    How To Make A Jewellery Box?

    The size of the box can be adjusted depending on your needs or the size of a picture frame that you might have around your house already. 

    Step 1: Cut the pieces of wood that make up the box. In this case, we are going to use 1/2" x 3-1/2" x 12" (12mm x 89mm x 305mm) for the bottom and 1/2" x 3-1/2" x 9" (12mm x 89mm x 229mm) for the sides and 1/2" x 3-1/2" x 6" (12mm x 89mm x 152mm) for the top.

    Step 2: Firstly, draw your design on the box. This can be any shape or picture that you like. You can choose to make a small heart-shaped jewellery box for Valentine's Day. If you are making this for yourself, you can draw whatever design or picture that you like.

    Step 3: Once you've finished drawing your design on the wood, take a sharp blade and carefully cut out the shapes. You can use any type of cutting tool such as an electric saw or even a knife if you have one around. The important thing is to make sure that all the edges are smooth so they won't hurt anyone when they open up the box.

    Step 4: Now that the box is perfectly cut up and shaped to your desired design. It's time to decorate your box however you like it. You can paint it or add stickers. You can also decorate it with glitter and shiny sequences of different kinds.
