If you like to make gifts, paper mache trinket boxes are a pretty easy to make gift idea. The boxes themselves are affordable. The ones I got were 6 for $3.99.
Because I’m in a Tuesday night bowling league, I decided to make gift boxes for the women bowlers. In my last post, I shared my ideas and supply information.
Yesterday, I worked on the boxes. It does take a good amount of time to decoupage the paper on, but after it dries, it goes pretty quickly.
What I love about making these is that it’s very easy to tailor them to the recipient. I chose bowling and stickers for initials, but other ideas could include boxes for:
- best friends
- baseball moms
- soccer moms
- book club members
- other sports
- people who love pets
- folks in a nursing home
I love jewelry art, so I add jewelry to my pieces, but really the possibilities for items to use are vast. I’m also thinking that some of these ideas would be fun:
- copies of photographs
- ticket stubs
- wristbands from an event
- small silk flowers
- flat backed Christmas ornaments
- fridge magnets from travels
Here are my finished jewelry art trinket boxes I made for the bowlers.
I made 12 boxes altogether and really like how the glitter letter stickers made them personalized. The extra boxes and letter stickers will be used to make trinket boxes for my booth.
Thanks for being here!
