Man the last 6 months just flew by

It is time to try out for the Design Team for The Robin's Nest. I have had so much fun working with their awesome products that I am going to try out again.

I used the beautiful and soft paper called Glitter Discovery Girl to make this little fun dresser.

I searched on line to find a free matchbox svg file and cut out six little boxes.

I folded and glued all 6 boxes.

Next I stacked the boxes on top of each other and side by side using all 6 boxes.

I used the reverse side of Glitter Discovery Girl to make the top of the dresser.

I wanted the front of the drawers to stand out so I layered them. I added them to the top of some chipboard and made the 2nd layer smaller than the first, therefore giving it a relief look. I then added some clear Dew Drops for the drawer hand pulls. I inked all the edges on the entire dressed.

I then used Wedding Cut Out cardstock and cut out a doily for the top of the dresser. I used some scraps of paper to write on to look like little notes.

To finish it off, I cut some very thin strip of paper and rolled them up so create the flower pot. If you don't have a quilling tool, no problem you can use a toothpick or something that is round.

I used some of the leftover scraps to make the flowers and glued them in the flower pot. Finally I took 2 different size glue dot and glued them together, inked them and used that as the feet of the dresser. You now have a cute little dresser to store of Dew Drops in sorted by color.
