Steps You Need To Follow To Make A DIY Jewellery Box

Step 1: Prepare square boxes

Jewellery Box DIY Craft

Let’s start with decorating the sweet boxes. Take a sweet box and start taking measurements with a ruler and pencil. Mark 4.5 inches on all the sides of the box. This is to make the box square and equal from all the sides. Turn the box around and in the bottom, draw a 4.5-inch long line and cut the box using a cutter. This way, you will get a square box. However, due to trimming, one side of the box will be uncovered and thus, use the side of the trimmed layer to prepare the 4th side of the box. Cut the side with a cutter and using the glue gun, stick it on the box.

Step 2: Assemble the sides

Jewellery Box Utility Craft

Stick the sides properly and let this box get dry. Repeat the process for another box and make a square box from another sweet box. However, we still need to work on the second box. Draw a 1-inch line on the 4 sides of the box from the top and cut this 1-inch layer form the top. This way, the second box will become shorter in length than the other.

Step 3: Prepare the base/ stand

DIY Jewellery Box Utility Craft

It’s now time to prepare the thick base of the box. The base needs to be broader than the box of the box and thus, we will use the thermocol sheet to cut a 5.2inch top for the box. Take a thermocol sheet and take measurements of 5.2 inches from all the sides. You will get a square formation. Cut the square using a cutter and keep it aside.

Step 4: Cover the inner boxes

Jewellery Box DIY Utility Craft

We will prepare the inner base of the box and thus, cut a pink paper by measuring the box size and marking it on the paper. Use the scissors to cut the sheet. With the help of glue, stick the sheet inside the box and let it get dry. Also, measure the sides and cut the papers using a scissor. Stick these paper stripes in the box using glue and let it stick properly. You can use fevistick to stick the small strips on the sides. This way, prepare the inner covering of both the boxes with light pink paper and the inner base is ready.

Step 5: Merge the boxes to prepare a jewellery box

DIY Jewellery Box Craft

It’s now time to stick the boxes together and prepare an openable jewelry box. For this, take the big box and reverse the small box and place it over the big box. Take some buckram cloth and stick it on both the boxes. This cloth is to connect the boxes and promote opening and closing of this box. On one side of the box, stick buckram cloth using glue. With this, your openable box is ready!

Step 6: Use printed sheets to decorate the box

DIY Jewellery Box Recycled Craft

We now need to make the boxes look decorated and pretty and thus, take your favorite printed paper and mark the measurements of both the boxes on printed sheets. Take accurate measurements using a ruler and pen and cut the paper. We need to cover the entire box and thus, take long papers. Using thin strips, decorate the sides while using square pieces of printed papers, cover the top and base of the box.

Step 7: Cover the thermocol ( Styrofoam) base

Jewellery Box Recycled Craft

Now it’s time to decorate the thermocol base. Thus, take a pink printed paper and stick it to the thermocol sheet using glue. Cover all the sides and top of the sheet. This way, the box and base f the box are decorated. Now, top the thermocol sheet with a jewellery box. Take some adhesive and apply it to the sheet. Stick the box on the sheet and let it get dry.

Step 8: Make the compartments and mirror

Jewellery Box DIY Recycled Craft

We need to make the compartments of the jewellery box and thus, take a cardboard or thick sheet and take the measurements using a pencil and ruler. We will make 3 partitions this, cut a long 4.5-inch long strip and one strip half of 4.5 inches. Cover these strips with pink paper to make them look decorative. Thus, take the printed pink paper, apply glue and stick it to the sheet pieces.

Step 9: Stick the mirror and compartments

DIY Jewellery Box Best Out Of Waste Craft

We also need to stick the mirror to the base and thus, get a small mirror. Place it on the chart paper and cut the segment of chart paper. Stick the mirror to the chart paper to give it more strength. To create a frame, take a brown paper and place the mirror on it. Take measurements and cut the brown paper slightly bigger than the actual mirror. Apply some glue on the base of the mirror and stick it to the brown paper. Fold the ends of brown paper which will work as a perfect frame for the mirror and stick it using glue.

Stick decorative tape on the brown paper to make it look more glorious. Stick the tape to the frame.

Thus, take the long stripe and stick it in between while taking the small strip and stick it between any of the sides. Apply proper amount of glue in the bottom and stick the compartment strips well.

Step 11: Add finishing touches

While rolling the paper, when you reach the end of the paper, apply some glue to the corner of the paper and continue rolling. This will make the paper stick easily to the newspaper.

Remove the straw from the paper roll and use it for rolling the other newspapers. Perform these steps for all the papers you trimmed in equal sections. This way, you will get multiple newspaper rolls using a single straw! Here you are done with a huge task now!

Apply glue and reverse the rolls which you glued in the upwards direction. This way, the second horizontal roll you glued will get tightly sandwiched between the vertical rolls and you will get a strong upper part of this entire construction!

You will get a thick and beautiful criss cross pattern which will give the handbag a strong base. Trim the extra ends and part form the edges when you get this mat like structure.

To give this mat a perfect finishing, stick the roll ends with glue and make it perfectly square. Cover all the 4 sides and make it look perfectly done! Also make 2 such small mats with newspapers for preparing the sides.

Step 7-

Now, it’s time to give a perfect look to this mat. For this, take a bow, add some water and glue. Mix this solution and apply it on one side of this paper mat. Buckram cloth is a cloth which gives a very natural and cool look to the DIY objects. Thus, to give a covering to this newspaper mat, we will use buckram cloth. Paste this cloth on the newspaper mat and stick it. Stick the ends properly with a glue gun and seal it.

