Little Jewelery Box

My daughter has quite the collection of dress-up jewelery.  It probably didn't help when my son broke a necklace and he replaced it with a four necklace, four bracelet, four ring set-all for $1!  I'd been wanting M to have an appropriate jewelery box instead of her little plastic sandwich baggie.

I found a decent sized wooden box at Jo Anne's.  It's about 6x6 inches.  To spice it up (and cover the cheap wood), I painted it white.  Mod Podged a 5x5 piece of scrapbook paper on top, and stippled the sides for color.  Obviously, the scrapbook paper didn't cooperate with all of those wrinkles.  I embellished the flower paper with three-dimensional butterfly stickers that coordinated a bit.
(Photos taken on M's comforter that is purple, green, and a bit of blue.)
This was given to M for her fourth birthday.

I love it! What a great idea to make her a jewelry box. It looks so feminine and a precious place for her to put her jewelry treasures from her brother.

How cute! I'm debating on a jewelry box for Princess. My fear is she'll dump the jewelry out and use it for hauling around and storing random toys.

That is so cute. R has two jewelry boxes, but most of her jewelry is spread about around her room.
