A handmade trinket box

craft, handmade, papercraft, trinket box

I found instructions for this little trinket box in a recent copy of DoCrafts Creativity Magazine.  It’s not quite how it looked in the magazine due to the fact I didn’t want to go out and buy stuff so I just used my stash and improvised 🙂

I also don’t have a die cutting machine – I can’t bring myself to spend that amount of money on something when I just make cards as a hobby and don’t make any money from them.  So instead – again improvisation on overdrive – I just Googled some images, printed them off and used them as a template – then I have to trust my craft knives and steady (ish) hand!!!

Once this was made I bought a box a Thornton’s chocolates – took enough out to fill the box and ate the rest myself :D.

It was a little gift from my son to his nana and she really loved it and I thought it was a nicer idea than just merely giving a box of chocolate.

  1. This is beautiful! Well done on improvising with what you have already. Nothing makes me sadder than people thinking they can’t be creative because they don’t have ALL THE STUFF. 🙂
