Be sure to leave comments on our blogs this week to be in the running for great prizes.  VLVS will be giving away a couple of pounds of rubber stamps, and we will be giving away a Scor-Pal and a Scor-Envi.  The more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win! 
 
Today I get to share my project with the fabulous Scor-Pal and Viva Las Vegas Stamps

I loved the stamps I chose and right away had an idea for a cute way to use them.



Project Recipe:
Stamps - Plate 1116
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Mementa
Die Cuts - Spellbinders
Brads - Unknown
Scoring Tool - Scor-Pal
Mat - Scor-Mat
Adhesive - Scor-Tape


For each drawer start with a piece of cardstock measuring 8 1/2" by 7". Score at 1" and 2", turn a 1/4 turn and repeat and repeat until all 4 sides are scored as in the photo.

Cut away the 3 squares on each corner as shown in the photo. Snip the remaining square to the score line to form a flap so you can create the corner.

A big tip is to cut the flap to make an angle as shown in the photo to make the corner easier to form and to make a crisper corner.

Add Scor-Tape as shown to the inside sides.

Turn over and add Scor-Tape to the flaps on the outside.

Form the drawer on the scored lines and use the Scor-Tool to create crisp edges from the inside out.

Each drawer is designed to fit the doll on the stamp plate.

To join the drawers a sleeve needs to made for each drawer. By creating each drawer individually means this project can be adapted to create as many drawers as you like. The sleeves are created from a piece of cardstock measuring 12" by 3". On the 12" side score at 2". 3" 7 1/2" and 8 1/2".

Check for a clean fit around the drawer and then create the sleeve using Scor-Tape to adhere. The drawer should fit snuggly in the sleeve. Add Scor-Tape on the outside to attach the drawers together.

The completed drawers before decoration.

Decorate the outside of the drawers with coordinating paper.

To create stability I made a top and base from a die cut piece with chipboard underneath it for strength. Attach to the top and bottom of the drawers with Scor-Tape.

I added a mirror backed with a decorative die to make the drawers into a pretty little girls dresser.

To make sure the mirror stayed in place I created a stand from chipboard covered in coordinating paper that was attached to the mirror and the dresser.

The drawers open to store the stamps, the paper dolls and clothes.

I stamped and colored 5 dolls and stamped and cut the clothes from coordinating paper. I plan on completely paper piecing the outfits at a later time.






This is a great project to give to any girl that loves fashion and needs something to do on an inside afternoon. The top drawer has room for a pair of scissors and a stamp pad so more dolls and clothes can be made when the fancy takes her.
I hope you liked this and make sure you looked at all the fabulous projects this week.

I absolutely love this little chest! I think I will make one to hold gifts for Christmas. Mom will go crazy for this when she opens it and finds earrings and a necklace. And, it's perfect for my SIL's gift card. I think I'll slip little treats in the other drawers as well.
