Scor-Pal Decorative Box With Drawers Tutorial

I've got a tutorial to share with you that I wrote for the Scor-Pal blog.  If you like trying different types of projects, be sure and check out all of the great how-to's found there.

It's so fun to find inspiration on Pinterest, and today's box was inspired by a box found on the site from Marianne.  This one is a three drawer version and would be perfect for special trinkets.

Farmhouse Paper Company:  Market Square - Barbershop
WorldWin Papers card stock
Cherry Lynn Designs Mini Pearl French Flair Reflections Doily
Spellbinders Rose Creations
Tim Holtz/ Advantus Screw Fastners
May Arts Ribbon
Ranger Distress Ink: Vintage Photo
Box base: 12 x 10 ½” card stock – With the 12” side along the top fence, score at 4”, 8”. Turn once clockwise and score at 3 ½”, 6 ¾”. Cut as shown.

Drawer Dividers: (2) 6”x 10 ¼” card stock – Score each long side at 1” and 5”, turn with the long side along the top fence and score at 1 ½”, 5 ½”, 9 ½”.  Cut as shown to form tabs and then fold  valley, mountain, valley, as shown .

 Secure the two center sections together to form a shelf.
 Join the two shelf sections together.

Add Scor-tape to both sides and the rear of the shelving unit. Attach the back to the center square first, and then the sides.

Adhere the rest of the flaps on the box base around the shelving unit to complete.

Drawers: (3) 8” x8” card stock – Score each at 1”,2”6”, 7” – turn a quarter turn and repeat.  Cut tabs as shown.

  Add Scor-tape to each tab, and attach the sides.
 Fold over the top edge, with Scor-tape to reinforce the sides.

Your basic drawer box is now put together and ready to decorate.

Designer Papers:
Drawer Fronts: (3) 7/8” x 3 ¾”
Box Top 3 ¾” x 3 ¾”

Box Wrap Décor: Cut 2 strips of card stock 4” x 12”.  Use a decorative die to shape the top peak on each piece of paper. With the die cut edge in the upper left corner, the long side lined up with the top fence, score at 2”, 4 ½”, 8”.  Repeat for second paper strip.
Add decorative papers to these panels, and attach to the bottom and sides of the box.  Score-tape the upper flaps together or use a ribbon to hold the sides together.
