How to make a Jewelry Box

Maybe there are a lot of useless plastic empty boxes around your house; perhaps your jewelry is randomly placed in the room and looks messy. Then why don't we turn the old plastic box into a brand new jewelry box? It will be easier than you think.

And the idea of making jewelry boxes came from an accident~ One day, when I was cleaning at home, I found some useless empty plastic boxes. And I often make some items by hand. In the beginning, I just put it casually and loaded some trivial sundries along the way. Until one day, I need to go out for a short business trip and bring some jewelry to match my outfit. But I suddenly discovered that I did not have a suitable small and convenient jewelry box to install my jewelry. Putting it in my suitcase or bag at will can damage my jewelry, and it is also easy to lose my jewelry. After all, jewelry is quite expensive, and it is a pity if it is accidentally damaged or lost. So I was going to make a jewelry box myself. When I spent an hour or two making a travel jewelry box, I felt very fulfilled. And my friends were surprised when they saw the jewelry box made by myself~ I was astonished that ordinary plastic boxes can also make such exquisite travel jewelry boxes. So they think, why don't make beautiful handmade jewelry boxes for sale~ Maybe many people like it? At the same time, they also want me to make one for them. From then on, I think the jewelry box as a gift for girls is a good choice because every girl has her jewelry, which is exquisite. All jewelry needs a jewelry box to protect.

Project step-by-step

Step 1
Cut the cardboard and paste the cut cardboard with flannel
We need to cut the cardboard we need according to the internal size of the jewelry box. Cut the cardboard necessary for the upper and lower sides and the surroundings of the inner tube and the cardboard needed for the upper and lower sides of the outer lid of the box.

All the cardboards are glued on the flannel with glue according to the cut size.

step 2 

to make the outside of the jewelry box
We need two larger pieces of leather. Then cut it into two parts of 16.6 inches x 1.8 inches, two slices of 6.42 inches x 4.5 inches, and one portion of 4.3 inches x 4.3 inches. We use them to wrap the cardboard used for the top and bottom of the box and use them to cover the surface of the plastic box shell.

Step 3
Then we need two ordinary small plastic boxes or tin boxes;

If there is no corresponding leather size, you can cut four leather pieces around the actual box size.

Glue the cut-length leather prepared previously to both sides of the box. Be careful not to apply too thick.

Then, cut a larger piece of leather and glue it on the upper and lower sides to connect the two boxes.

Next, cut a 3.2-inch x 0.8-inch piece of leather. Fold it in half and use a leather awl to pierce a hole near the edge to let the thumbtack go through. Then use glue to cover the upper and lower sides of the box with the leather covers sewn before. Knock the thumbtack into the front of the box lid. Let the glue dry completely.


Step 4

Now we are going to make the inside of the jewelry box. Use a tape measure to measure the size of the knowledge, and then paste the previously cut cardboard with flannel on the inside and around the jewelry box.

Then take the cardboard we prepared earlier, cut it into the same size as the inside, and glue it with flannel. Poke 20 holes equidistantly with the compass. You can use these holes to hang earrings, studs, etc. When finished, use extra flannel to glue it in the middle of the inside of the box.

Step 5

Prepare a foam spool and cut the foam spool into seven ring slots of 2.5 inches x 0.35 inches of the same size. The front and back sides are connected to the corners of the edge of the box. So they need to be cut shorter. Cut the cardboard into two parts 3.6 inches x 0.8 inches, and one part 4.4 inches x 0.8 inches. Glue them to the flannel. Then place the foam roll and cardboard as shown in the figure below.

Finally, our jewelry box is finished; it is straightforward, right? Hurriedly start to try it. This box can store rings, stud earrings, necklaces, etc. This jewelry box is small and convenient so that everything looks clean and visible.
