This was inspired from Gifts that Say Wow. She put out a posting on "what to do with wood cut-outs". I had no idea! I have seen these and have always wondered what I could make. Jaiden and I went to Hobby Lobby today and walked down the aisles to see if I could figure out something to do. I saw plain wooden boxes and instantly thought Jewelry Box. I made this cute little box for $6.50. I think these would make a cute gift for a little girl for any occasion. Or, paint it blue and little boys could use it for their favorite rocks or coins.
Supplies: 1 hinged wooden box w/ latch 2 painted wooden cut-outs 1 pkg jewels 1 mirror E 600 glue (a wonderful invention!) piece of felt to cover bottom spray paint ( I used Krylon "Ballet Slipper" gloss)
1. Sand box lightly if needed. <
2. Very carefully remove hinges and latch. Paint box desired color. ( it needed 2 coats) Glue mirror inside the lid when dry.
3. Cut felt to cover the inside bottom of the box and glue in place.
