Chest Of Drawers

Happy Hump Day to everyone in blogland!!! This week is just flying by. Maybe it's because my daughter does not have school on Friday (teacher's workshop) or on Monday (holiday). Also my husband has been home every night this week (he usually travels for work).

With that being said, I have not had a lot of spare time to be creative except for yesterday. I spent the ENTIRE day creating this chest of drawers. I had seen something similar to this on Splitcoaststampers but there wasn't any directions or measurements so I was on my own. I think it came out pretty cute though. Each of the drawers pull out. What a perfect gift for someones office desk or maybe a teacher's gift. The drawers are a pretty good size too (5 1/2" wide x 3 1/2" deep).

The drawer pulls are some wooden buttons that I had and just colored them with my copic marker. I added glitter to the inside of each button to give them some bling.

I don't own the Top Note die from Stampin Up but I do have a Cricut Cartridge that makes the same exact shape. And with the Cricut I could make it any size I wanted.

My chest of drawers measures 5" tall x 6" wide x 3 3/4" deep. If I get real ambitious, I might try making some different sizes so that I will have a set.
Thanks for stopping in for a visit today. I really appreciate it.


Paper: Cosmo Cricket

Ink: Copic marker - R39

Wow, I am impressed, really don't know how I could create such a pretty chest. Love it and your creativity to do something as intricate as this without any tutorial but your eyes!

This turned out super cute! I may have to see what I can create too.
