Without further explanation, below are the steps for making the Chic Jewelry Box Ornaments pictured above and featured in the February issue of Crafts N Things.
Don't miss my tutorial on the Shabby Chic Roses Jewelry Set while you are here. And- let me know what you think of the tutorials I have been posting as an extension of my projects published in Crafts n Things. Do you need more step outs? Are the tutorials thorough enough? Are they helpful? I don't get paid extra for them so I am eager for your feedback so I can decide to continue them or not.
Here we go...
These ornaments were inspired by one of my favorite movies, Breakfast at Tiffany's. They would be a perfect gift for a new bride and groom or used as a favor at a bridal shower or wedding.
I used a 2 1/4" paper box from the Ready To Go Board Products by C and T Publishing as the base of the box. To make the box lid, I recycled chipboard from some of my many empty packages of doggy treats. They seem to pile up and then I know where all of our money goes!
Anyway, I used the Marvy Paper Trimming Buddy to cut a 4" square from a portion of the box.
Place small strips of super strength double sided tape on the flaps.
Base coat the box and lid with Bahama Blue from DecoArt. It looks remarkably like the Tiffany's color blue.
When dry, glue the lid to the box with Aleenes Original Tacky Glue.
Let the glue set for a few minutes before proceeding. Cut 1/2"-1" wide satin ribbon in white to three 12" pieces. Place some glue on the bottom of the box and glue one length around bottom and sides of box.
I used rub on sentiments since I wanted to go over the ribbon. So, these wedding sentiments by Royal and Langnickel were perfect.
