MatchBox Draws

Good Morning,
I made this matchbox draws several weeks ago but I had a hard time with the easel.  I didn't know what I wanted there.  Then my 3 and half years old daughter suggested that I put a mirror there.  So I thought, why not!

I made another draw to put right in the center and made an easel on top of that draw. I did add a brad on the top draw after I took the picture.

This is the top view when the easel lay flat.
The paper that I used to make the roses was from my son school work.  I dropped it in the recycle bag then took it back out because the paper looked and felt so nice.

Thank you so much for checking in on me.

Helen

Oh that is just fabulous. Love the mirror. Your little consultant had an excellent idea. Those roses are so pretty. Who would have thought those were destined for recycling
