Recycled Treasure Box

Here is a great project that you can use to recycle a container and a well used gift bag and turn them into a box to hold your special treasures.


Container with lid (we used one that contained calcium)

Glue Dots

Used gift bag

Miscellaneous jewels or trim

Hot Glue Gun



Clean out you container and let dry.

Cut gift bag into approximately 1" strips and adhere them to the box with the glue dots. We offset them to make a random pattern.

Glue jewels or trim to the top of the box and you have your treasure box.
