Easel Card with drawers

My friend and fellow CTMH consultant, Renee and I get together one or two evenings a month to create a project. Yesterday, she decided that she'd like to create this easel card with drawers. Although on the inside I was thinking it was a very ambitious project and I wasn't so sure of the outcome...I rolled up my sleeves, put on a smile and we got to work. After an evening of chatter and laughter (and once we figured out the scoring), it came together fairly quickly. I was thrilled with the end result! I think I can even use Renee's fabulous quote to describe it - it looks very "CHI CHI LA LA." Thanks Renee for making me go out of my creating comfort zone when I'm not so sure I want to. I can't wait to see what you have in store for us the next time we meet!

Below is a picture of the box - closed/folded up:
Note: Here is a hint of some new product coming in the Close to my Heart Autumn/Winter Catalog (available Sept. 1st from me). I used the Mistletoe Creative Basics Paper Pack, and stickease, along with the ornament shaped Dimensional Elements and Mistletoe Assortment of brads.

Below is a side view of the easel card, standing up and the drawers open. I thought it would be cute to add some candy or little trinkets to the drawers for a little, nice surprise.

Below is a front view of the card standing up:

The wheels are turning and I have many more ideas/themes for some more Easel card boxes. I will post as soon as I create them.


  1. Very cute! I want to make one -- when can I come to your house to play?! :)

  2. OMG! That is soooo cute...when is the class going to be? :-)
