Heartfelt Love Trinket Box

This Valentine's Day, turn an ordinary pine box into a beautiful keepsake trinket box. Fill the box with a special gift, such as a few Hershey Kisses, or hide the engagement ring inside this box and pop the big question on Valentine's Day. Either way, this box is sure to make your loved one feel spoiled.

  6. Give the bottom part of the box an uneven wash with the mother of pearl rose pink paint and allow to dry thoroughly. Do not paint the inside of the bottom part, as this will be covered with felt. Also give the remaining areas of the lid an uneven wash with the mother of pearl rose pink paint.
  7. Now add an uneven wash with the white paint to all the areas painted in the previous step and allow to dry thoroughly.
  8. Cover the inside of the box with felt. Make sure that the felt is glued thoroughly into all the edges and corners.
