Step 1: 

We begin by creating a lid for the duct tape bowl you made in Part One. This topper will need a lip. To create one, you need to use your T.P. tube. Cut it straight down the middle using your scissors.

Step 2: 

Open it up, lay it flat and using your ruler (my ruler is 1" wide) divide it into 1 inch strips. Out of my tube, I was able to get three strips. Measure in 1/2" from the end and make a mark. This will be the lip part.

Step 3: 

Cut out the pieces. Using your scissors make small slits around the perimeter of the piece of cardboard.  Cut up to the line but not over it. This is similar to what we did in Part One with our duct tape.

Step 4: 

Next you will add the lip to the end of the roll.  Place your TP Tube roll piece around the top edge of the end of the roll. Fold and wrap it onto the roll at the same time. This will give your lip the rounded shape you are looking for.  You will likely need two of these pieces to go around your end of the roll.  Don't worry if they do not go completely around and leave a small gap.  We will use that later for the tab.

Step 5: 

Next, glue these TP Tube pieces to the outside of your topper. (This time you are using the full piece and not trimming like you did in Part One). Carefully place some hot glue, and wrap these pieces around. (Tip: Using a little bit of an overlap makes this even more solid)

Step 6: 

Now to cover the topper. Take your X-Acto knife, cut a small piece, and line it up to the base.

Step 7: 

Carefully, using your X-Acto knife and a good work surface, make small slits in the tape and wrap around the topper.

Step 8: 

To finish the topper I created a duct tape sticker. I used parchment paper and traced around the base of my container.

Step 9: 

Place a couple pieces of tape over your parchment paper and cut out the circle.  Then, just remove the parchment paper and you have a perfect sticker to cover your lid.

Step 10: 

In order to attach the lid to the bowl you will need a tab. Take a small piece of duct tape (about 1" wide), place it on the topper where you left the small gap. Attach another piece of duct tape directly over that.

Step 11: 

Seal off the tab, and using your scissors carefully trim any excess.

Step 12: 

A perfectly elegant topper is finished! Now to put everything all together ...

Step 13: 

Using a different color duct tape (or not? it's up to you!) Line up both rolls, and start to simply roll a piece of tape around perimeter of your jewelry box. This makes a nice, finished outside edge.

Step 14: 

You will attach the lid by simply covering the tab you just created with this tape.  Hold the tab down with your finger and continue wrapping the tape around. Trim any excess.

Step 15: 

All done! Fill it up! Makes different sizes maybe and stack them together??
