Three Desk Drawer...

Happy Tuesday everyone...today is the last day of school for my daughter and every year I like to give something to the teachers to let them know how much I appreciate all they have done throughout the year. So with that...I'm on to my project. I wanted to give something that the teachers could use...at their desk or wherever. So I saw what 1LuvnMama made and really wanted to try it out. if you want to see her creation...click here. but when I found out how much paper and work it took...well, I decided to make only 3 drawers. I used the XL Sizzix box #3 die for this. I just had to create my own band around the bottom two to make it into drawers. bought some of those pearl brads from Stamp and Create and used them for my knobs on the drawers.
here's a shot from the top...I used 12 x 12 CS for the base and then used DP to decorate. I also just bought some very pretty flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I am so hooked! I guess you can call me the "flower girl" too. I love to use flowers on everything...lol! I also added that butter cream shimmerz on the flowers. remember...Stamp and Create is having a 25% off sale for all different kinds of shimmerz. go check it out!!!
here's a picture of when everything is opened...filling them with some goodies to eat and some to use. I hope they enjoy this one.
thanks for stopping by! have a wonderful day and till then..."A memory lasts forever, never does it die. True friends stay together and never says good-bye"

Be Blessed,



The teachers will this!! Very Pretty, I love the DP & the pearl brads are a nice touch.
