Hi all! Today I am sharing how I made an Easel Drawer Card featuring Smoochie Squidgy It's been a while since I coloured up on the Squidgies, so I dusted off this cutie.
Smoochie Squidgy rubber stamp set.
Designer Paper (used - P13 Hello Beautiful)
Scalloped and Stitched circle dies.
Scoring board and bone folder
Stamp the large Smoochie Squidgy and the sentiment onto pieces of white card. Colour the image and fussy cut around the outline. Set aside to work on the box card.
9.25" x 9.25"
4.25" x 8.5"
4.25" x 4.25"
4-1/8" x 4-1/8" (x2)
1-1/8" x 4-1/8" (x6)
4" x 4" (x2)
1" x 4" (x6)
2" x 4-1/8" (x2)
2-1/8" x 4-1/8" (4)
For the drawer wrap, take the piece of card measuring 4.5" x 11.75". Score at 1-5/16", 5-5/8", 6-6/15" and 11.25"
For the drawer insert, take the piece of card measuring 9.25" square and score at 1.25" and 2.5" on all four sides.
For the easel score the piece of card measuring 4.25" x 8.5" at 4.25" and 6-3/8"
On the 9.5" square piece, cut away the outer three 1.25" sections and cut upward on the remaining one to make tabs. Take a small wedge from each side of them.
Apply adhesive to the inside of the outer large tabs and fold into the box. Use a bone folder to burnish well.
Ensure the box fits inside. It will be a little loose as the decorative layer haven't been added yet.
Adhere the small strips of paper to the small strips of card and adhere four of them to the sides of the drawer.
Fold the top of the easel on the 6-3/8" score line and apply adhesive only to the bottom 2-1/8" section
Round the corners on the long side one 2" x 4-1/8" piece of paper. Adhere both pieces inside the easel.
Adhere one of the 4" square pieces of paper to one of the 4-1/8" square pieces of card and adhere to the large section of the easel/drawer wrap.
In the centre of the drawer front (5/8" down and 2-1/8" across) make a small + with a craft knife. Insert the handle
Round the corners on the remaining 4-1/8" square card and 4" square paper, adhere them together and then adhere them to the front of the easel.
Cut a 4" scalloped circle and a 3.75" stitched circle. Adhere them together and, using foam tape, stick it to the easel front.
Cut the sentiment using a stitched rectangle die, then ink while the die is in place. Apply foam tape to the back. Push the easel into place then adhere the sentiment in front of it. This will be the stopper for holding the easel open.
Adhere Smoochie Squidgy to the circle panel, again using foam tape/dots. Add some glitter dots to embellish.
Fill the drawer with chocolates or a small gift.
