Since it is the season of gift giving. I needed a few small trinket boxes for some special gifts. I didn't want to stick a beautiful piece of jewelry in a plain old white jewelry box, so I decided to make my own trinket boxes kicked up with BoBunny Silver and Gold paper for an elegant look. No wrapping needed.
Once my boxes were die cut from thick card stock using my Sizzix 657726 ScoreBoards XL Die, Box, Candy Drawer by Eileen Hull , I assembled them
according to instructions. I painted the edges with Luminarte Silks Glaze in Solar Gold and on the rims of the boxes, I rubbed in some Viva Colour Metallic rub in Gold. and
covered the exposed box with paper from the Silver and Gold collection.
I cut strips of paper, then ran them through an edge punch to create the
look of lace. I then wrapped the lace strip around my box.
Instead of the traditional bow, I created some little roses and festive
leaves to top the trinket box.The flower was die cut and before it was
assembled, I used a pearl pen in gold to edge the petals. they look like
those old porcelain roses rimmed in Viva Dimensional Pearl Paint Pen “Gold Pearl"
Here is a view of the boxes closed. Just slide out the inner box to
open. Wouldn't it be pretty to place some ornate gold filigree buttons
on the front of the drawers??
The boxes can be used for a variety of goodies. Candy would
be nice as well!! Can you imagine a few pieces of Lindt Lindor truffles
in the box??? yummmmm.....
Another idea would be to line the inside of your boxes in felt.That would make them much more elegant.
