Matchbox Dresser

Here's a cute little project made from the Matchbox Big Shot Die. it is perfect for storing little things like candies, earrings, or even diamond rings!  These are just 3 matchboxes, stacked up, and attached with Sticky Strip. I used Rhinstone Brads for the handles, and added a 1/2 inch circle punched from vellum behind the brad. Then, I made an embossed cover to go around the outside of all of them. The colors are Certainly Celery, and Regal Rose.

I made these as "snacking gifts" for all my downline demonstrators that joined me at the Stampin' Up Seattle regional seminar recently.  I thought it would be nice to have a little sugar to snack on while we were sitting at our table watching the demonstrations :)

I have also made a five-drawer one that my kids loved so much, they all made their own versions! My boys are using them to store lego-men parts, and my daughter is storing her earrings in them :) Very cute!

Hope you have a great weekend!
