Sunday Inspiration - An Update!!

Hey Sassy fans, I'm back.. to show you my finished project I shared with you in my tutorial on Thursday, which can be found HERE.

I had a LOT of fun making this - even if the main base of the whole thing was made at like 2am in the morning! LOL.

I have used some patterned paper from Kaisercraft - Chapter One collection - LOVE these papers, the colours are so fresh! My cardstock is from a huuuge pack of Core'dinations. I wanted to keep the easel card pretty plain, as the patterned paper has loads of inspirational words on that I wanted to show off - and they go perfectly with Amelia who is available HERE from Funky Kits.

I would like to enter this 3D project into these challenges:
× Poodle Parlour - Come Fly With Me

Edited to add: Some people have been asking me how I created the handles to open each drawer. I simply measured equal distances from the edges and centre and added two 1/16" (I think that's the smallest size of eyelet, right?) I then threaded a single piece of coordinating Bakers Twine from The Ribbon Girl through each eyelet and secured with a knot. Easy peasy.. lemon.. you know the rest. Hope this helps! ;)

Thanks for stopping by - I hope you've all had a lovely relaxing Sunday! xo Lou.
