Stained Glass Ring Boxes

I’ve been making more of my tiny boxes. These little ring boxes are perfect for bridesmaids, friends birthday, hostess gift, co-worker leaving gift or member of the family. Use as a ring box near your bathroom or kitchen sink. Here’s a few of my newest ones below: you can find them on Etsy, too.

It’s Wedding Season

We’re getting to that time of year when it seems we’re all going to a wedding or some kind of life event.  I’m starting to get more invitations in, one person sent me four to do!

I also just uploaded a post of my invitation boxes to Bored Panda. It’s a great way to see quite a few of my boxes all at once.

Clean Contemporary Wedding Gift

Sometimes plain and simple is the best.

I’ve made quite a few of these smaller boxes in the past couple of months. Mostly they’re in a clear textured glass with little or no embellishment.  They are made with the invitation on the top and either a party invite /photo or textured acid-free paper on the inside of the lid. There’s no additional border; the edges of the box are in line with the edge of the invitation. If this is what you’re looking for, you can find them here.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Hope everyone has a Happy Valentine’s Day. I recently started selling at Frill  – Gifts, Home Decor & More in East Hampton. She sold this cute little red heart yesterday for me. I also have my tiny boxes (3″x2″) for sale at her store, along with my angels. She’s asked me to make these hearts available year-round as well.red heart in stained glass

Ring Boxes for Valentine’s Day

small jewelry or ring box

Small ring boxes are a perfect gift for someone special. Their small size makes them great to place on your desk, nightstand or bathroom vanity. I use mine to hold rings and earrings at the end of the day, so I don’t have to put my jewelry away right away but at least I know where they are!

I’m adding these little jewelry boxes to my Etsy listings of custom designs and ones that are ready to ship. The pink one above can be found here.

Tiny Glass Boxes make Great Bridesmaid Gifts

bridesmaid giftOne of my most popular items are my Tiny Boxes, which sell great at Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and all year long for Weddings. Brides love to give them out as bridesmaid gifts – being a useful item, colorful, long lasting and truly unique. Each one is hand crafted and can be made to fit the personality of the recipient or done in the colors to suit the wedding theme. They’re even great for that hard-to-please new Mother-in-law 🙂
