I've been wanting a display for my necklaces for awhile, and finally got around to making one. It's a piece of plywood, painted white on the sides, and a sheet of scrapbooking paper on the front. I wish I could have found better hooks, but I'll live, for now. :p I love the paper I used for the background (which, btw, is actually red, and the big flourish on the right is celadon, but it all got washed out, and now looks the dreaded pink), and have been hoarding it for a couple of years, while I figured out what to do with it. I think it worked out well, don't you? :D

(Oh, I figured I might as well take pictures while making it, so look for a tutorial on it in the future, when I get myself organized. :p )

Have jumped in and joined Today's Creative Blog's Get Your Craft On link should jump over and have a peek...there are 318 links before me...that's a lot of crafting to see!

It is really hard to know how to use some of those lovely papers but this is definitely a great way. Looks terrific. Cherrie

I love that background paper too!
A very cool idea - all my jewellery is just thrown in a drawer and is a huge mess.

It looks gorgeous! That paper is divine. I might have to try this, I have loads of jewellery boxes but it would be good to have easy access to the necklaces I wear most often. Looking forward to the tutorial!

Ha ha! The proof that I have been looking for... it always pays to hoard some things "Incase"

This is so cute! I love the paper you selected.

Thanks for commenting on my "subway" art. :)