Give these sides a perfect finishing while sticking the ends but let some ends remain as it is. This will help you help you stick the sides to the handbag easily. Now, stick these sides in the interior of the folded bag thoroughly. Press it nicely and let I get dry.

Keep the belt long as possible which you can carry comfortably.  Cut this 1 inch wide and long stripes with a scissor. If the strips are not long enough, stick 2 strips and make a long strip.

Broaden the long strip on the table and make it flat. Apply glue on the strip and paste the jute strand on the cloth.  You will need to make 5-6 such layers of juts strands on the cloth. Fill the entire strip with jute and let it get dry.

Steps To Make A Decorative Craft Using Soap Paper

Step 1- Cut the soap box

Soap box diy craft

Let’s start by decorating the soap box. Get a huge soap box, ideally a pack for 2-3 soaps. This is an ideal sized box which will turn into a cute little storage box. Take the soap box and measure it using the ruler.   Open up the box and make markings 1.5 inches inwards from the corners.  Draw the line from the folding marks to the bottom of the box. Make the markings on both sides of the box and cut the box from the folding to the bottom.

With this, you will get both the sides trimmed and open. Keep the front and back of the box as it is. Now you will get 4 different parts of the box which you need to paste these parts using glue.

Step 2- Give the box a finishing look

Once you stick the bottoms, trim the extra paper in the front folding of the box. This way, the length of the folding will be equal from all sides. Now, measure the width of the top of both the sides. Mark the measurements and draw it on the main front folding of the box. Keep the folding of the same length and draw a line in centre using ruler and pencil.

With the help of scissors, trim the bent top of the front folding and with a cutter, slightly mark and engrave the ling drawn by ruler. This will make all 4 sides equal and easily foldable which turns into a cool storage bag! This will give you a wide frame shaped bag.

Step 3- Stick the sides of bag

Soap box bag craft

Give the back opening of the box a little building look with the help of scissor and to attach all the sides, using glue. On the edges of all the 4 sides, apply some glue and stick the corners. Also use a packaging tape to seal all the sides. Now, just the top of the bag is open and all other sides are sealed. To make a handle of the bag, trim a small space form the top of the box using cutter. Make 2 small rectangular spaces which appear on the centre when you close the box.

Step 4- Decorate and cover the box

DIY Soap box bag craft

Anything looks incomplete if proper finishing and coating is not done. Thus, to get a beautiful covering, choose a bright colour paper. Take the measurements of the printed paper to cover the sides of the box. Stick the printed paper on the box and paste the printed paper on all the sides. Manage to cut the perfect sizes of the paper similar to the box measurements. On the top of the box with which the box opens and closes, we will apply colour paper while on the sides, we will use printed paper.

With the help of cutter, cut the small rectangular spaces on the colour paper which we made previously on the box.

Step 5- Make the handle of the bag

Soap box recycled craft

To make small and pretty storage bag, we will need beautiful handles. Cut the handles in a magnet shape and with the same measurement of the 2 rectangle spaces we made on the box. Make 2 same sized shapes with printed paper while one large sized handle with colour paper. The small printed papers will be used to top and decorate the colour paper handle.

On both the sides of colour paper handle, stick the small printed paper handles we made. Bend the ends of the colour paper handle, insert the handle in both the rectangle spaces and apply glue to the folded ends. Stick these ends with the top of the box and let it get dry!

Step 6- Give finishing touches to the bag

Soap box utility craft

As we all know, the bags have beautiful buckles or buttons and so, we too will prepare a beautiful closing buckle for our small bag. Just like the handle, prepare a magnet shaped handle, but of small size. Stick this small paper on the front of the bag where we have a bulging opening. In the centre, stick a huge pearl which will work as a buckle for this small bag!

The toothpaste box is the base of this craft thus let’s starts with the toothpaste box. We will need 2 boxes one for the base and one of the compartments. Take first toothpaste box and do markings. Take the measurements on the sides and front of the box using the pen and ruler. These markings will be done to get a smooth opening of the box.

Take another box and make equal partitions. These markings will be used to make different compartments in the jewellery box thus, make 4-5 equal partitions depending on the length of the box.

Step 2- Cut the jewellery boxes

Once the marking is done, cut the first box using a cutter. Cut from the side and from the front of the box thus you get an easily open able box. Now, cut the other box using the cutter you will get 4 compartments out of the box. We will arrange these free compartments in the inner box later.

Step 3-Paint the compartments and box

We need to colour the main toothpaste box and thus, we will sue white colour. In a bowl, add some white colour and water. With a brush, apply white colour to the interior of the box. To give the jewellery box a unique look, we will paint the compartments with different shades. Thus, colour the compartments with different colours. Paint the interior and exteriors with red, yellow, green, blue and such bright shades.

Step 4- Prepare the printed paper

Once we get all the compartments painted, let them dry. It’s now time to cover the main toothpaste box with the printed paper. For this, take the printed paper and take the measurements of the box on the paper. Consider all the four sides along with left and right side of the paper. Mark the measurements on the paper and draw it using the pencil and ruler. Once done, run the cutter smoothly on the paper.

Don’t cut the paper as it will tear. Just run the cutter to make the bends and folds smoother. However, cut the left and right sides for sealing the box from sides.

Step 5- Stick the printed paper on the box

It’s now time to stick the printed paper to the box and make it look more decorative. Thus take some adhesive, add some water in the bowl and make it thin. Apply the adhesive on all the sides of the box. Paste the printed paper on the box thoroughly. Stick all the sides properly to the box and also stick the top and sides of the box.

Step 6- Give the box a finishing touch
