Lidded Jewellery Box Tools and Supplies The most popular use for these boxes is for keeping jewellery.However, they can be used for many different purposes, from holding paper clips, to pills in a lady's purse.
They make excellent gifts and usually become a treasured possession of the recipient.An assortment of shapes, sizes and different woods can also make a beautiful addition to a display for a local craft show.
Lidded boxes come in many different styles and configurations.The lid style is often dictated by the end use.For example, the lid can pop off, lift off, or slide off, and it can either fit over the lip of the box base, or it can fit inside.
Some even have hinged or threaded tops.You can make a simple little box with straight sides with a flat, curved, or dished top, or you can let your creative juices flow and make your design as intricate as you like.
