I am excited to finally be able to post this project. My friend Pat and I started working on creating a box, with drawers, out of a cigar box, about three weeks ago. The actual box did not take long to decorate, but what took so long was figuring exact measurements to create six little boxes, for drawers inside the box. I'm not going to give you the measurements because cigar boxes comes in many different sizes and the drawers need to be created to fit perfect inside your particular box. Pat's box is decorated totally different - all in a music theme. She hasn't quite finished it, so I did not take a picture yet.
I love Graphic 45 design paper so decided to use papers from the "A Ladies Diary" Collection. This pad has the most gorgeous "ladies" and I love the flowers on many of the pages. To create dimensional flowers very similar to the ones in the design paper, I used the new Memory Box "Fabulous Phlox" dies. They were die cut using white card stock and sponged with "Tattered Rose" Distress Ink. Don't you think this die created a perfect match to those in the design paper!
This is a closeup of the front. Hopefully you can see how close the flowers look to those in the design paper. In this picture you can also see how I added tiny Kaiser Craft pearls to the necklace on the beautiful lady.
Here you can see the drawers inside. I created six little "Match Boxes" that fit tightly inside.
All the paper used to decorate this box is from the Graphic 45 "A Ladies Diary Collection".
