My friend Jacqueise let me document how she turned a simple apple case into a novel way to organize her jewelry!
She purchased the apples from a bulk membership warehouse. ( I guess she really loves apples!)
Aren’t these apples gorgeous?
Simply clip the crate in half, remove the apples and insert your favorite jewelry and accessorize for instant organization.
Place your instant jewelry organizer into any drawer!
