Time to work on Christmas gifts again

Before the move I had started making crazy quilt jewelry boxes for my granddaughters for Christmas. I have ten started in different colors and themes. It was a long process just collecting the cereal boxes for this many but they are well on the way to being finished...if I just get started again.

I have purchased for each box a clam in water that has a real pearl grown in it. Each girl will get to pry open the clam and see what size and color her pearl is. It also comes with a necklace and a cage pendant to put the pearl in.

After embellishing you have to cut it out and glue it to cardboard, both the top and the liner. I love my plastic clothes pins for holding them in place until the glue dries.

Of course this will get a top embellished with roses and a tassle to open it. Inside the lid is a feature fabric. Don't have that part glued to the cardboard yet..but now that I have them unpacked I am in the mood to begin again.
