How to Make

  1. Paint the outside of the wooden box with purple acrylic paint or a colour of your choice and leave to dry. Then paint another coat of paint of top to make the colour bolder. Leave to dry.
  2. Paint the inside of the box with blue acrylic paint and leave to dry.
  3. Choose a ribbon and then measure and cut where the length will fit round all four sides of the box. Then spread some PVA glue on the back of the ribbon and then place it around the box, holding it firmly till it slightly dries.
  4. Cut out four pieces of pink foam that measure 4.5cm x 11cm. Roll each piece of foam up into a tube and slot them into the box to make dividers that you can place earrings between.
