Why DIY trinket boxes? After all, it's just as easy to buy one, isn't it? Of course, but that's hardly the point of crafting, is it? With a DIY trinket box you can make something out of nothing, characterize it to your personality or desired style, make it in a size you can't find in the stores and because it's crafting, you can have fun and a sense of achievement. Your next craft project might be among these DIY trinket boxes.
