Jewellery Box – DIY

mgfabox.-Cover

A gift for each of the grandmothers.

If you follow the blog you know how I love anything personalised.We came across the boxes on a trip to our local PNA and they weren’t to badly priced at R 26.00

I already had the spray paint from a previous project  and had my local printer do the gold vinyls after I designed them on Word and PDF-ed them.

What  you will need:

  • Box – You can select the size
  • Spray paint or an acrylic paint and brush – Once again you can select the colour
  • Personalised Vinyls or Letter Stickers
  • Marble Contact Paper – Optional
  • Utility Knife or sharp scissors for Contact paper
  • Ruler and Pencil to measure Contact paper

To do:

  1. Start by unscrewing all the little hinges and the clasp – set this aside.mgfabox.02       mgfabox.03                         
  2. Lay down newspaper or a plastic in the area you will be spraying – remember this needs to be a well ventilated area. If using the acrylic paints make sure your brushes are clean and your work surface is covered.
  3. Spray and allow to dry  – you may want to then do a 2nd coat if you feel you need to.I did the 1st coat with spray paint and then used my white acrylic paint and brush to finish it.mgfabox.05
  4. Measure and cut out the Marble Contact paper for the inside of the box and adhere it to the inside of the box (inner base and inner lid)  – Remember this is optional and you can just as easily keep it the same colour as the outside of the box.
  5. Screw in all the hinges and clasp.
  6. Add the Vinyl Names on to the lid of the box
