Paint your DIY-jewelry-box with the color of the color of your choice. Be more layers and allow to drylet.br> follow the top of the box on a piece of scrapbook paper (on the back). You’ll also want to track and/or measure the sides, so that you know what paper you need for this.
Cut your papers to fit your box. I cut the papers, the pages fit exactly, and I cut them to fit the paper for the top, a little within the boundary, so that some of the color would show.
Add Mod smorgasbord on the top of the box and smooth your paper down. Let it dry for 15 – 20 minutes and then Mod smorgasbord of over the top. Repeat with the sides.
I added a piece of coordinating paper to the top in the same way. Aside the box, to let it dry.
Now it’s time to make your clay butterflies. I had no idea what I was doing, but I thought it would be shapes to make fun, to use the Martha Stewart silicone, butterflies for the tip. So I warmed up the clay with my hands and smooshed it into the molds.
Then I carefully removed the clay from the molds and used a sharp knife to trim the edges. Make sure that this is on a cutting surface. Then you will be in the oven according to the instructions.
After you bake are finished, stick them (and other ornaments) on the top with craft glue. Let dry.
was as soon As my box finished, I realized it needed a little something fancy around the top edge, because it looked kind of plain. So I have a thin strip of adhesive paper tape that coordinated with my paper pattern. Much better.
The result of this DIY jewelry box is, that Mama loves – of course, it was made by me. Ha!
