Something Borrowed Embellishments Jewellery & Sloping Jewellery Gift Box

Something Borrowd Tag Talk Sloping Jewellery Box by Amanda Bates at The Craft Spa  (5)

And, something different for a true paper-crafter like me.  Some quick jewellery and a  special jewellery box for them to go in!

The box is a remake of one I designed about 3 years ago. It was based on a gorgeous box I saw in a shop many years ago and it was one I remembered when I started to be able to work out how to make my own boxes.... Took a while to work it out & it is a “very precise” little box ... But I am so glad that I persevered.... Works well for a Ferrero Rocher and Lindor chocolates too.... ( as I made them that way one Christmas a while back!)

As soon as I saw the gorgeous Something Borrowed embellishments in the Spring Summer catalogue - I knew I had to repeat my very popular Frosted Finishes jewellery class from 18 months ago.

The necklace and the box were also a Team Gift swap at Convention 18 months ago in Manchester… so some of you will definitely recognise this project!! But for some reason… the project never got shared on my blog… think I must have had enough after making so many of them at the time!!!

So a necklace, earrings, a ring, a bracelet and a box for the necklace and earrings to go in... I just need to design a matching little ring box and bracelet box and then I have full set!

Sorry blurry jewellery…and a misplaced earring!! But you get the idea….

Though some of my ladies fit all the jewellery pieces except the bracelet into the one box… so maybe just a box for the bracelet to complete the set…

And the box decoration …. purposefully left as simple as simple can be… just some Something Borrowed papers, an image from Tag Talk and a Label Bracket punch, 1 3/8” circle & a 1 1/2” die cut circle to finish off
