Bangle box

It was one of those days, I was done with all my chores, and with an excuse of getting some activity and not just sitting around, I set out to the mall, on my way back I was just stopping at my favorite stores with nothing specific in mind. I stopped by the store "Tuesday mornings" and was just browsing, I came across these wine boxes. They were so colorful, some even had sparkle, very attractive. I stood by this aisle for a long time thinking what I can do with it because I really wanted to have it but I don't drink.

The idea of using it as bangle box came to my mind. I bought these two boxes. I then went to a craft store, where I bought these wood dowels and a few wood decals that can fit into the box. I just screwed in the wood decal to the wood dowel. I then made a paper tube to fit the size of my bangles using thick cardboard paper and covered it with some gift wrap. The tube just slides on the dowel.

There you have it, a colorful looking practical bangle box.


  1. Wow! wonderful idea. I might try your idea. Let see how it works out for me. But I don't think mine would be as good as yours. Thanks for the idea again.


  2. Thanks Ramya. Let me know how it turns out. I also found some plain wine boxes, just like this one at craft stores like hobby lobby. If you want to be more creative, you can decorate these yourself.

  3. Great idea, i m going to do one for me n my little one if i can get hold of those wine boxes.
