Wishing Erin lived closer so I could give her a mah-jor hug for this one! Check out her easy and creative DIY  jewelry storage solution… that would also make an amazing, heartfelt gift! It makes me want to make this, this or this even more to start filling this cutie up!

Hey TAGG readers! I’m back from over at Thanks, I Made It with a new DIY for you. When you’re an absolute jewelry fiend like me and my girl Alyson here, you tend to crave solutions to store your baubles just as much as your next statement necklace. With my ever-growing collection of rings and earrings (lots of DIY earrings over at Thanks, I Made It!), I need a clear way to organize and display them that is pretty and functional.

Tools and materials:
Velvet or other soft, cushiony fabric (I used a long piece 6 1/2 x 54 inches, folded in half)
Foam core
Small box (this one from a baublebar purchase!)
Craft knife and/or scissors
Decorative paper
Hot glue and glue gun

Check out how easily this box transforms in the pictures and tutorial after the jump…{you know you’re curious!}

Cut away the lid to the box, if necessary, and wrap in the paper, leaving the top open. Secure with glue or tape.

With your craft knife and ruler, begin by cutting about 10 pieces of foam core into rectangles that fit the width and depth of your box. You may need more or less depending on the size of your box. For mine, I used 11 rectangles 2 1/4 inches by 6 1/2 inches.

Taking your long strip of velvet, glue one end onto the inside of the box. Apply glue to one of the foam core rectangles and  press against the velvet. Fold the the fabric about halfway down the foam core, and glue in place. Continue folding, gluing, and adding additional rectangles of foam core.

Once the box is filled, trim and tuck the end of the fabric and secure with glue.

Have fun storing your jewels!
