Hi Everyone! I decided to make a 4 Drawer Box Card as a Mothers Day Trinket holder gift.
Here is the walk through tutorial:
I grabbed 2 pieces 12″ x 12″ Pink Cardstock for the Box and the lid.
I cut one of the Pink Card Stock Paper at 12″ Length x 6 1/4″ Height. Fold at at 3″, 6″ and 9″.
When the folded paper is standing should looks like this:
I cut four squares of white card stock at 5 7/8″ L x 5 7/8″ Height. These will be the drawers.
I folded the left side of the white card stock paper at 1 1/2″.
I folded the right Side of the white card stock paper at 1 1/2″
I folded the bottom side of the white card stock paper at 1 1/2″
I folded the top side of the white card stock paper at 1 1/2″
For each corner, I cut one side to the first fold line. See the pictures below
I folded the top left corner down and glued the backside of it with a fine glue tip pen and attached it to the rectangle near it.
I folded the right corner and glued the backside of it and it to the rectangle near it.
I did the same thing to the other 2 corners until it formed a box.
I repeated the process with the other 3 white card stock papers to make 4 boxes altogether.
I taped one side of a box with double sided tape and attached it to the left hand side of the pink card stock paper.
This is what it should look like if you stand it up…
I attached another drawer to the bottom right side of the pink card stock paper.
This is what it looks like when the card is stood upright:
I cut two pink card stock papers at 3 1/2″ Height 7 1/8 Width each
I folded one of the pink card stock papers 1 1/2″ Length and 1″ Height
I folded the right side over to the left up to where the “tab” begins
I made a triangle fold from the center top to the edge on both sides
I Repeated this process with the other pink card stock paper. I laid flat the 2 pink card stock papers with the tabs pointing left. I glued the right paper tab to the left pink card stock paper.
I propped up the pink card stock paper and glued the other tab to form a square.
I pinched one corner and glued it together:
I pinched another corner and glued it together
I pinched the 3rd corner and glued it together and finally the 4th corner and glued it together.
This is what the lid looks like when all four corners are glued
This is the inside of the lid
Here is the lid on top of the box:
These is the paper I used to decorate the outside of the box. (Please don’t follow the measurements on the top part of the picture).
I love this rose pattern textured paper from DCWV The Primrose Stack (Product Link at the end of this post)
This is the front cover of the paper stack. I had this stack for a few years now and I used some of the papers to cover composition book journals. I finally found a use for the very pretty rose paper!
I used double sided tape to attach the paper to the outside of the box.
I think the glittered border the paper came with works well for the box!
I used different scraps of fabrics to decorate the drawer sides and the inside of them.
Roses are my favorite flower! So pretty 🙂
Here is the top viewpoint of the cool spiral pattern the drawers make.
I had a hard time deciding on wall paper for the inside of the card. That’s why I have paper scattered everywhere!
I decorated with journal card squares and framed them with die cuts. I used small stamps to decorate the front of the drawers. I stamped the images on white card stock paper and used an oval die cut that had stitching imprints on it. I stamped the inspirational words on clear label sheets that I had in my scrap box, and I fussy cut them and stuck them on the side of each of the images. I also used butterfly and flower sequins. I REALLY wished I had Lace and Strings of Pearls at this point! But I made do with what I had 🙂
In the end, I used die cut frames for the Journal Cards, a piece of burlap as a layer behind the pear picture, and 2 pearl embellishments.
For the outside, I made small roses and glued them to the top of the box. I used Impression Obsession small flowers and large flowers die cuts to make them. (Product link to the Small Flowers down below – I couldn’t find the large flowers?) – I used a punch out for the border and rhinestone embellishments for the corners.
