custom box

my friend asked me about purchasing one of my products for a wedding gift. so after some brainstorming, we decided on a jewelry box. she said fall colors were a part of their wedding and i had the perfect paper for it! i designed, measured (and measured again just in case), cut board, and went to work. instead of just a plain box, i decided to liven it up with a partition down the main compartment and a removable tray for small items, like earrings. the final project size was about 5.25" x 7.5" x 2.25".

here's a side note: my mom gave me a jewelry box years ago that was covered with paper and had a removable tray. this was long before i learned about book & box making. i thought it was the coolest thing - a jewelry box not made of wood or plastic! it was different than anything i'd ever seen and i loved it.

i got so engrossed in the project that i started & finished it last night! here are some pics of the final result:
