4-Drawer Easel Card for H2H

It's challenge time again on Heart 2 Heart Challenges. This week the challenge is Back To are to create anything that makes you think of back to school. I created a 4 Drawer Easel Card. It showcases a calendar, and the drawers could hold paper clips, rubber bands etc. It would make a great teacher's gift!
I found the instructions HERE, on Ink Something 2 with Kristine. But you know me, I changed things a bit from her instructions...she made origami drawers, and I didn't want to waste that much paper, so I came up with slightly different measurements to accomodate that. I also changed the configuration of the drawers. My tutorial is towards the end of the post!

If you can believe it, I hadn't used my Cherry-O papers yet, lol. I guess I was waiting for just the right project. And this was it!

As I was embellishing the Easel Card, I discovered that the some of the Spring Blossom Just Blooms make great 'cherries'.

Recipe: CTMH PP-Cherry-O, CTMH CS-Chocolate, Tulip & Colonial White, CTMH Ink-Black, Garden Green, Chocolate & Tulip, CTMH SS-Moments In Time & Live Inspired, Nestabilities-Labels 1, Labels 4 and Fancy Tags, Cuttlebug Vintage Die Cut, Martha Stewart Double Loops Border & Corner Punch, Red Organdy Ribbon, CTMH Just Blooms Flowers, CTMH Chocolate Bigger Brads, Foam Squares, Rhinestones.

The first few steps show how I make the drawers.

The next step is how to make the 'wrappers', the piece that will hold the drawer.

Be sure to check out the other Back to School examples by the H2H DT, you can find their links on my sidebar, or you can check them out over on the H2H blog!
I'd love to see what Back to School means to you! Be sure to post your creation to your blog or other online gallery, and then head over to H2H to add your link so that we can all see it! You could even be choosen for the Friday Five.

Loved this tutorial - really easy to follow. Please take a look at my blog as I have made a 4 drawer easel card following your instructions - well sort of, I had to put my own mark on it but isn't that what crafting is all about? Sarah xxx

This is EXACTLY what I've been looking for. I screwed up on the measurements, so my demo is a little...not good, but overall, a tweak here and a tweak there, it's gonna be fab! Thanks!

Shelly Hickox said...

Thanks so much for your wonderful instructions! I love your card and it inspired me to try one myself - now I think I'm hooked on them. ;-)
