Another 4 Drawer Box

tut19c

 

I am loving these boxes and I know a lot of you are too, I have had lots of requests for a tutorial so if you pop over to my new Tutorial Blog you will find a step by step with pictures on how I made this box.

This is a real change for me no pre-bought flowers, no stamps and not much colour.  But I loved making it and hope to do some more cards along these lines.   The Papers are all from The D-Crafts Hanoverian V&A Pad.  The sides of the drawers have been covered with a 1” wide strip of card stock then I have added a strip of white card punched with a Martha Stewart Punch,  this has been done on all four sides.

I made a 5.1/2” square base card and matted and layered Mink Cardstock and Backing paper to the front, a Martha Stewart round the corner punch set was used to make the lace square which I then distressed with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, a swirl was cut in one corner using a Marianne Designs Swirl.  The flower and leaves are cut using Magnolia Doo Hickey Die Cuts Peony Petals and leaves Bon Voyage Foliage from Crafts U Love, these have also been distressed with Frayed Burlap DI.

I have decorated  the inside of the card to match the front.
