Hi all, as mentioned in my previous post am presenting the tutorial of making necklace and earring display using cardboard. I always wanted to display my handmade jewellery using a necklace stand similar to that of the jewellery shops. I feel the stand enhances the look of the set . So when I googled upon to shop for such a stand I found a tutorial on DIY necklace display. I modified it a little bit and made my own version. It came out very well that I wanted to make a display for my earrings too. Here is a step by step tutorial on making jewellery display by recycling waste cardboard.
- Cardboard ( Cereal box , packaging materials can be used)
- Pen knife or bone folder for making crease
- Inch tape or scale
- White paper
- Cello tape and glue
STEP BY STEP:
Mark the centre of the cardboard and draw a line. From the top mark 1 cm and 2 cm in the centre line. Mark 3cm to the left and right of 1cm point.
Draw an ellipse like this.
Tape the flaps at the back like this.
Cover it with a white sheet or black sheet. White display will suit dark colour jewellery and black display is suitable for light colour jewellery.
Cut a piece of cardboard of size 14 cm by 8 cm.
Mark the centre point and draw a line. Mark 4 cm from the top and bottom.
Mark 2 cm to the left and right of the centre line drawn.
Cut a small piece of cardboard to the above dimensions for giving support to the earring stand.
Paste the supporting cardboard as shown above using hot glue ( glue gun).
I tried my level best to avoid any ambiguity while explaining the steps. Hope this tutorial is helpful to you all.
