Hi this is Linda here today with a tutorial to share with you! I love to alter little gifts for friends and today I'd like to show you a chocolate box drawer that I made for one of the girls that follow my FB-page.
This is what the finished piece looks like....
This is what you need; a chocolate box of choice, some patterned papers, 2 cardstock of the same color, decorations and an adorably cute Whiff of Joy image of course.
It also helps to have a cutting board, a scoreboard and ruler.
So this is how you do it. Start by measuring the box you'd like to use. Measurements for this particular box are:
Box: 30,5 cm times 23,9 cm (fold at 14,2 then 16,4 and from the other side at 2,2 cm and then on 21,4 cm)
Drawer: 23,9 cm times 18,6 cm (fold 2,2 cm in from all sides)
Fold along the sides and cut "flaps" so that you can fold and glue the box together. I have to use one cardstock for the box and one for the drawer.
Here is the drawer glued together in the corners.
Here I have also glued the box together and the drawer fits perfectly inside.
Then all you have left to do is the fun part - decorate!! This is how mine turned out.

Here is a picture from the side to see the handle used for opening the drawer.
Thank you for visiting today!!
