Jewelry Fits Nicely

This is a box that I first saw over on the Verve Parade and thought it was so sweet. It actually has drawers in it, you all may have seen it already but I hadn't and thought what a wonderful project and could be a sweet gift. So I set out to get the tutorial and make one.

Now I must say that it was alot of work, it took me two evenings to put it all together and well, quite honestly it is not perfect. I won't draw attention to my flaws but to say the least I will be making another one in the future to really fine tune some of the details of this one. And for those that are perfectionist, well do take your time making this one or else you may be disappointed. I had to laugh when I showed it to Jim as he said, "It is broken, it doesn't even open" Uhem, it has drawers on it- he looked at me like I was crazy- like what could you possibly put in those small drawers. I of course told him that jewelry would be a pretty amazing gift in that box! (wink)

Herer is a side picture that you can actually see the little drawer that I have made and it pulls out with the little decorative knob. I didn't have any true knobs so this one I made with my SU brad kit and used coordinating paper. As I am looking at the top of the box it is missing something so I will think about it and add something.
Well off I go. Have a fabulous day!

This is perfect! Too weird - I printed the tutorial for this a while ago and was going to make it this weekend. Then it shows up here on your blog. I will pay attention and hopefully it will turn out as nice as yours:) Thanks for sharing Heidi.
