Hello Blogger Friends!
From time to time I had ladies email me asking how I made my La Cream matchbox dresser. Since I have't done a tutorial in a while, so I thought I will share the tutorial today. This tutorial can also be applied to the 6 draws dresser that I made also.
I used SU matchboxes but you can use any box as long as it is like a matchbox.
This is how I assembled my matchbox.
You will need 9 of them
I glue them 3 at a time side by side like shown. You should have 3 sets of this.
Apply glue all over. Then adhere the middle boxes. Do the same to the last set.
Cut a piece of card stock 3 x 3 1/2 inches and score on the 3 1/2 inch size at 1/2 inch and 3 inch. See picture below
Apply strong adhesive to the 1/2 inch ends (both ends) and adhere it to the back of the 9 draws. Position it in the center. This back piece is for holding the mirror part.
You should be able to push the 9 draws. View from the back.
Next you will need 2 pieces of card stocks measure 3 x 6 3/4 inches.
Optional: 2 pieces of chip boards 3 x 6 3/4 inches
For durability I cover my chip boards with the card stocks. Round the corners.
Then adhere one piece on the top and one on the bottom. Making sure to leave 1/4 inch on the sides and on the front. The back side should line up evenly with the 9 draws.
I used this chip board for the mirror panel. I covered it with card stock.
And adhere it to the back
When apply adhesive to the mirror panel, make sure you don't apply it on the draws otherwise you won't be able to open the draw.
I used these for the stands.
Thanks for visiting! Have a wonderful weekend.
