Luv'n Box of Drawers

Last month, Mama helped us with the Sister Stamps Release #2 by making samples and posting it on her blog. I've been a big fan of her's for awhile now and actually got to meet Miss Anonymous in person once. Wish I could've chatted with her more, but I was happy to finally meet this mystery woman- kinda reminds me of the Wizard of Oz! So mysterious! One of her projects caught my eye and I had to go investigate further by clicking on all the links till I eventually found the tutorial on how to make this box. It's called Box of Drawers and I actually saw a different version of this at a paper craft store in Honolulu. This version was much easier as it did not require chipboard. The washi paper I used is very busy, so I decided to cut a circle in gold and mounted Kiyomi on it so she wouldn't get lost in the washi. Here's a close up of Kiyomi. And here's the inside of the box. When the box is closed up, the drawers nest nicely and can hold tiny treats. It reminds me of those lacquer chests you see from Japan. Well, my project is not as stunning as Mama's, but I hope it will inspire you to try one yourself. Check out Mama's sample and be prepared to be blown away if you haven't seen it before. Thanks Mama for being a great inspiration! It's release day today for our Release #3 images. That means you can finally get your hands on our holiday images. Enjoy!
