Jewelry Cube Box

So, are we all tired of turkey yet? Well, I am!  I hosted this year's Thanksgiving dinner and I couldn't have done it without my daughter. She helped so much in preparing the house and did about half of the cooking. I'm so blessed! Which brings me to this Jewelry Box. As a fund raiser for her Dance Ensemble, "we" sold jewelry and we're able to keep 75% of the profit -- needed to help buy costumes. I ended up buying about six of them and each one needed a box to put them into. 

The 3D Tuesday Challenge over at Paper Craft Planet came in just in time! Our host last week is Jinky and she shows us how we can make one of these cute little boxes. I made mine to be 2" x 2" x 2", which was the perfect size to hold each piece of jewelry. I then added batting inside the box to hold the necklaces in place. You can find the download link to her instructions HERE (scroll down to the end of the post). She used "cm" in her measurements rather than inches -- google "conversion charts" to get the exact measurements. I didn't have too much patience converting due to my headache, so I decided to just improvise and make my own template in inches.

That's it for today, but be sure to join me again on Tuesday, when it's my turn to host the 3D Challenge. Have a nice day everyone!

Adela, Isn't it the best when your children are old enough to really chip in and help in the kitchen? I love spending that kind of time with my daughter and/or son in the kitchen, as they both love to cook!

As for this box...what a great box to surprise someone special with a gift! I have a special friend who might get THAT special ring this Christmas. I am think of making a box for him to put that special ring in, hmmm. Will you give up your downsized measurements?
