Christmas Is Just Around The Corner

.....so time to start thinking about some gifts that you can make for your family and friends.
Today I have some trinket boxes which I made from paper mache boxes from the bargain shop.

These cute trinket boxes can be made from any size or shaped boxes. I have recycled a couple of little boxes I found in my stash.
Cover the base and the lids of the boxes in patterned paper of your choice. I have used double sided tape but glue of your choice would work just as well.
Now glue a strip of ribbon around the side of the base and then another ribbon/ lace/ braid of your choice just above the first one (see detail photo)
Glue a strip of lace around the edge of the lid and then a piece of ribbon/lace / braid above that on the flat surface of the box.
Cut a small piece of card in a shape to suit the box. I have used a Spellbinders Scalloped oval on one box and a heart on the other.
Cut out and “build” your Sara Kay image and attach it to the top of the box.
Add pearls or rhinestone and charms of your choice to complete you box.
