Little Treasure Box

What you need

Cigar box
Felt for lining
Metallic print wrapping paper
Jewels any color
Scissors
White glue and jewel glue/glue gun
Paint brush.




Instructions

Cut wrapping paper to cover the out side of the box and to go just inside the lid and inner box 1/4 inch.

Use brush or fingers and cover top of box with white glue. Place the wrapping paper over the box carefully so as to not have bubbles. Press gently but firmly to secure paper.

Open the box so you see the inside of the top of the box as there is paper now hanging from the top, brush glue around inside top edge of the box and fold paper to the inside. Press down.

Do the same to the bottom half of the box.

Now you can cut the felt to the size of the inside of the box. Do the bottom and top first. Glue in place with the white glue.

Measure out the inside sides and glue in place. It can’t go past the lid or bottom box it must be even or lid won’t close. Don’t close box till dry.

Than glue on jewels and pearls to decorate the top.
