Another TopNote Dresser

Good Morning,

This is the same post from two weeks ago.  Somehow I published this post.  It meant to be for today.  So here it is.
A few people requested me to do  this TopNote Dresser tutorial.  It is quite simple to make this TopNote dresser. I got this adorable box design from cleaning up my mess.  Isn't it great to make a mess sometime?

The bottom two draws are match boxes  style and the top one is the pizza box style.
Here is the measurement for the pizza box: 6 x 9 1/16. 
(Note: this picture is not a printable template.) 

Score on the 6" size - 1" from each end. 

Score on the 9 1/16" @ 1, 4, 5, 8 1/16 (Note: from 5" score line to 8 1/16" score is 3 1/16" big, this will be the lid for the pizza box. This will allow the pizza box to close nicely).

This is the match box measurement: 7 x 8 card stock or pattern paper
On the 7" size score @ 1, 2, 5, and 6
On the 8" size score @ 1, 2, 6, and 7
Cut off where I marked with the "X" or three of the squares on the corner.

Two bands for the match boxes, each measure 3 x 11
Score @ 4 1/8, 5 1/4, 9 3/8, and 10 1/2

                                          Here I marked "L" for the lid and "B" for the box base on the pizza box.

                                                 Decorate all your pieces before assemble them.

                                              This is the pizza box piece. I forgot to take the shot with the brads. You should at this point add the embellishment.  Then you can assemble the box.
                             These are the match box pieces. Again, add the brads before assembling   the boxes.

 This is the band for the match box.  You should have two of them.
Wrap the band around the match box so it will fit properly.

Next, you will need 4 TopNote pieces.  
You will adhere two of the top notes pieces to one of the match box.  
The other two top note pieces, you will adhere them to the pizza box.
You should have three pieces that look like this.

 Now you are going to stack them together. 
Take the middle match box , without the top note, and apply adhesive.  I used liquid adhesive so that I can center it easily.

Then apply adhesive on the match box and place the pizza box on top of that.  Ta! da! you are done!

Decorate the top draw/dresser anyway you like.

Here are two more.



Hope you've enjoyed today tutorial.  You are welcome to case this.  A link back to my blog is greatly appreciated.

Note: if you use all designer papers, it's very quick to make this project. I had used non SU pattern papers and it took no time at all but it didn't come out as nice. I would love to see what you came up with.

Thank you for visiting.  Have a great day!
