Matchbox Dresser

Good Morning,
I saw this match box dresser on several blogs and had wanted to make one.  So finally here it is.


I used real mirror that I bought from Joann Fabric. This one is for my little neighbor up coming birthday.

The flowers are combination of  die cut and rolled spiral.

Here is another one.


I love this soft color.  The pearls and the three small flowers were for covering up the ink spots. I thought it turn out nice.


For the stands I used two pieces of beads, one star and one  round.  I stacked them together using tacky glue.  Let it dried and glue the star to the dresser base.  If you have question let me know, I will take a better picture to show you.



Thanks again for stopping. 

Helen

Amazing how you do sooooooo much hardwork, Helen. Love these dressers - particularly the second one with it's soft and gentle colours. The real mirror must add so much to it...

This is one of the prettiest little dressers I've seen made with the matchboxes. It's just so feminine and pretty and I love it's vintage feel.
