My Daughter's Jewelry Box

My daughter just turned 3, but she has already accumulated some cute jewelry. I wanted to find a cute jewelry box like when I was young, but couldn't find the right thing. I decided to make her one. I found these wood boxes at Michael's for $1. They are about 6"x9". I started by painting, but painted it a few times before I found the color I liked. The I found the right paper, and inked and added of course some glimmer mist. The grass is with brown ink, then clear embossed.

I glimmer misted lace to match the box.

 The butterfly is made on the spellbinder with silver aluminum. I alcohol inked, painted, then stickled. 

I covered the inside with paper, modge podged the whole box, then glimmer misted it.

Oh what fun to make this for my daughter. I can't wait to make more things for her and then someday, maybe she will be joining me!


  1. That is an adorable box. She's going to love it and cherish it for years.

  2. Wow, Krissy, super cute. Are you selling things on Etsy yet?
