Geode Trinket Box
It’s almost Valentines Day and I know you’re looking for something to put a gift in. I found this geode trinket box for over $50 at a department store. Today we’re going to put a DIY spin to it and make this Geode Trinket Box for less than $10. Are you ready? Gather your favorite Americana Chalky Finish colors and Decou-Page to create this fun project!

1. Paint your paper mache boxes with your Chalky Finish colors. Be sure that this color works well with your Decou-Page papers. We’re sharing two different trinket boxes ideas today. I used Americana Chalky Finish Lace and Americana Chalky Finish Heirloom.

2. Take your Decou-Page Papers and cut out a outline of the lid. You will want to make sure you leave enough to go around the edges. I used Vintage Silhouette and Olde Worlde Decou-Page paper packs.

3. Now follow the instructions on your Decou-Page to apply your paper to your paper mache box lid. The Decou-Page papers are made for this. Be sure to apply a nice even coat.

4. Now glue your geode to your trinket box using your E6000 glue. Be sure to use this glue in a well ventilated area.

This will be the perfect little box to give as a gift to someone special in your life or you can make it for yourself. Use colors that match your room to make it fit with the decor. I think this will look great on a desk, nightstand, or shelf. The possibilities are endless. Leave me a comment and tell me which one you’d like to make!
