautiful Jewelry Box

Make a Beautiful Jewelry Box

Or a box for trinkets or love letters or whatever. (Coupons?)

I used a wood cigar box and several Eco paper Arts supplies. You can make it as simple or elaborate as you like.  

You'll need: buttons or old jewelry pieces, gesso, cigar box, paint brush, scrapbook paper, and our eco embellishments (butterfly, hinges, and boho strips)

Basic steps:

  • paint with white gesso or a color to match your decorations, dry
  • glue your choice of background paper on top. I used our Ciao Bella steampunk scrapbook paper
  • tear pieces of the paper and glue to sides
  • use a script stamp and dark ink to stamp on top and sides of box randomly (or handwrite scribbles)
  • paint your embellishments: Gypsy Soul Butterfly of Gears, Gypsy Soul Hinge Straps Set, and part of Planet Earth Mixed Media Chips - Boho 
  • I used four of our Izink Nature paints to give the embellishments a burnt red look with highlights: blood orange, orange, yellow, and jungle green 
  • after embellishments are dry, glue them to box -- I used E6000 
  • glue buttons on embellishments and top of box
  • add chain (broken necklace) to butterfly -- run through holes in wings and glue
