A small box decorated with sea shells tutorial

We are having 3 very rainy days here which are very welcome.  Our dry country needs  many days like these.  Staying inside was very productive for me.  I experimented with my sea shells and will show you with photos how to make decorated jewelry or sewing boxes.



I bought the little wooden discs with the intention of making baskets from Casey's tutorials but they
also work for making boxes.  You can make them any form you wish, oval, square, etc. You just cut
a strip of card stock the width and length you want, form a ring to fit the disc and glue it to the disc. After the it's dry, you glue on the shells.  I  cut pieces of felt and glued them to the inside of the box.
I rather like the results but will make more experiments. I'd love to hear from you if you have other ideas for the little shells.

A very warm welcome to my new followers

  23. Hi Drora! I'm so glad I could see your shell boxes and tutorial--they are really lovely! I would enjoy a tray, plate, or small basket filled with seashells. We have a basket of seashells on our kitchen table. The seashells are ones that we gathered on our trips together to the beach. Sorry I cannot think of other uses for them. :-( Thanks again for a lovely post--I always enjoy seeing your projects! :-)

  24. Back home we decorated picture frames with tiy shells. Then in the US I saw tiny baskets decorated with shells but they looked like they were mass produced. Hey to each his own. I love your blog.
