Easel Drawer Box & Card

Hi Crafty Friends, Adele here
Today is my turn to guest design here at She's A Sassy Lady
Thanks Sheila :)

Today's project is an Easel Drawer Box, I made this design in CCR & on the Gypsy so for anyone that would like these files, I shall put them at the end of this post.
So, here is the Easel Drawer Box

This includes a 4x4 square folded card to fit inside the drawer.
You will need the following card stock

Drawer Box
6.5" x 6.5"  for the drawer
4.5" x 12"  for the wrap of the drawer

Score the drawer 6.5" square card at 1" around all 4 sides, 
cut a small triangle into 4 edges to form the tabs, glue together.

Score the wrap 12" at the top, at the following marks on a score board
1.1/8", 5.5/8", 6.3/4", 11.2/8" 

(If using a Crafters Companion Ultimate, then use the "box base" side to score the following)

Score at 1", fold then push this fold to the right edge and score again at 4.5", fold and push this fold to the right edge and score again at 1", fold push to right edge and score at 4.5", fold, push to right edge and score at 1"
This forms the wrap for around your drawer base

Now on to the Easel Card, for this card you will need the following card stock

Easel Card

4.5" x 9" for the card, score at 2.25" & 4.5"
4.5" x4.5" for the front panel
4.5" x 1" for the stopper bar.

I used Gypsy Wanderings, Ornamental Iron, George & All wrapped up for decoration and the semi circle panel pieces ( using the hide contour feature on Gypsy wanderings grapefruit)

Here is the Gypsy view

This is how the 4" x 4" card should look after adding the semi circle panels and the Ornamental Iron decorate pieces to the underside of the card.

And this is how it should look when folded

Now, on to assembling the Easel Card to the drawer box
 With the 4.5" x 9" card attach it to the top of the drawer wrap and fold the easel part so you can attach the front easel panel, add the stopper bar too, as shown below.

Now it's ready to decorate :)

I have made several of these in various sizes, they are so handy for so many occasions, here is a few I have made recently, using Heartfelt Creation die's as well as my cricut.

Sorry for such a long post but I thought the detail would help others recreate these.
Here are the links to my files

Thank you so much for having me again Sheila.

I hope you enjoyed this project, I certainly had fun creating them :)

Happy Crafting
