Birthday earrings and Felt box

This is a double DIY post. One handmade terracotta earrings and two - DIY Stiff felt box.

Oct 5 was the birthday of a cousin sister. I thought what better gift than handmade earrings.
So made these specially for her. I wanted it to be something which she should be comfortable wearing even to work.

While I was waiting for the first coat of paint to dry - I made this lovely gift box, it is that quick and simple.
Sometime in the past 2 weeks I remember pinning this very simple tutorial of how to make a box out of stiff felt. Picked up one stiff sheet at Michael's - just to try it out.
Here is a link to the original tutorial. This is how it ended up - I improvised the lid a little bit by adding a washi tape trim and sticking a kundan piece on each face

One more look at the box...

And the earrings...

Happy Birthday dear sister! :)
