DIY Pressed Flower Jewelry Box

Pressed flowers epoxy resin crafts are all the rage right now. They made great home decor and gifts. After my pressed flower epoxy resin coasters were such a hit I decided to create a pressed flower epoxy resin jewelry box. I am partnering again with Aleene's because I love their new low odor Clear Casting and Coating Epoxy Resin. Check out how easy it was to make! 

Pressed Flower Epoxy Jewelry Box



  1. Before getting started, completely read the instructions and safety precautions for the Aleene's Clear Casting and Coating Epoxy Resin. 
  2. Put on gloves, safety mask and glasses. Make sure to cover your work surface. Work on a flat area where your project can stay and cure for at least 24 hours. 
  3. The epoxy resin is a 1:1 mixing ratio but you MUST follow the instructions carefully when mixing to ensure you get the optional end product.  Once you start mixing you have a 25 minute work time. 
  4. Pour 1 part resin in one cup, 1 part hardener in a second cup, ensuring it is equal amounts of each. 
  5. Pour both the resin and hardener in one cup, scraping the edges of each cup with a craft stick. 
  6. Use a craft stick to mix for 3-5 minutes until all the streaks have disappeared. Once you do not see any more streaks, mix for 2 minutes. 
  7. Pour the mixture into a clean cup, scraping the edges of the cup. 
  8. Mix for an additional 1 minute. 
  9. Pour a small amount of the mix into the silicone top of the jewelry box mold.
  10. To avoid bubbles dip the pressed flowers into the epoxy resin and coat them before laying them in the mold. 
  11. Create your design and finish with a layer of epoxy resin. If the flowers move when you pour, use the tweezer to reposition them. 
  12. Next pour a small amount of epoxy resin in one corner of the jewelry box mold and let it flow around the bottom of the mold. 
  13. Dip flowers in resin before adding them to the mold. I left the wood form that came with the mold off so that I could see where I was placing the flowers. Use your tweezers to move the flowers around. 
  14. Fill the mold a little bit at a time as you add flowers. Don't forget to add them to the top. Fill the mold to the top with epoxy. 
  15. Slightly tap the box portion of the mold on the table to get the air bubbles to rise to the top. 
  16. Slightly glide a heat gun over the surfaces of the epoxy resin to eliminate air bubbles. 
  17. Slide the wood form around the bottom of the box so the silicon mold keeps the proper shape. 
  18. Let the epoxy resin cure in the molds for 24-48 hours. 
  19. Once completely cured, remove from the molds to reveal the final project!
