Creative Jewelry Packaging Series - Small Wood Boxes

When you take a lot of time and care to create a very special, hand crafted piece of jewelry it is important to think about how that little creation will be packaged for the recipient.
At most national art and craft stores, in their unfinished wood sections, you can find small, unfinished wood boxes in a wide assortment of shapes and sizes…most prices around $1 or less.
There are so many things that can be done to incorporate these inexpensive boxes into your presentation...
• hand paint them in a color or theme to coordinate with your piece of jewelry
• decoupage them with decorative papers or tissue
• stain them with a wood stain or simply clear varnish
• spray paint them and add your signature or write a personal note or poem
• glue fabric or trims on them
The list goes on and on…
Just think what a special experience the recipient would have receiving one of your creations, wrapped in colorful tissue paper, carefully tucked inside a beautifully decorated box .
It is a complete presentation!
