Day 5 - Trinket boxes

It's day 5 of February fun (try saying that quickly!) and today we have for your perusal these darling little trinket boxes! These make a great gift wrap with a difference, or you could even give them as a gift in their own right - beautiful job Julie!
Supplies used for jewellery trinket box: box from Hobby Lobby, Crackle paint, Colorbox ink, lace from personal supply, jewellery brooch from personal stash, pearls from Kaisercraft


Supplies used for flower trinket box: box from Hobby Lobby, Crackle paint, Colorbox ink, 7 Gypsies tag, Prima flower


'To make the jewellery trinket box I simply painted the plain box from Hobby Lobby and allowed it to dry before adhering anything to it. Then I inked the edges of the box once the paint was dry. I used a hot glue gun to adhere the small lace trim and then applied to pearls to it. I bunched the lace haphazardly and pinned the broach to it. I glued a sheer ribbon on top of the box before gluing the lace and brooch on.

The flower trinket box was decorated in a similar way.

This is a simple, yet pretty way to make a little treasure box for someone special!'

Thanks for joining us for another day of February fun! We've got another 9 days lined up so hopefully there will be a little inspiration for everyone :) And don't forget to pick up a candy gram by Sunday for your Valentine! :)
