Ring Box

Over the past couple of years I've developed a love of rings. I was throwing them in the same box as my earrings, but I was worried they'd get scratched so I decided to make a ring box for them. (Yes, I know you can buy these from the store, but where's the fun in that?)

To start I found an old box, this one happens to be the one that my ipod came in. (Sorry I don't have a picture of this empty.) I had some thick foam in my sewing area that I cut into one inch strips for my spacers. (You could easily use styrofoam or anything else laying around your house.) I placed all of my spacers in my box to make sure they fit.

I took some scrap fabric and covered the foam. This probably would have been easier if I'd glued it in place but since I didn't have any glue on hand I used pins to hold everything together.

Since my box was clear I covered the bottom with a piece of fabric. If I'd had mod podge on hand I would have used that, but since I didn't I just set it in there. (If you haven't figured it out my craft space is lacking some of the basics. I do a lot more sewing and other fiber crafts that don't require glue.)

To finish I placed the wrapped pieces in a box and added the rings. I didn't need a large box, but this would be easy to do in a larger box to display rings at a craft fair or farmer's market and would look a lot prettier than the plain styrofoam or black velvet trays I usually see.

I'm sure someone else has done something similar to this before, but I didn't look at any other projects when I made this so I can't link to my inspiration.
