Embellished Jewelry Boxes

Here is a super quick and easy DIY tutorial on embellishing a simple gift box with velvet ribbon and treasures found from nature.  (Or maybe treasures from your local craft store, visit their floral department for natural elements.)

I could see using some moss and a faux birds nest - Hobby Lobby has cute tiny ones.
Or try a collection of shells with a pink or teal velvet ribbon for those mermaids on your gift list.


  1. I love that idea. I have many, many gift boxes from my online store and they are plain, plain. plain.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. sounds like a fun project! you could do hundreds of different themes. I love those larger kraft paper trinket boxes at the hobby store too, they look like papier mache made from brown bags, it would be so fun to decorate those too. i never thought of using just a regular gift box though--i'm envisioning a tiny ice skating scene with itty bitty trees and a mirrored pond atop an earring box....

  3. Adorable! And who wanted appreciate getting a tiny box all adorned with fun?!?

  4. What a yummy Idea!! I love nature, this would be perfect for me :)

  5. Omg...I would love to receive this....I would keep it forever! What a special gift idea!
