Valentine's Jewellery Box

DIY Decoupage Decals

The Design Team theme over at Cuddly Buddly this month is Valentine's and I whipped up this little box for our darling goddaughter.  I used the same tissue paper and inkjet printer method as for these Halloween candles;


This technique allows you to take any picture and turn it into an image thin enough to decoupage onto your chosen surface.   It also means that you can create personalised items.  As our goddaughter is Japanese, finding a shop bought jewellery box (American - jewelry) with the name 'Ayana' on it might have been a long-shot!




You can find the full tutorial on the Cuddly Buddly Blog and the William Morris inspired clip-art can be purchased here.

Happy Valentine's Day!



  1. This is beautiful, your goddaughter has a keep sake forever. a treasure!

  2. A beautiful keepsake and children love things with their name on it! Xx
