It’s all in the presentationNovember 2, 2008 at 2:49 pm | Posted in Other Crafts | Leave a comment
So, after making some nice earrings, where do you put them? They definitely don’t come with a nice jewellery box from the store! 😉 One possibility is to make a box for them to live in, also very nice if you want to give a pair away as a present. Origami to the rescue. There are literally dozens of different patterns for origami boxes out there, but I wanted one with an integrated lid, so I ended up with this one.
To make sure the earrings wouldn’t rattle around in the box, I cut a piece of felt the size of the bottom of the box, stitched a couple of buttonhole bars on it, and attached the earrings:
The felt fits snugly on the bottom of the box:
And this is what the closed box looks like:
It’s not perfect, since this is the first time I made that pattern, and I haven’t been making any origami for a while, but you certainly get the idea. Using really nice paper would make that a really classy box for a nice present, all handmade. 🙂
