I love a good storage space and I have a thing for boxes. I love them squarely, with clean lines, not decorated much, but pretty. So from time to time I am inclined to make them for myself and as gifts. I use either cardboard boxes, thick cardboard or wooden boxes. I use polymer clay, use acrylic paints or decorative paper to cover and decorate the boxes.
My latest project was a jewelry box for my dear friend's birthday. When visiting her, I noticed that she missed a larger jewelry box. I also took a photo of her wall and shelves while she was making coffee. I also measured the shelves, to be able to purchase a right size box, as a decent spy will do.
Finally, I made a plan and purchased a wooden box, paper, thick cardboard, lace, glue, glaze, a piece of felt and a button. I had a few brushes at home, sharp scissors,working mat and I was ready to start.
The result was very feminine, bohemian style jewelry box. I had the best time working on it. It was a somewhat ambitious idea and I was happy for being able to make it happen.
Here is the photo of the box:
My friend's room is greenish so the box fits in it perfectly.
Open and empty box:
I added a subtle thin lace to the bottom.
I used a green felt and white lace to make small bags for her necklaces and pendants.
This is how it looks when filled with jewelry.
There is a secret door here too.
Behind the door is a world of earrings.
Lace is there for dangling earrings and felt is for storing stud earrings.
A closer look at the earrings storage section.
It looks interesting when filled with earrings, doesn't it?
I hope that you like this one. I am currently working on a new box, same style different colors.
