Congrats Vicki aka Vdutchr for being chosen this weeks Featured Stamper. What a fabulous gallery with so many great cards and projects to chose from . So at about 630am I started strolling through her gallery looking for something to case, I came across this Desk Stationary and knew right away I wanted to try to make one. I thought I could use one of these, but wanted mine big enough to fit a pen so I can have it handy next to the phone for messages, hopefully from the Realtor telling me the house is sold, lol The box drawer is 4x6 inches
I originally wanted to put the pen inside the drawer, then thought of a little holder to attach it to the outside of the box, but I wasn't' sure I would like it and I ran out of 1/4 inch red sticky tape so left it off for now.
No stamping on this one today, the sentiment is computer generated. Calendar was made using Printmaster and glued together with padding compound. It makes it easy to tear off each month as needed. Love this stuff, I bought it several years ago along with a metal press to make notepads and such.
ok, I'm going to do my best and give you the direction to my box.
The box is a 8 x11 piece of cs
long side score at 1,2,6,& 7 inches
short side score at 1 & 7 inches.
I like the front where the drawer slides in and out to be doubled. I cut out the score lines for this so it will lay flat and not be bulky. I also cut the score lines out of all my flaps so it doesn't get bulky either. Where the 1 and 2 inch score lines are on the long side, cut each little corner out ( the one inch square )
cut your flap at an angle, and attach to other side of the long end. adhere front flaps to inside on front , by tucking them inside, this gives you a double edge. Then fold up back flap to close the back of the box and adhere.
The drawer is made like the Nugget box bottom . Steps 1-3. I used a piece of cs 7 3/8 inch by 9 1/2 inches.
I scored all four sides at 7/8 and 1 3/4 inches. Cut each corner L out and assembled like the nugget box
The top has a piece of dp 4x6 inches, I did trim that piece a little to fit. The easel part is a piece of cs 4 x 8. I used a border punch on the end, then scored it at 3 , 3 1/2, & 6 inches. The last (less than) 2 inches tuck under the top piece of dp to form the easel part.
Decorate as you wish
I hope this makes sense, any questions please feel free to ask.
Thanks for looking
