MatchBox Desk

Good Afternoon,

I saw this matchbox desk on several blogs and had wanted to make one.  I added the center draw so this desk is pretty big.


My  younger son suggested that I put some pencils in the pencil holder and he made the two pencils. He folded the paper to make edges like the #2 pencil.  Inside the paper pencil is a tooth pick to make them sturdy. I colored the tip black to make it like real pencil.  I also made a cup.  And to brighten up the desk I glued the quilling tulip on it.  I also added beads as the desk stands. I was thinking of making a chair to go with the desk but had second thought.  May be one day I will make that chair.
I am going to link this to:

Thank you everyone who take the time to  leave me such kind words.  Your comments are greatly appreciated and always put a smile on me. :)

Oh my gosh is that ever adorable. What a fun project. I always amazes me what people find to alter to look like something else-like your cup and pencil. Just darling.

Bear Hugs,

Helen, this is fabulous! I love everything about this! You never fail to impress me with your crafting talents, and it is obvious it also runs in the family, first your daughter, now your son...What is next, dear lady? (somehow I missed these posts, probably when I was unable to access the internet)

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.
