Default Old Letters Trinket Box

Hey Y'all wanted to share the trinket box I made today. I used my Envelope Punch board to make the envelopes, crumpled and inked them to look old.. stuffed them each with a piece of cardboard (from a box my PW order came in) then cut a hole in each envelope and stacked and glued them together and covered the insert with paper from my Timeless Elegance papers.. I used dazzles for the frames and borders.... I plan to give this to my niece for her birthday.. with some candy in the insert.
I wrote the little poem on the top lid:
Here's a little trinket box
made with old letters from me
to hold those little treasures
and things you have received.
It's tied up with a pretty ribbon
and given from the heart
to show how much I care
and my love to you impart.
Thanks for looking..
God bless
Nyoka

Thanks Penny! Sure thing. Here is a link to a video. It's sorta crude but you get the jist of how to do the box. It has three parts but look on the right hand side of the video and the other two parts are there... good luck!

Those gifts from the heart are absolutely the BEST! Nyoka, that is just gorgeous and thanks for the link to the how-to video. Your niece will be thrilled to receive this very special gift from her Auntie.
