resin trinket box

These trinket boxes are a gift inside and out! Just tie a piece of ribbon around the box and you have two gifts in one.
Step 1

First, mix equal parts resin and resin hardener in a plastic cup. Stir slowly until completely mixed. Divide resin mixture into three plastic cups.

Step 2

Leave one portion clear. Add white opaque dye to the second portion and Gold opaque dye to the third.

Step 3

Pour the white resin into square trinket dish base mold. Apply heat with a heat tool to help any bubbles raise to the surface. Set aside.

Step 4

Pour a small amount of clear resin in a diagonal line across the square trinket dish lid mold. Add pearl beads to the lid mold, immersing in the clear resin. Add Gold foil flakes along each side of the pearls.

Step 5

Now, pour Gold resin on either side and around the edges of the lid mold. Add more clear resin over the pearls and foil as needed. Apply heat with a heat tool to help any bubbles raise to the surface. Set aside.

Step 6

Allow all resin to cure in the molds for 12-24 hours until set. Remove box and lid from molds.

Step 7

Fill each trinket box with a small amount of white paper shred. Add gift. Place lids on boxes.

Step 8

Tie red ribbon around gold box and gold ribbon around red box. Add a small sprig from the floral pick under the ribbon on each box. Add a gift tag if desired.
TIP: For the Red and Gold Box:

  • Repeat Step 1 but separate in two cups.
  • Add white opaque dye and white iridescent foil flakes into one portion and red transparent dye and red foil flakes into the other.
  • Repeat Steps 3 and 6-8.
