Have you ever heard "Mum I can't find my earings" or "where's my bracelet" or "I've lost my favourite necklace, you know the one with the heart"? This was happening all too often at our place so it got me to thinking!
Hello and happy Friday from Down Under! It's Melinda here and today I am going to share with you a fun and simple method of using a chipboard mini-album and turning it into a sweet gift that any young girl with lots of jewellery would love to own!
I have had a Kaisercraft Fairy Castle mini album in my stash for a few months now and as soon as I saw the Enchanted collection I knew they would compliment each other and be perfect for my daughters new Jewellery holder.
Decorate each page with a few simple embellishments so that you don't cover areas where the jewellery will be placed. Each of my pages has a little garden scene where I've positioned a name tag to correspond with the jewellery.Imaginsice i-rock to add a few rows of hot rocks giving the castle that touch of sparkle that every girl loves!
Using a pencil mark out where you would like to have the holes for the earings and the hooks for hanging objects. Place your chipboard onto a raised surface so that you don't drill into your cutting mat and drill right through to the other side for the earing holes and drill half way for the hanging hooks, once you are finished you may need to lightly sand any rough edges before screwing in your hooks.
Add rings and ribbons to bind your pages together and then it is time to hand over your project and let that special someone hang her jewellery so that she never has to worry about missing pieces again! This is an ideal gift for a young girl who is just that little bit older and not really into the fairies and princesses but still likes all things pretty and has a growing jewellery collection that needs somewhere to live!
(Now from Lori...) Isn't Melinda wonderful...and what a fun idea. As you know here at Imaginisce we love jewelry too and recently released the new i-top rings and snap daddies. So we thought in honor of this awesome tutorial that we'd giveaway an i-top tool, the rings and snap daddies in medium and large to a lucky winner...that way you'll have some cute jewelry to hang on your castle!!
