Kaboodle Doodle at the Fifth

This week it is challenge number Five at Kaboodle Doodle - can you believe it? There are some scrummy free papers to download and use in your creation for this week's challenge and here is what I did with them. A friend of mine wants a jewellary box for her birthday and I've been shopping around but they aren't very nice so I thought I might have a go at making one - hope she likes it :)

Papers - Kaboodle Doodle
Other - recycled cardboard; PVA glue; Acrylic varnish; wire; beads


  1. Oh wow, this is a stunner. Would love to have the instructions for this gorgeous creation. Warm regards

  2. Fantastic Kim. You have made a wonderful job of this jewellery box.

    Take care and hugs,

  3. crikey kim this must have taken a while, its fab :) is it a recovering of a box or made from a template?

  4. A beautiful box. I am sure you're friend will adore it. Pascale :)

  5. Thanks folks. I made this from a cardboard box I had saved after moving house and it took me ages ;) Think that is why I did not do much blogging this week - too busy making this!
    I hope to make another one so I will try and take photos as I go along for a tutorial. Kimx

  6. This is stunning Kim. I keep meaning to do something like this so I look forward to your tutorial.

    I'm a new visitor to your blog and so glad I found it! Your work is amazing and I just love this altered jewelry box - it's just beautiful! Any chance of getting the directions for it? I'd love to try one.
