Turn your jewels into a piece of art to decorate your room with
I've seen several jewellery organisers before, but most of them needed an antique wooden picture frame, which I don't have. The ones I've seen also were not very easy to attach and detach your jewels, since you had to get to the back of the frame every time. I thought lace ribbons would allow me to put ear studs onto it without having to put my arm on the other side to put the closings on. I think the result looks lovely, and I am eager to find out what kinds of variations you will come up with!

Sew on some buttons. Make sure that the distance between the two upper buttons is the same as the length of the ring ribbon.
If you have a staple gun, you can stretch up your fabric and shoot the edges on the back of the wood tile. Staple the loop in the middle of the upper edge. Cut out a square piece of fabric and glue it on the back of the tile, covering up the staples.
If you don't have a staple gun, like I did, cut out a square of fabric that is on all edges 1,5 cm wider than your tile. Put this piece on the good side (with laces and buttons) and sew three sides together (pay special attention to the corners, because this is a tricky part!) DO NOT FORGET TO PUT THE LOOP BETWEEN THE SEAM! Otherwise it will be very difficult to attach the loop later on. Turn the good side out and put this cover over the wood tile.
Picture from the back when three sides are sewn. Use your special forces to squeeze your hand between the fabric and the tile to put all of the filling in place, in case it moved a little bit. Use your special forces again to squeeze your hand AND a tube of wood glue between the wood and the fabric, while you put on juuuust al little bit of glue to secure the back piece.
