Amazing! Thank you so much for sharing this, and for writing up a tutorial! I'm always looking for new, inventive ideas for cardboard that would end up being thrown away. Going have to try something like this for sure!

They just come that way.  They're always bent up or crushed.  Maybe it's the brand I buy, I dunno.  At least I can use the jacked up ones for seed starting pots.

Excellent idea!

Real jewellery boxes are conceived for real jewellery, so they tend to be small. But I've got lots and lots of fashion jewellery (especially since I have started making my own), so storage is an issue.
I've always used chocolate boxes for earrings, with their perfect little "cups", but there are no chocolates as big as some of my large earrings - which are clips and screw on types, not for pierced ears, so hanging them is not an option.

Therefore your idea really inspired me.
I was thinking, for earrings, especially long and complicated ones, one could cut thinner tube slices and just squeeze them a bit to make long ovals instead of rounds.
And... use a real box with a lid - better for protecting small things. I'm thinking of large chocolate boxes again. Possibly reinforcing the bottom and sides as well as the lid with more cardboard pieces using your method, to make it sturdier.
