Alice Again lol

Morning --I found a tutorial in a magazine to make these little drawers with the easel card on top a few months ago--cut out all the pieces then was left on my desk-had a couple of hours Sunday After-noon so decided to finish it.

I made the drawers and and structure with strong card --papers from Thw Works--image coloured with promarkers and added glossy accents was from Star Stampz but couldn't find the image so maybe discontinued?
Texture stamp from Lisa Horton round the edges and circle dies from Creative Dies-the stamped Eat me Drink Me was a craft mag freebie --playing cards from Christmas cracker --little key in a bottle/little price tags and metal brads from stash had for long enough and no idea where they came from!!!

Alice in Wonderful is my favorite book, Carol.
Your grandaughter is such a beauty!
And I love your drawers! I still haven't tried to make such a shaped card. It seems difficult but definitely I will try it one day.
Kisses, my friend.

Wonderful creation. We made a similar set of drawers at a Stamp Club one month - I must dig out the instructions because I never finished mine :-( This looks fab. Love Holly's costume... my DIL just buys a plain costume from some supermarket or other for Izzi - such a shame not to play and teach the kids how to have fun! Hope she enjoyed her day. It's so good to inspire a love of books in kids and especially these days, with all the technology around.
