How many times have you been away from home and needed a place to store your jewelry? I used to sit it on the counter and then worried it would get knocked off and lost. There are some things you can't replace like your wedding ring or earrings that a love one gave you who has passed away. I almost lost these valuable piece on a trip to Orlando. Thinking I was smart I put them on the floor next to my suitcase that was on the floor of the closer. When I got home and realized I forgot them I called the resort and they found them. Boy, was I lucky!
So I decided I needed something small to keep my every day jewelry in. You know your wedding ring you always wear. Well, here are step by step instructions on how to make the sweetest monogrammed jewelry box that fits right into the make up bag.
First, find a small makeup box. I choose my neutrogena powder foundation container. It's perfect because it has an upper and lower compartment.
Second, clean off all labels. I used goo gone to remove label residue. Unfortunately, the neutrogena label is permanent but I have an idea to hide it.
Third, wash it with soap and warm water. Then place it on the top rack of your dishwasher and give it a wash that will make it sparkle.
Fourth, make a monogram with your silhouette machine, circuit or go purchase some stickers from the craft store and place your initials on top.
Now your done unless you have to cover the bottom like me. I decided to place a round piece of vinyl there or decorative design.
My new jewelry box works out great. I have a place for my necklace, earrings and rings. I can screw on the lid and place it in my makeup case. Now if I forget to put my jewelry on I don't have to worry about leaving it. It is in my makeup bag which is big enough not to leave behind.
