Pinky Easel Drawer for My Best Friend's Graduation

Hi everybody!! :D 
Just made this easel drawer yesterday, for a very best friend of mine. We'll have graduation ceremony on September, 6th! :D it's a week from now. Oh my, so excited and afraid. LOL

She's a pink lovers :D I promised to make her something like a half years ago, and just able to make it for her now. I'm such a lazy person :D

Emm, just want to share to you all, I've got accepted for my latest job interview. So, I got a job right now! :D I could save mores to buy cutting machine :D that's my long dream, buying cutting machine with my own money.

Enough for the chit chat :D
Here's the easel drawer:

Made it based on Tic Tac Toe on MDUC
I choose Pearls-Dies-Lace.

Here's the full view of the card:
You can see pearls, dies, flowers and frantage here. The question is, where's the lace? It's on the left and right side on the drawer :D LOL you could see the lace from another picture for the detail :)

Here's the lace I talked about :D see the white lace here? :D

I choose this Magnolia Image, On the Road Tilda. She's riding a bike, seems on a journey to somewhere. That's how I describe life. Life is a never ending journey. Graduation is not the end, it's just a stepping stone to the real world.

And, I coloured her with copics. 
Used my favourite colours combo here, R81, R83 and R85 on her dress :D 

And here's the flowers detail.
I added some flowers with pink and cream tone.

I also added two sentences about life "Remember This Story" and "A Favourite Story" above the image.

I just bought some clay mold, and put it here in the right bottom side. It framed the "xoxo" words. Means a lot of hugs and kisses from me :D I put a swirly dies, a gift from my generous friend, Christy <3 Remember that I haven't added cutting machine to my craft tools :D

In the other side, I added some flowers with pink and cream tone too.

Ah, and also made the easel with the newest Kaiser Craft Clear Stamp! :D got some lovely words from that stamp :)

Here's my another experiment with the clay mold. I put the corner in upper left side.
And then added white organdy ribbon and small pinky ribbon, decorated it with pinky rose and heart charm. The heart charm is hiding, LOL. Bet you barely see it :P

And also emboss "Journey" word with silver embossing powder.

I also take two photos when the drawer is open. I fill it with flowers :) 
Forgot to tell you. I also put four silver corners.

Here's the last full view of my easel drawer, while it opens. 

Hope you enjoy my post :D

  1. Absolutely amazing. You have done a wonderful job on making, coloring, and decorating this fabulous box.

  2. forgot to ask, where does one find the pattern for this. I would love to give it a go. thanks much

    1. Hi Bev B.
      I made the pattern myself. But it's really easy. You just need to make a square, rectangle and that square again. And then make the box inside. You could easily make a box right? :)
      Decorate it with easel card, and that drawer just look like mine is ready :)
      Give it a try, it's really easy! :D

      Big Hugs, Mikha
