Trattoria Blog Hop

Trattoria Blog Hop!!

So today I am working with Club Scrap's Trattoria kit. 
Mat Board
Flower brads
Large Matchboxes - or make or own using cereal boxes
Modge Podge or Bookbinding glue

To create this 4 way drawer Tower - you will need 12 large matchboxes (you can buy these at the dollar store) - I did not have quite enough of them - So I deconstructed one of the boxes I did have and used it as a template, and used old cereal and snack boxes to create more 'drawers' as you can see in the steps here:

Score edges with bone folder:

 Adhere flaps to box and use clips to hold together while drying:

To create tower - I used mat board - I get my board board from a local frame shop - I can buy a big bag of 'scraps' for like $10 and there is always something in that bag I can work here I have cut a of pieces.  I have cut 24 pieces 1 1/5 x 4 7/8 and 4 pieces 7 3/4 x 7 3/4.

Use adhesive to adhere short pieces to large piece as shown:

Adhere next (4) short pieces as shown:

Make sure the matchboxes comfortable fit in the slots as shown:

Adhere the large piece on top as shown:

Adhere short pieces on 2nd level as shown:

Adhere large piece as shown:

Adhere short pieces on 3rd level as shown:

Add large piece as shown:

Use flower brads on drawers with tags to allow you to pull drawers open and label drawers.
