Metal Trinket Storage #G45Box
For our January Challenge, I decided to make a box in which I will store metal jewelry and trinkets for scrapbooking. Here’s my starter kit:
I wanted to add some gold accents, for this I used washi tape.
Next, I cut out rectangles from Voyage Beneath the Sea – Deluxe Collector’s Edition
for pasting the inside of the ATC Box.
First I glue the sides, then the bottom of the box
Now I cut out the rectangles for pasting the box outside
Next, I prepared paper to decorate the outer part of the box, which has a window
Given the width of the window, I cut out a rectangle from one part
Before gluing the resulting blank, I covered the window in the box with gold tape
The drawer is now beautiful, but not yet functional. I would like to have sections that do not mix metal decorations
Сut out 2 rectangles of such sizes from binding cardboard so that they fit snugly into the box. In the middle of each, I made a cutoff of 5 cm in height and made a hole 1 millimeter thick (which corresponds to the thickness of my cardboard) on one cardboard above the cutoff, on the other below (see photo below)
Joined cardboard by gluing them together
Now I pasted this divider on all sides with gold tape
To complete the design of this divider, I cut 4 5.6×12 cm rectangles out of paper and punched each one at the 2 1/8 inch mark
Now the box is ready. It is very convenient to use such a split. For example, now, this is a box for metal jewelry, and if you take it out and divide, then you can perfectly place a mini album there!)) Frankly, I will do so sooner or later, because I really want to create an album from this amazing collection!
so that the bottom of the box does not shuffle, I glued improvised legs to it
It is advisable to glue a piece of transparent plastic under our window so that nothing spills out of the box. I will definitely do so later. Now I did not glue the plastic so that it does not glare in the photo
That’s all. Now you can decorate the top of the box if you want. I did it succinctly, with a hint that metal jewelry should be kept inside. ~Marina
