Tiny Dresser

Hello,

Today I would like to share with you my tiny dresser I made.  I got the Idea from a book for using your Scor-Pal to make these cute little projects.  The book is called "Score, Fold, Create!"  I LOVE this book!!!  So many great projects in it.  





Anywho, this is my idea for the little three drawer organizer they had in the book.  I made it to look like an antique dresser.  The mirror is made with the Framelits-Label Connection (125598) (you can get yours HERE, this is my Stampin' Up demonstrator).  I used the 3rd (from the center) one for the mirror then I used the 4th one for the backboard of the mirror. 

The box was made following the directions in the book then I just layered the paper on the outside to make it more " homey" looking.  For the jewelry box I just free handed that and made it from some black card stock and some decorative washi tape and then coated it with Glossy Accents.  The butterfly cabochon was purchased on Ebay, just look up flatback resin cabochon.  The hand mirror I got out of the Cricut Cartridge "Sentimentals" on page 60.  The lamp also came from there on page 40. 

For the mirror I cut it at 1 inch and put about 6 layers of basic shape, then I punched out a circle from some silver reflective card stock, (sorry I don't remember the brand) I also used that for the larger mirror.  Then I layered 3 of the first layer on top of the circle.  Then I cut one shadow in the opposite direction (flip) so the dark grey side would show on that silver paper I used.  That paper that I cut the mirror out of is from Recollections, not sure if they make it anymore though. 

For the lamp I cut it at 1.75 and put about 12 layers together of the basic shape.  Then I cut 2 of the 1st layer in bright shiny gold from Martha Stewart Essentials.  The basic layer was cut using American Crafts black card stock.  The lamp shade I made from punching a scalloped circle at 2" and then cut it in half to form a cone, then snipped off the top of the cone so it would fit over the lamp I made. 

The lace I used is just some scraps I had in a box, that was also used for the piece of cloth hanging out of the drawer.

The drawer pulls are just buttons with their attaching hole cut off and I used dimensionals to make them stick out a bit so you could open the drawers.

I also used Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink to ink the edges of the paper layers. 

I think thats all, if I left anything out and you have questions please feel free to comment or CONTACT ME and I will try to answer any questions you might have.

Thank you, and have a blessed day!
