Advent Calendar- Altered Slide Boxes

Advent Calendar......I decided this would be a cute idea, and wanted to try it out.... I think it turned out pretty!

I used wooden Bingo numbers for the drawer pulls on both sides, as well as the little feet on the bottom.
 I used a metal Poinsettia, metal corner pieces, and flat back pearls from and some little flowers and bells I already had here. I drizzled everything with Frosted Lace Stickles to resemble snow.

Finished up with my handmade stamp....

Mini Albums

Here's a collection of mini albums I've made over the last year or so...

Altered Slide Boxes

I bought these little white slide boxes in bulk for this purpose.... I wanted to make little chest of drawers to give out as gifts...
I started with 6 boxes.... and glued all 6 together to make a chest of drawers...

Once all glued together, I took the measurements of the inner box, and cut strips of paper to fit the outsides of them.

Once I scored them where the corners go, I glued the strips onto the boxes.

I glued down a strip of cardstock down to cover the whole outside....

I then distress inked the outside, and punched holes into the center of each drawer and pushed the backs of the buttons into the holes, and glued those down.

I glued flat back pearls to the bottom for feet, and trimmed the outside with brown ribbon.
I added some metal embellishments  and some pretty flowers.

All metal embellishments, buttons and flat back pearls are from  !! Go and check her out!!
