Materials
  • 12-inch square sheet of decorative paper )both sides will be visible, so avoid papers that have bar codes or logos)
  • Wide acrylic or standard ruler
  • Bone folder
  • Decorative elements (photos, glitter, stickers)

Jewelry Box for Semiprecious Candies

Steps:4
A pile of gemstones in luminous pinks, reds, and corals is a thrill to behold. These turn out to be good to eat as well. Use the same mold to make shiny hard candies (these are cinnamon flavored) and chocolates that can be wrapped in gleaming metallic foil. Tuck them into this handcrafted jewelry box for a special someone, or give them out to your dazzling friends.
Materials
  • Two 3 1/4-by-5 1/4 inch cardboard jewelry boxes with accompanying batting
  • Decorative faux-lizard paper
  • Craft knife
  • Bone folder
  • Ruler
  • Paste-style glue
  • Foam craft brush
  • Red art board (a heavier weight than card stock)
  • Satin fabric
  • Tape
  • Gold banding border and gold paper
  • Gem candies
