Easel Card with Drawer Tutorial




Hi, Nancy Hill and excited to share my tutorial on how I make my Easel Cards with Drawers.  I have been putting photos, chocolates and other gifts inside these cards with drawers.  I highly recommend heavy card stock and if the pattern paper isn't heavy, just use heavy card stock for the frame and glue the pattern paper on it.  

I really love Heartfelt Creation coordinating papers, dies and stamps.  I used the Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower paper, dies and stamps for this card above and stamped a sentiment on the bottom of the drawer besides the Happy Birthday sentiment on top.  

Below is my measurements and I wrote my instructions as well as show you the visuals to help you through this process. Once you have done one of these cards/drawers, it will be easier to make the others.  

Instructions

Top and Bottom For Drawer

This is the bottom drawer and cut a 7 3/8" x 8 1/2 using heavy cardstock.  Score 1 1/4" on the three sides with one of the long sides not scored.  Fold the score lines.   As shown on the photo, cut along the score line of each side of the corners.  You will add double-sided self adhesive tape and tape the tabs to this box (see photo below).  I like using 1" Scor-Tape which is very adhesives and wonderful for heavy cardstock.  See below.  





Cut the top drawer at 7 5/16" x 8 7/16" and score 1 1/4" on the three sides with one of the long sides not scored.  Follow the same instruction above for the drawer.  Afterwards, add double-sided self adhesive tape on the outside of this drawer on three sides and adhere to the bottom drawer.

This is the drawer that will pull out.  Using heavy weight cardstock, cut 8 1/8" x 8 1/8" and score 1 1/8" on all four sides and fold.  Cut the top and bottom of each fold like in the corners as shown above.  Using double-sided self adhesive tape, tape the box.
