Upcycled Dollar Tree trinket boxes
These little trinket boxes at Dollar Tree are quite well made and have a magnetic closure. The designs on the tops . . . . um . . .well . . . really easy to alter!
The manufacturers stickers on the bottom are nearly impossible to remove. Much easier to just cover them with a mix or match paper. On these red boxes I opted for a piece of old dictionary page.
I glued a piece of red glitter paper (also from DT!) to the top. Then a turquoise glitter “JOY” ornament (with the hanger loop clipped off) glued on (I use tacky glue) and a little white foam snowflake sticker (Yep, got that at DT too!) in the center of the “O”.
I always put a little bit of ‘paper shred’ inside any gift boxes that I sell. It’s just a quirk of mine, I guess. People ALWAYS open up boxes and look inside and I guess I just like there to be a little something inside to surprise them! You can buy the bags of basket filler paper shred at DT also. I add ‘other stuff’ to the regular shred to make my own custom blend. Colored tissue paper, iridescent icicles, hand folded and cut vintage sheet music and just whatever else I can find!
I decided one little red jingle bell (from where else?!?) would look cute on the front flap.
I tucked them in with a few other red and turquoise items in my booth.
I have a lot of red and turquoise hand crafted felt ornaments in my booth this year too. It’s one of my favorite Christmas color combinations!
I’ve also altered other colors in non-holiday themes.
