Photo or Jewellery Box

I loved the first Wedding Ring Box I made here so I made some more. I had a ball of a time and after the first prototype that took me forever to design I figured out the easy way out and just produced more and more using different colours. Now these ones have photographs in them, made for my dear friend Trish of her wedding pictures and a cousin who doesn't know she is getting it but she did an awesome dvd for our family last year and this is my thank you to her.

Using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur to cut out Fleur de Lis Motifs SKU: S5-043 for the top and bottom of the box. Using Document cover plastic to make the cylinder and lid, its a stronger plastic than overhead project sheets. I needed a handle to hang onto to open the lid so I cut 3 Fleur de Lis Motifs SKU: S5-043 and joined them together and glued to the lid portion using black cardstock. Made the white flower from Spiral Blossoms One SKU: S4-351. White ribbon is from Kazzaz and the black was from a $2 shop. Added pearls for accents. I cut 2 strips of Parisian Accents SKU: S5-034 and glued them onto the side and lid using strong double sided tape. The pearls around the base and lid are what is holding up the sides. 
I used Classic Hearts SKU: S4-136 in Pool Party and Island Indigo card stock for the top of this box.

This square box was much easier to design, I used Fleur de Lis Squares SKU: S4-318 for the base and top of the box and Classic Hearts SKU: S4-136 and Classic Scalloped Heart SKU: S4-137
Dies cutouts were run through my Xyron 5" Creative station

  1. Hi Bridget

    I've been looking through some of your posts and wow - you are so creative with your spellbinders dies. In fact, I can't take my eyes away from the ring boxes you made and keep stating at how you did them... do the photos all fold up to sit inside the box, then you pull them out? Most of all though are those lids/tops to the ring boxes - they are soooo exquisite. You have put so much love into them they are a real work of art!

    Thank you for visiting my blog on WOYWW. If you haven't figured out the answers to your own questions you left on my post - don't hesitate to get in touch via email - i'd love to chat with you.
