Laser Engraved Jewelry Boxes


#1

I made these jewelry boxes for two of my granddaughters. The boxes were a purchase. I just engraved the lids, added velvet and mirrors on the inside and embellished the bottom half of the boxes.


#2

They look wonderful. It’s great to be able to personalize things like this, isn’t it? :slight_smile:


#3

It is. And while these didn’t cost a lot to make or take a lot of time to assemble, the girls loved them and will probably cherish them for years to come :slight_smile:


#4

Oh, I’ll bet they love them! :grinning:


#5

Such a wonderful gift. In this day and age where so much is massed produced, something personalized by grandmother will mean so much. <3

I think you understate the work you did. You didn’t ‘just do this’. You’ve created something new from a box as raw material . :+1:

Did you open the box up flat to engrave, take the lid off, or did it fit in closed, without the crumb tray ?

I am sure your granddaughters will love them. With the ribbon edge you could have glued an engraved piece on top of the box.


#8

Lovely font and design! Nice work decorating it overall, too!


#9

I took the lid off. :blush:


#10

I am going to try to engrave on a box for a shower for advice cards. How did you test your lid for settings before you did it?


#11

I didn’t test. Lol. I set it to full at 1000 speed which worked for me but it depends on the wood. Some burn easier than others. The boxes I did were pine.


#12

Perfect. So are mine! I am just going to give it a go! Eeekkkk. Thanks for the tip.


#13

How’d they turn out?


#14

They turned out super cute. Got a lot of compliments on it at the shower. Thanks for asking and for the help :slight_smile: I also cut the stars on the glowforge too.
