Momenta and Scor-Pal Blog Hop!

Today it is my turn to share my project that was featured on the Scor-pal blog as part of this week's Scor-pal and Momenta blog week. Of course, if you missed this project or any of the other great projects from the Scor-pal team you'll want to hop on over there and see what's been going on this week. Be sure to leave comments on each post from this week for a chance to win some great prizes. Entry deadline in 8am Monday, July 2, so there's still time.

First off I have a lovely treat basket.  I have used the Cuddle and Coo collection from Momenta.

Start with a 12x12 piece of cardstock and score at 4” and 8”, turn the paper 90 degrees and score again at 4” and 8”.  Fold all scored lines.  Score and fold each corner diagonally and bring them up to the middle.  Decorate each square with 3 ¾” squares and attach a ribbon (or as I did, beads) to the middle and presto!  A cute treat basket!  I made the flowers with a Stampin Up! punch,  I layered several layers and attached them together with a brad.

Next is my Trinket Chest.  I used Magnolia Stamps, colored with Distress Inks  to decorate the top.  Here are the instructions:

The drawer are 3”x3”.  Start with a piece of paper 6”x6” and score each side at 1 ½”.  Attach a drawer liner, 2 ¾” x 2 ¾”  in the middle.


To create the drawer pulls, I start with a brad, eyelet and flower decoration.  Attached flower to brad with hot glue, then thread the eyelet through the post of the brad, as shown.  Punch a hole through the drawer front and attach brad, the eyelet will provide just enough space to lift it off of the paper. 

Repeat to create 8 drawers.

Next wrap a 3” x 10” piece of cardstock around the drawer, there will be overlap, this is where you will attach the slip cover together with Scor-Tape.

Cut a 3” x 3” of chipboard and attach to the top of one of the drawers, this will stabilize everything really good.  Stack another drawer on top. 

Adhere all of the drawer sets together to create your chest.  Attach covered 3”x 3”, chipboard to the sides.  The top and bottom are covered 7”x7” pieces of chipboard.
