Kaboodle Doodle at the Fifth

This week it is challenge number five at Kaboodle Doodle โ€“ can you believe it? There are some scrummy free papers to download and use in your creation for this week’s challenge and here is what I did with them. A friend of mine wants a jewellery box for her birthday and I’ve been shopping around but they aren’t very nice so I thought I might have a go at making one โ€“ hope she likes it ๐Ÿ™‚


Materials:
Papers – Kaboodle Doodle
Other – recycled cardboard; PVA glue; acrylic varnish; wire; beads

    Thanks folks. I made this from a cardboard box I had saved after moving house and it took me ages ๐Ÿ˜‰ Think that is why I did not do much blogging this week – too busy making this!
    I hope to make another one so I will try and take photos as I go along for a tutorial. Kimx

    Hi Kim,

    I’m a new visitor to your blog and so glad I found it! Your work is amazing and I just love this altered jewelry box – it’s just beautiful! Any chance of getting the directions for it? I’d love to try one.

    Have a great weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚
