Ladies dresser - Drawer easel card

Good evening all

I hope you've all been enjoying the past 2 days of gorgeous sunshine and your weekend has been lovely 

It's my mom's birthday Tom and past few days (after many mistakes lol) I've been working on this drawer easel card for her.
Usually I follow simple instructions online but as I had Hunkydory board and book thought I'd follow instructions from there. 

 
My brain has been foggy past few days so for some reason could not follow instructions and had to redo the drawers and base today. 


I think it looks like a dressing table for your bedroom but a miniature version of course lol.

The hunkydory board is really good as I didn't have to follow measurements but just score and cut and stick.  So many projects and easy cards to do and quicker too plus it has box making technology on the board too.  Click here to view , just £24.99 : Hunkydory adoreable scoreboard


The dress is made completely from paper , no die cuts or stencils.  I first saw it on pin it and looked really easy so thought I'd draw my own template and figure it out myself but you can get a template and see another finished version here: 3D dress template

My drawing:





You cut it out, stick it onto your chosen patterned paper, cut around the template that you've drawn or printed out.  Score the lines in the middle of the dress then fold valley and mountain fold each score line.  Once it's done stick the top underneath top of skirt and place ribbon and bow in The middle and decorate as you want to.

The drawers are made from Mirri board from Kanban, cardstock around the drawers and base are from beautiful first edition 12x12 paper pads. 

The ruffled ribbon and button are from hobby house kit.


Dies I used are Tattered lace crescent creations dies and Polkadoodles nesting die plus spellbinders rose creations dies. 

The small flowers, gems, pearls and sentiments are all from old stash and beads for the drawers were from Poundland  


I hope she's not peaking at my blog tonight as I told her not to but for tomorrow mom "Happy Birthday" and I hope you have a lovely day! 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend bloggers and I thank you so much for stopping by

Lots of love
