Have you ever wondered what to gift your special one? I wanted my gifts to be special. I want to gift my beautiful ladies out there. So what customized gift I can give? I quickly googled and all I can see is teddy bears and some heart shaped pillows. That is not going to keep my gift unique. I started searching for gift ideas for loved ones. I still get similar results. I decided to stop my search for some time and went on going through my social media updates.
BAM! I opened my Pinterest!!
Every time I look for jewelry boxes on Pinterest I feel like breaking my laptop’s screen and snatching them off. Since I cannot afford a new laptop right now and it is not a good etiquette to steal from others, I decided to create my own Quilling jewelry box. I saved few designs that I like and I have read few posts on How to create one on my own. Suddenly, I felt that I can gift the same to my lovely girls! Jewelry is one thing that attracts almost every girl and a cute little jewelry box can definitely is going to be a big deal.
So, I have decided on the colors and bought one Quilling kit from Amazon. No doubt that I went through a couple of YouTube channels on ‘How-to-Quill’. And yes, I learned how to use tools I have and want I want to create.
First I started preparing the base of the box. Not to mention that it takes 5 to 10 minutes to master your tools, no matter how many ‘How-to’ videos you watch. I started rolling paper using Slotted Quilling Pen (as it is beginner friendly) and used Quilling coach for support.
After every paper ends, I secured them with glue and glued another paper of different color. I went on rolling till I get a circular disk of 8 centimeters diameter. Now that the base of the box is ready and I need to start building the wall.
For building wall, I prepared tight coils of single paper each. I prepared almost 20 coils of each color in less than hour. After that, I glue these coils on the disk in alternate passion.
It turned out to be beautiful jewelry box !! I have no idea that it turns out such gorgeous in the first time! I quickly took some pics of it and shared it with my friends and trust me they are envy about it 😉
Next time if I want to gift anything to my lovely friends or my Mom I would definitely consider creating something like this one. Maybe in a different shape and size but yeah, Quilling box is a really good choice as it is made by you. What is your option of gifting something to your dear ones?
