Hello! It’s Lauren here today sharing a Shabby Chic Dresser twist on the new Tool Box Gift Card die set. With Mother’s day fast approaching, I decided to use the new set to make a shabby chic dresser gift card holder. I love finding different ways to use die sets and this is a fun alternative to the tool box for all your crafty relatives and friends!
I started out by die cutting all the elements I needed to build my dresser gift card holder. Next, I chose some pretty patterned paper from my stash and used the dies included in the Tool Box Gift Card die set to cut them out.
Die cut 4 of each rectangle drawer shapes and adhere them in a stack to create the dimensional drawers for the front of the dresser.
Trim the wheels off the bottom of the tool box and adhered the “legs” to their place creating the dresser look.
Adhere the dresser drawers onto the front and used small self-adhesive pearls for the drawer pulls.
Flip the dresser over and add thin double sided foam tape around the perimeter of the dresser (bottom and sides only) creating an area for the gift card to sit.
At this point, I created the background for my dresser to sit on. I ink blended Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink all around the edges of a white A2 (4.25×5.5″) sized cardstock panel. Then adhered the “flap” or top portion of my dresser onto the panel.
Then I removed the release paper from the double sided foam tape and adhered the dresser below the top of the dresser on the panel.
Then die cut some elements for above the dresser using dies from the recently released Peg Board Shelfie die set.
Adhere the elements onto the panel then adhere the panel onto a white top folding A2 sized card base.
Place the gift card into the holder.
I love how this turned out and think it’s a fun way to use the Tool Box die set in a different way. I hope you give this idea a try! Thanks for visiting!
