Unusual Gift Boxes & Bags

Keepsake Storage Box

Hi everyone, I had a panic the other day, as I thought I had lost one of my rings!

I many dotted around my craft room which isn’t ideal so I decided to make this pretty Trinket Box.

It’s a simple construction, however, it’s all the details that make it something special.

This is a 4.1/4 x 1.1/2 inside box, so just perfect to hold a selection of my rings.

I loved decorating the lid, I used my Prima flowers mixed with some leaves I purchased from Ikea. Underneath is a die cut doily and the papers used are the First Edition “Floral Fusion” collection by Trimcraft.

These are still available from Hobbycraft and Amazon

First Edition Paper PackTo make this box you will need…

1 piece of 8.1/4 x 8.1/4 cardstock.

Score along each side at 1/2″ & 2″

1 piece of 6.1.4 x 4.3/4 You need to score along the longest side, but it’s best to watch my tutorial below for better explanation.

1 piece of 4.5/8 x 4.1/2 cream card to mat the lid.

1 piece of 4.3./8 x 4.1/4 pattern paper to layer on top.

4 pieces of 1.3/8 x 4.1/8 pattern paper to decorate the sides.

1 piece of 4.1/8 x 4.1/8 pattern paper to decorate the inside base of you’re box.

1 piece of 4.5/8 x 4.1/2 pattern paper to decorate the inside lid.

1 piece of 4.3/8 x 4.1/4 cream card to layer on top.

Some ribbon or chain to hold the lid up.

I used some metal decorative feet I had in my stash. I’ve found similar on eBay.

Flowers or die cuts to decorate the top.

Check out my full tutorial below.

It’s fairly roomy and can hold a lot of jewellery as you can see below.
