DIY~Gorgeous "No-Shed" Glitter Trinket Boxes! Easy and Inexpensive!

You can make GORGEOUS no-shed glitter trinket boxes out of ANY size Kraft box. These are a little too small to use as gift card holders, however, you can purchase the larger size to make them work for you. I'm using these as jewelry holders, so this will work fine for what I need. I decorated the boxes with various acrylic rhinestone buttons that I found mainly from sellers on Ebay and Etsy, as well as flat back embellishments. In my video, I do make a couple of suggestions on how you can make your OWN "faux" versions of acrylic rhinestone buttons. Be sure to click on the following link to see my YouTube tutorial on how to make these little beauties!
