My thoughts are such that unless you already have the needed applicator/s, (...pretty unlikely...) the overall expense and bother would be significantly greater than the cost and effort using true Black Velvet,(@$6.99 yd) and lack the assurance of the quality of performance that the latter provides. I've seen the difference between commercially made "Screen Flocking" and Black Velvet, and although the former is significantly better than Black paint, it's no comparison to a Plush Black velvet. None whatsoever.
You'd also have to take into account that Screen trim is NOT the same sized surface area a Jewelry Box is, and all that extra acreage means more material costs, time, and the possibility of not getting the entire job done at the same consistent level of quality.
Nope, it seems all a bit "too much' as far as effort and expense in comparison, and since so many on this Forum seem to advocate "easy & affordable" as being a sublime trait in DIY, I'd say this does not fit that criteria.
