KLSNS Challenge: Boxes-n- Baskets

Happy Saturday!! I have a a FUN project to share today as well as some really great news!! Ok, first, the good news... this week at KL Stampin N' Scrappin we not only have a fun challenge but you will have a chance to win a surprise Easter package worth $15-20!! *Ü*

And now for the challenge: It's my turn to host the challenge and I figured with Easter fast approaching this might be a good time to make a box or basket for someone. There's lots of possibilities! Splitcoast Stampers resource page offers lots of tutorials to help you out.

I decided since I've made a few baskets recently, that I'd attempt one of these 4-drawer easel cards! This adorable Gillian Roberts stamp is available at KLSNS here.

For my card front, I used this Sweet Stop Sketch with a twist: fuzzy wuzzy.
*Note: I used brown glittery fun flock for the teddybear.
{Fuzzy Wuzzy Teddybear}

I saw this tutorial by my friend Chris Olsen, and in reading it I realized that she used a Sizzix die to make the drawers. I don't have that, so I made my own version for the drawers, using simple origami box instructions. I will be posting a tutorial for my version that anyone can try this Wednesday at KL Stampin N Scrappin!

I hope you'll come on over to the challenge blog to see what our design team has created to inspire you and enter to win our prize pack this week!! There's also store coupons over there too ;) What are you waiting for?!

Hi Kristine - this is just adorable - L-O-V-E the drawers, I am glad you are giving a tutorial on these as I don't have the Dies (or the Sissix) for that matter) so will be watching eagerly! Love that image - adorable Kris and the colours are perfect! God bless you! {{{hugs}}}

Wow Kristine, this is really beautiful. I have seen this box before... I think in the Magnolia Magazine but have been afraid to try it. I may just have to.
Love it.
