Hi Bloggers! It’s time. It’s here!!!!
I am SO excited to be here today to kick off our month long CHRISTMAS EXTRAVAGANZA!!!!
From today and all the way to Christmas Eve we will have new inspirational gift ideas for you to make or give away this holiday season!
There will be give-a-ways too, so be sure to read all the way to the bottom of this post.
So what do you say we get this party started???
*NOTE: This post is VERY PHOTO HEAVY*
First I would like to say, I am a HUGE Lori Whitlock fan. I own almost every single one of her designs. I love Lori’s designs as much as I love Hero Arts stamps. They are by far my two favorite companies to play with and it was a match made in heaven for me to combine the two for this project.
I used this file from Lori Whitlock: One Drawer Box. If you have a Silhouette it is available in the Silhouette store. If you have a different electronic die cutting machine, you can purchase it from Lori’s webstore. She has SVG, DXF etc.
I started by making 21 boxes out of green cardstock. I made 3 out of brown cardstock. All the little icons & numbers were cut out of Hero Arts Snow Layering paper and then colored with ink or Copics. It was just easier for me to cut out of white paper that cut crisp than to try and cut tiny details out of a thicker cardstock.
To make sure that the patterned paper on the fronts of my drawers were cut to the exact size I made modifications to the boxes in my Silhouette Studio. Here is a quick video to show you how to make them.
Here is a close up of the boxes:
It was so very simple to make.
A few tips if you make this:
* cut ONE box first (make sure your drawer fits before cutting them all)
* use a very strong adhesive attach sides and bottoms of boxes (I used Scor-tape and glue lines)
* place the boxes in the shape of the tree then lay your patterned paper on them so that you can make sure your colors are balanced before you adhere them.
GIVE-A-WAY!!!!! Follow the Rafflecopter directions to enter the give-a-way.
