A Trinket Box for Gwyneth


My friend's little girl had a birthday yesterday so I made her a little trinket box. I got the idea from Kimberly Crawford's blog For the Love of Paper. Here's the link to her Fairy Box.

For my box I used the largest die from the Spellbinders Label 1 set and cut out two each of chipboard, white cardstock and patterned paper. I covered the chipboard with the white cardstock and patterned paper then created by box. Since the label was about 4 inches square I decided to go with a 3 inch box and make it 2 inches high. I attached the box to the bottom label and then made a 3 1/4 inch box that was only 1/2 inch high to attach to the top label for the lid.

The top was decorated with more labels, a G from the Olivia Cuttlebug set and a butterfly from the Martha Stewart punch.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you're all having a great day!
