Center open earring boxes
The box opens through the center to reveal earrings or a small trinket as shown. The template is pretty simple.
The box is made with a sheet a smidgen less than 4x4 to make a 2x2x1 box. Fold up the sides and tape it to make the bottom of the box. The right side piece makes the base and the sides/top. The base of the box is taped to the middle square and the top and the bottom part is folded up to make the side/lid.I put tape on the 2 blue striped squares as shown and fold up the sides to makes the sides of the box. I then took a 2" circle punch and put tape only on one side of the lid and attach to the one side of the top.
Inside is made by taking a piece of a cardstock a smidgen less than 2" x 2 1/2 or so, score at the 2" and put the 1/16 inch holesalong the fold line if you are giving away earrings.
This was a pair I made using some wire wrapping techniques and some beads and pearls I had.
This is a very simple pair I made using the new Botanical Garden Jewels that is in the new spring Occasion Catalog. It was super simple to make. Just a sterling silver earring back, a clear crystal and a sterling pin connecting it all.
The top of the box is made using the festive flower builder punch with a set each punched with whisper white and vellum -put together with vellum on top of the white pieces, just offset a tad. Curl the edges a bit using a small dowel. I put a little iced rhinestone in the center to add a little touch of sparkle. Enjoy!
