One big cereal box
- Paper towel roll
- Cardboard (You use shipping boxes)
- Another small or big cereal box or any box of that kind
- Empty painter's tape cardboard (If you don't have one you can use anything of that kind of make one with cardboard.)
- Stones/Marbles/beans for weight
- Contact paper
- Scissors & Craft knife
- Scrap book paper and Mod podge (Optional)
Cut the top part of the cereal box and cover the whole box with contact paper.
Take the paper towel roll and trace it in the bottom center of the cereal box and cut it out using craft knife.
Now cut a cardboard piece which is bigger than the empty painter's tape roll. Use E6000 and glue one end of roll to the cardboard piece.
Fill the paper roll with some weight. I used stones here. Cover the top with any desired scrap book paper of your choice. Also cover the entire paper roll and cardboard piece using scrapbook paper and Mod Podge. I used silver washi tape and covered the paper roll. But it is your choice to cover/mask them with whatever you have in hand. You can also use paint.It is totally up to you. I also covered the painter's tape roll in scrapbook paper. If you don't have any empty cardboard roll like the one used here, you can cut a long piece of cardboard and glue it or you can also use bigger diameter pvc pipe for this purpose.
Now glue the painter's tape roll on to the cardboard base.Allow it to dry. Take the cereal box and inserted it into the paper roll . You now have a rotating box around the paper roll.
As this display is going to be in a public setting, I wanted to close the top part of the jewelry display so that it is safe and can also be used as storage for extra jewelry items. For this, use any extra cereal box or any box of that kind and make a top lid measuring the length and width. Cover it with contact paper and glue it to the box. Use binder clip to secure the lid to the box till the glue dries.
