How to Build Industrial Shelves - Beneath My Heart. How to Make A Jewelry Box from a Cigar Box. I have always been a very messy person, and my jewelry situation is no exception. Typically it’s scattered across the top of our dresser and on my nightstand, not to mention the bathroom, my car, in the crevices of my purse….etc. As I was staring at the jungle of our dresser the other day, I decided I needed to check my egregious clutter habit and tame my jewelry once and for all! As it so happened, an old cigar box my dad gave me was conveniently positioned amongst the various odds and ends.

Problem + solution all in the space of five minutes! And so, I give you: the DIY jewelry box — from a cigar box! Now this is one of those instances where you must do as I say, not as I do.

I love minimalism, as I truly believe less is more. I have always loved geometry.

I love figuring out how things are built. Lately I have been drawn into building shapes, going from something flat to something three dimensional and functional with the least steps involved. The teddy bear key chain is one example. So, when I came across this fabulous basket and DIY on Pinterest, I couldn't get to my craft's table fast enough. In no time, I made a bunch of leather mini baskets based on the same principle, but instead of using a hexagon I made use of squares.

This is an easy and fast craft, which requires minimal supplies: a (small) piece of leather, a hole punch, rivets and rivet setter, a cutting tool, and a ruler and pencil. Now if you don't have access to leather, try using heavy weight felt as in the original tutorial, or use foam sheets.
