How to Make a Trinket Box out of Popsicle Sticks

I have a fun and easy craft for you today.  I’m going to show you how to make a Trinket Box out of Popsicle Sticks.  A trinket box is great for holding little things like rings, earrings, candy, coins…. those type of little things.  These type of things are called trinkets and a trinket box is kept to store these small things as to not lose them.  This trinket box makes for a great gift for someone special or keep it for yourself.  The choice is yours.  Now let’s get started.

Step 4

Cut out a piece of paper in the size of the square and glue it to the bottom most square.

And, there you have it…. easy peasy lemon squeazy.  How did your Trinket Box turn out?  Now, the real question is this….. are you going to keep it for yourself or give it to someone else as a gift?   Hmmmmm…..
