1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Jewelry Gift Boxes on: November 11, 2011 06:32:17 AM

 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 Embarrassed

 Closed and looking pretty.Necklace Box,Bracelet Box, and Ring Box

Open and filled with goodies Smiley

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 Wink

Stamp it,color it,or keep it plain.

Glue edges

Press tight

Assembling Necklace box

Use a piece of Velcro with adhesive. I didn't have any so I used a regular piece and glued it on.

Press on the velcro

Add a nice bow

Add Necklace

Slides right in

For an upcyling option. Print out pattern.

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.

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Snowmen,Reindeer and a train made from wine corks on: December 04, 2009 02:11:06 PM

I found these two tutorials



I didn't have some of the supplies so I made due with what I did have.
The texture on the snowmen is ground up dry rice mixed with paint.

After making the snowmen and reindeer I was goofing around with some wine corks and got the idea to make this train. (I have an unusual amount of wine corks,my neighbors husband is a chief and a nice restaurant and gives me bags of them when I ask)

The train is made from wine corks,toothpicks,hot glue,paint and rice(it's the coal) also a handful of eye hooks
