Steps To Make The Easy Jewelry Box

Right-click to download the label. Print on a laser printer.

Before you get started, download the Blingy Things label.  Then have it printed on a laser printer. This is important because Mod Podge is water based and will smear inkjet prints. We had our label printed at FedEx Kinkos on 60lb cover stock.

1. Paint The Box

Paint the inside and outside of the plain wooden box with the yellow craft paint. Let it dry, then apply a second coat. (Be sure to prop the lid open so the paint doesn’t seal it shut!)

2. Cut Out The Scrapbook Paper

To find a section of scrapbook paper you’d like on the top of your jewelry box, make a frame out of the white paper. To do this, trace the lid of the box on the white paper, then measure in about 1” all the way around. Cut out that frame. Move that frame around over your scrapbook paper like a window until you find an area you like. Draw inside the frame corners on the scrapbook paper with a pencil. Then use the ruler and pencil to draw straight guidelines. Cut out your square. (Our square was 4”x4”.)

3. Decoupage The Paper To The Box

Decoupage your square of scrapbook paper onto the center of the box lid using Mod Podge and a craft paintbrush. To do this, paint a medium-thick layer on the box and a medium-thick layer on the back of the scrapbook paper. (Don’t worry if the paper curls a little. It will flatten out in the next step.) Press the scrapbook paper square onto the center of the box. Rub it down with your fingers.

Use the brayer to press the paper down and smooth out any wrinkles. Brush off any excess Mod Podge that squeezed out the sides. Let it dry.

4. Decoupage The Blingy Things Label To The Box

Cut out the “Blingy Things” label. Decoupage the label onto the center of the box lid on top of the scrapbook paper square. To do this, paint a medium-thick layer on the box and a medium-thick layer on the back of the label. Press the label onto the center of the box. Rub it down with your fingers. Then use the brayer to press the label down and smooth it out. Brush off any Mod Podge that may have squeezed out of the sides. Let it dry.

5. Coat The Whole Box

When the label has completely dried, apply a coat of Mod Podge to the entire box to seal it and give it an even finish. For extra shine, apply another coat once that coat has dried.
