Picture of DIY Jewelry Box with Found Materials

This jewelry box was made with recycled materials I found throughout my home! You’d be surprised what you have stashed away.  If you were so inclined, you could easily purchase these materials fairly easily at any craft store. Once you realize how easy this is to make, your imagination will go wild!

Plus, depending on what kind of box you get, this project could be stacked (think several boxes of gradually smaller sizes) for show, or, you can get some of those “fake books” and hide away things that way! It all depends on the box!

Step 1: Materials!

Materials Needed:
Scarf or fabric
Foam*
Box of choice*
Optional: Glue of choice (E6000 worked for me)

Notes on Material:
The foam I used was actually a cut portion of foam from a bed cushion. You know, like those memory foam mattress toppers. I got a new bed, but didn’t want to throw it to the curb! Plus, I only had to use a small portion of it, so lots of leftovers for future projects.
Box of choice. I bought this box earlier this year at the craft store, and used it for a different project at the time. Craft stores, TJ Maxx, Ross, they all have these types of boxes year round, with all sorts of different finishes. Use a coupon and get it super cheap if you don’t have one around!
 
I have a book like that! That's a great idea :)
:) Thanks! I'm pretty pleased with it! If you try it, I'd love to see how yours turns out!
