Velvet-Lined Jewelry Box

Velvet Lined Drawer Dividers
I recently had a friend mention that she was really struggling with how to organize her jewelry – earrings mostly. She had tried several methods – but all had failed for her. She said that what she really wanted was a drawer she could pull out and they would all just be there. She didn’t already have a drawer to use for this purpose so…of course…I was like….CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

This is the solution I came up with. I hope others will find it useful or inspirational.

While perusing Hobby Lobby….as one like me does on a frequent basis…..I came across this nifty little thing designed to be used for scrapbook paper storage.

I did not see it as that. Instead, all I saw was a great jewelry box! It was HUGE, which is great, as I knew my friend had quite a jewelry collection. On top of that, with my 40% off coupon it was only like $20. Score!

Never mind that the drawers are empty. Pshhh, I can fix that! So off I went.

Other supplies used included:

  • Foam Board
  • Cardboard (I used the box it came in for most of it!)
  • Velvet Fabric (I ended up using almost exactly a whole yard)
  • Exacto Knife and Cutting Mat
  • Scissors
  • Elmer’s Glue-All
  • Glue Gun
  • Ruler/Measuring Tape
  • Pencil or Pen

See the video tutorial below for a complete walk through of how I completed this part of the project.

Yes, I decorated the exterior!  Of course! That is coming soon!
