Matchbox Drawers

Hi there stampers! Happy Thursday!
Today's project is one I've been seeing here and there and knew I just had to make one too. It is so stinking cute it's hard to resist! The best part is it is easy peasy! It is also my submission to the Diva Coffee Break Challenge for the week since I used my Big Shot!

I started with some Baja Breeze cardstock and ran it through my new Matchbox Die from the Occasions Mini three times and then just put the three matchboxes together. The base of the box doesn't even require any adhesive-how great is that?! The top sleeve part only uses a tiny bit of Sticky Strip. Then I used Sticky Strip to adhere all three boxes together and added a piece of Walk in the Park DSP also from the Occasions Mini (I LOVE this paper!)all the way around the stack of matchboxes. I added some Baja Breeze Striped Ribbon (LOVE this too!) and used Mini Glue Dots to stick the buttons from the Button Bouquet package. Easy peasy and super cute!

This would be a great project for students or scouts to make or as teacher appreciation gifts filled with candies, paper clips, chapsticks or whatever little treat you want!

Here's one I saw at my Woo Hoo Stampers event used with the Top Note die as the top and bottom! The used some chipboard, a Fleurette and a butterfly from the Beautiful Butterflies die to embellish the top! Can these get any cuter?

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!


  1. Very nice! Yes, the Walk in the Park DSP is very pretty... so pretty that I'm not using it, what if I ran out of it :) Greetings.

  2. Nuh uh! I am almost speechless- these couldn't be any more clever! Wow! Oh boy, I'm in trouble now... gonna hafta get that die! Love the buttons for the drawer pulls! I could see these as awesome party favors at a little girl's dress-up birthday party! Thanks so much for sharing and linking to the DCBD blog or I might have missed them!!
