Jewelry Organizer Tutorial??

Ummm..yeah.
I made this little lovely today!
and....I used the Quick and Easy method!
.............................................

1- You need a frame, some cardboard, Duct Tape, fabric, and those little screw in hooks.
.............................................

2- Avoiding your 11 year old son's head, tape fabric tightly over your cardboard (I glued two layers of cardboard together for strength)
.......................................

3-When you decide you don't like the way the first layer looks, tape another layer over the top of it.
..........................................

4- Find a piece of ric-rack, or whatever trim you have tucked into the corner of your craft drawer, and stretch it tightly across one end of your creation. Tape it on the back.
.....................................

5- Get those cute little screw ended hook thingies. I happened to find them in my husbands tool section of the garage.
Screw them into your board, randomly, until they are tight.
......................................

6-Cram it into the frame because you forgot to cut the cardboard a little smaller than you needed to accommodate for the 2 layers of fabric.
..................................

Hang her up on the wall, and fill with all of your jewelry. Most of which you didn't even know you had because it has been tangled in the giant heap of lost necklaces and oddities!
This probably won't last forever! But, it is adorable....and it works1
Score another one for Quick and Easy!

Lola, you are so cute and funny! Thanks for the idea...however I think it may be too late for most of my jewelry, as the kids have been playing alot of pirates lately. Summer is almost over...YEAH! Time to go shopping for me!!!!

Ooh fun! I need someplace cute to hang my necklaces. I have a compartment in my jewelry box, but Marshy likes to pull them all out and stick his toys in there.

What kind of frame? Like a picture frame but without the glass??
