Chest of Drawers

OKay so loooong time no post!
My three older kids were home from school last week for spring break so things were really busy around here...too busy to stamp....but it was all good-I love when my kids are home from school because we can sleep in and stay up a little later and do what ever we want!

I did get a chance to make this super cute "dresser" though. It took me several days to complete it because I could only do a little bit here and there. 
I made it for odd and end embellishments. It fits perfectly on my scrap desk...and I must tell you I LOve it!

If you haven't been over to Lauren's blog you HAVE to go check it out! She is so clever, amusing and talented! 
I used her idea to stack the matchboxes on top of each other to make a "dresser". 
Her templates are so easy to use and so cheap-you down load one for $5 and then use it over and over and over again. The one thing that I do need to invest in to make more boxes and such is the scor-pal. It's really hard to make those perfect score lines without it. 

I used 8 sheets of 8.5x11 sheets of cardstock to make the boxes and sleeves. I decided to use white cs just in case it didn't  turn out......I hate to waste colored CS! ;O)
Then I just attached patterned paper to make it pretty. 

Thanks for looking and have a great MONday!
