Eight Drawer Box









This is an eight drawer box.  The drawers are made with Navy card stock.   The top was covered with a sheet of 6x6 Webster's Pages.  The 6x6 cardboard on the back of two different Webster Pages pads were used for the top and bottom.  The design paper was attached with ScorTape.  There are four boxes on the bottom row and four boxes on the upper row; two boxes on each side.   Gold buttons are added for knobs.  One of the stamps from the JustRite "Loving Thoughts" set was stamped and cut out with an Oval Nestie.  Blue vellum flowers were added along with some black flourishes from BossKut.  A Martha Stewart butterfly was added.  

You can purchase the Websters Pages, Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Punch, Vellum, Pearls, ScorTape and JustRite Stamps  from Joan's Gardens.

I believe this project qualifies for Joan's Garden Thursday Challenge.  My box is vintage and I used a Spellbinder Nestability.  Have you joined in on the challenge?  Check it out here.

Additional pictures:

This is one of the drawers before taping up sides.  I used ScorTape to hold them together.



This is how the four drawers were place on the 6x6 base.  ScoreTape was used to attach them to the base.  There are two rows of drawers.

Hi Selma,

I love this box. It just amazes me all of the wonderful things you can create by just using card stock and a few other supplies. This box is just adorable.

Hi Selma, This box is just beautiful!! I have not seen a template for one using two layers of drawers as you have put them. Could you tell me from which Websters Pages paper pad, this particular page came from? I love it.
