How Do You Make Jewelry Boxes Out Of Ostrich Eggs?
An ostrich egg jewelry box makes a beautiful and elegant place to store all of your finest jewelry. You will be especially proud to display a jewelry box you made yourself. It also makes the perfect gift, infused with your own personal touch. Making an ostrich egg jewelry box is a great craft project, and the end result is a beautiful keepsake. Follow these steps: Sketch an outline for the opening of your jewelry box and the hinge directly onto the egg. Use the rotary tool and diamond wheel to cut out the top of the egg for the opening of the jewelry box. Wear safety goggles and a dust mask while you cut. Sandpaper the edges if necessary after cutting off the top. Bend the hinge as necessary using the pliers so that it fits the curvature of the egg. Roughen the back of the hinge as well as the spot on the egg where you are going to attach it. This will make the glue more effective. Drill holes for the hinge screws using a drill bit on the rotary tool. Place the screws through the holes
