The Princess’ Trinket Box


Posted on : | By : admin | In : Crafts

Let’s all welcome the fall and think of great craft ideas that matches up with the season. May children are excited when the season of fall comes in for it’s already the start of a cold weather and they all get to wear their boots and coats. And they can’t also wait to feel the snow falling on their rooftops. It’s just so great to have the feeling that you’re expecting something. Also, it’s during the fall season when gift giving is present since it’s just in time for Christmas. There are so many things to love with the season of fall.

Kids always love to collect things because they find every gift they receive as a treasure. And whenever Christmas is near, they get to receive gifts from parents and friends and they find a special box to place their tokens and trinkets. In this project, we will be focusing on creating a Trinket Box wherein your children could keep all the beautiful things that are given to them, especially girls. This project is just right for children ages 5 and above for it’s fun and easy to do. Not to mention, the trinket box creates a long-lasting container for all those fun treasures.

Here are the things that we will need for the Princess’ Trinket Box.

Shoe box with lid

White Craft Glue

Construction Paper (pastel colors)


The things needed are really simple and the level of difficulty is easy so there’s no need to worry that much for your children not to finish the said project. First, get a shoe box from your old pair of shoes. It could be dad’s old shoe box in order for it to be larger in dimension. Second, apply white craft glue on the parts you want to start with. Then, cut different shapes of different sizes too out of your pastel colored construction papers; the more creative you make the better. We choose the soft colors since we want to come up with a princess inspired trinket box. Just continue with the different sides of the shoe box and cover it with colored papers. Leave one side of the lid in order for you to place the title of your trinket box. Cut out letters from the magazines or simply print some text on a piece of white paper the name of your project, for example “My Trinket Box”. In addition, to make it more sweet and princess like, stick on pink and white sequins.
