Let's Do This!
Remove the metal closure and hinges from the wooden box.
Stain the inside and outside of the wooden box. Let dry.
Print out two templates.
Cut out one template around the outside line.
Lay the cut template on top of the paper that you will be cutting. The color code is W: white book pages, P: pink paper, G: green paper, and B: blue paper.
Hold the template together with the color paper you are cutting. Cut out the shapes along the inside line of each template piece, following the color code.
Use the second uncut template to hold your cut paper pieces and keep them organized.
Cut out all the colored pattern pieces that you’ll need to complete the mosaic.
Carefully transfer the cut paper pieces to the top of the box, retaining their positions.
Deco Podge the cut paper pieces to the top of the box. Tips: Lift a piece of paper, apply Deco Podge to the box under the paper, and then lay the paper back onto the wet Deco Podge. Start in a corner and work your way across the box. Completely cover the lid with Deco Podge once all the pieces are tacked in place.
Cut paper strips for the side of the box lid. You will need one 7/8" x 8 ¼" piece and two 7/8" x 5 ¼" pieces.
Deco Podge the strips onto the front and sides of the lid using the method in Step 4B.
Put all of the metal closures and hinges back on the wooden box.
Cut six pieces of felt measuring 4 ¾" x 12".
Roll five of the felt pieces into tubes, setting aside the color you’d like to show inside the box. Hot glue the seams.
Place the five rolls into the box against one side, as shown. Hot glue them in place.
Tuck the sixth piece of felt in between each roll using a butter knife. Tip: Start in the middle and work out to both ends while tucking.
Cut a piece of corrugated cardboard that measures 4 5/8" x 4 7/8". Fold the cardboard 2 1/8" in from the side edge.
Cut a piece of felt that measures 4 5/8" x 7".
Hot glue the felt to the folded corrugated cardboard piece, as shown. Start at the fold, wrap the felt around to the front, and across the whole front of the cardboard piece.
Put the folded divider into the jewelry box, up against the rolled felt tubes. It will be a very snug fit.
Cut a piece of felt that measures 2 ¾" x 4 5/8".
Hot glue the felt into the lower area of the jewelry box, as shown.
