Jewelry Box

This box marks the first I time I took a class from Mita Saldana of Against the Grain – Center for Bookbinding Arts. This project started as a pile of paper and book board. Book board is essentially really thick, rigid cardboard. I very much appreciated learning all the steps in the process of making a box. For example, I didn’t know that the book board needed to be filed smooth to ensure that the pieces fit together cleanly and securely. Good thing I didn’t try this project on my own! The finished box includes 3 interior boxes and stands 5 inches tall. The interior shelves are 3 x 3 inches square and are fully covered. The top of the box is lightly padded.

Mita is a friendly and engaging artist. She can be reached through her web site at
