With the holidays just around the corner,I thought I'd make some boxes for my jewelry creations.
I made a simple pattern and put them in a pdf (put into google documents) just for your personal use.
This is my first tutorial so it might be a bit picture heavy Bracelet BoxRing BoxNecklace Box TopNecklace Box BottomNecklace Box Incert

Open and filled with goodies
Now for the Tutorial:
Print out your desired box (I printed mine on card stock)
Cut on the dotted line.
Score and fold on the red line. I used a stylus and a ruler . You can also use a ball point pen that is out of ink to score. I use a ruler to make sure the line is straight.
Have a friendly helper
Stamp it,color it,or keep it plain.

Trace to a cereal box. Follow previous instructions.
Tada..An unique up-cycled jewelry box
Instead of using velcro on this one. I punched two holes in the sleeve part ,one on the flap of the bottom and strung ribbon threw to make a nice little bow.
Many thanks to my wonderful husband for helping me figure out Microsoft Publisher for the templates and to my daughter Riann for taking pictures.
