Floral Jewelry Box

Hi everyone! I am back with another project using Eileen Hull’s newest diecut from the Book Club Diecut Collection. I created this jewelry box from the Book and Pages, Trinket Box and Frame Diecut.

I started by cutting all the pieces from Mat Board and the sides of the “drawer” I cut two pieces from patterned cardstock. I embossed the top and bottom of the box with the Rosebud Embossing Folder (retired Eileen Hull). Next I used the Hydrangea ColorBox Blends to add color to the box. I applied the ink to a piece of glass watered down and added a wash to each piece. Before putting together I adhered a piece of plastic on the back side of the oval opening.

The drawer I cut from mat board along with patterned cardstock to cover both the inside and outside of the drawer. I put together according to the directions. 

I added a drawer pull and added trim inside the drawer to finish it off.

I cut from white cardstock a vine and flower from the Floral Arch and Words Diecuts. I inked and adhered to the drawer. I also added a button and Dew Drop to the flower.

I added flatback pearls to the outside of the drawer to finish it off. Be sure to hop on over to Eileen’s blog to check out the latest projects from the rest of the Inspiration Team! You can find Eileen’s blog HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

I also would like to submit this project for the following challenge:

As I was cleaning and getting stuff up to take to Goodwill I came across this music jewelry box that one of my step-daughters had. It was missing a drawer but I decided there was potential in maybe altering this later on. Well, almost two years later this is what I came up with.

I started off by taking the doors and hardware off.

Also I pulled out the dirty and stained velvet fabric that was inside each drawer.

I sanded all pieces lightly and added a coat of house paint sample that I had got for free at Lowes.

Next I measured the drawer sides and fronts, sides and back of the jewelry box and cut from the Robin’s Egg Blue Glitter CardstockMoss Green Glitter CardstockAwning Spa Glitter Cardstock to fit which I adhered all with Antique Mod Podge.

The inside of the drawers I lined with Aquamarine Sorbet Cardstock which I embossed the bottom with the Geometric Ring folder and added a little lace around the edges.

The door inserts I cut from the Sour Apple Glitter Cardstock and embossed with the Polka Dot folder. I also added Metallic Teal Dew Drops and a sequins to each of the door knobs and drawer pulls.

The back I carefully cut an opening for the music wind up and then adhered the Awning Spa Glitter Cardstock to the back of the jewelry box.  

For the flowers I used Sky Blue Glitter CardstockSour Apple Glitter CardstockGoldenberry Dew DropsIrredescent Classic Glitter Swirl Vellum and a variety of Robin’s Nest scrap cardstock to create these beautiful flowers.

If you have any questions about this project please let me know. Also please stop by the The Robin’s Nest everyday to vote on my project. All votes would be greatly appreciated.
