La Cream Matchboxes Dresser

Good Morning,
 I just love this matchbox die that I got from Stampin' Up!. It is so versatile.

I really like how this dresser  turned out.   I used 9 matchboxes for this one.  I then cut small strips of pattern paper from DCVW called La Cream.  Love that pattern paper pack!  I don't have any fancy brad so I quilled a tight coil  and painted shimmer paint on them and used them as  the draw nobs.  For the stands I used small cut out shaped wood that I bought from Michael. I stained the wood using black ink then glued at the bottom.

For the upper part of the dresser, I used chip board from the $1 bin from Michael.  I love that chip board shape but couldn't fine them any more.  I cut the magnet mirror for the center.  It took me awhile to think of what kind of flowers to use for the embellishments.  Then I tried the quilling roses and love it!  I painted the roses with shimmery paint. 

This  one is one of my 3 D matchbox  favorite.  I can see myself making a few more in different colors.

Hi! I saw this on Make It Monday Linky Party, and because the thumbnail got me curious, here I am.
Wow, I have to say, looks so beautiful and of course I was thinking about a wendy house furniture. :)
This is very stylish and surely gets other crafters trying something "not every day project" too.
