A handmade 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.
