3 drawer stack Silhouette Tutorial

Today I'm going to show you how to assemble the 3 drawer stack that appeared in the Silhouette store this week.
Cut the number of each piece as specified in the above picture.
I cut my pieces out of my Saddle Up! collection for Carta Bella.

 Crease all perforated edges of the drawer insert. 
 Fold over the flaps that adjoin to the tab side. 
 Fold over the next pair of flaps so that they capture the tabs underneath. 
 The drawer insert will hold together without glue, but you are welcome to add a little glue if you wish.
Now fold all three drawer insets.
 Now you will fold three drawer cases. First fold over the ends and glue them down. This will reinforce the lip where the drawer slides in and out. Crease all fold lines.
Fold the drawer case to the center, then glue the small flap in between and glue it to the bottom flap, then fold the top flap and glue it to the ones you just glued together. (putting the small flap in between the larger flaps will allow for the drawer to slide without catching.)

Here's an example of one finished drawer.
Fold and glue 3 drawer cases, then stack and glue them with a paper friendly glue like Tombo Mono Adhesive.

 Fold the outside wrap around the drawer case stack. 
 Attach the feet with small brads to the wrap around before you fold and close them. The button side of the brad will end up on the inside of the foot. 

 Once the four feet are folded and glued, fold the wrap around the drawers. 
Secure the bottom joining piece with glue.

Add the details like the drawer handles with brads. The inside flaps of the drawers are designed to hide the back side of the brads. (the brads will only go through one of the layers.) Project can be modified by substituting glue dots for brads. 

This stack of drawers is perfect for little treats, three cookies, jewelry, or whatever you would like. Just use your imagination!

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Without your readership, I wouldn't be doing a blog.

My blog is supported by sponsors and affiliates. If you decide to make a purchase through my affiliate links, I am paid a small commission for it. This doesn’t cost you anything additional. These commissions help to keep the rest of my content free, and allow me to blog more often.

From time to time I make recommendations of products that I love to use, or products that I have designed. Occasionally, manufacturers send me products to play with. They have not obligated me to show them on my blog or review them. I only make positive remarks about those things that I truly love and enjoy to use. Everyone's personal experience with various products may be different, as we all use things in different ways. I am not compensated for these remarks, and merely pass on my opinion to you as a reader. I hope you find my opinions valuable.
