Mini Easel Drawer Card

Hello again! I hope everyone is staying warm! It's been very cold and snowy here in upstate NY-we had a pretty big storm this past weekend. A nice few days to stay inside and paper craft! I really like making 3D cards and projects and wanted to share one with you today. I made a Mini Easel Drawer Card!

The easel part is about 3" square so it's not too big. The drawer is big enough to put a few pieces of candy.
The easel folds down flat so you could put in in a little box to give as a little gifty.
Here's the basic instructions:
For the easel cut a piece of cardstock at 6" x 3". Score at 1 1/2" and 3" I used Whisper White here.
For the easel front cut a piece of cardstock at 3" x 3." Glue it to the shortest scored part of the easel.
Next cut a piece of cardstock to 8 1/2" x 3" - this will be the wrap around for the drawer. Score at 1", 4", 5" and 8." Glue together end to end to make a sleeve. Glue the easel stand onto the top of the sleeve. To make the drawer cut a piece of cardstock to 4 7/8" x 4 7/8."  Score all around on each side at 1."  Snip on the score lines from the edge of the paper to the 1st score line on 2 opposite sides of the paper. Fold on all score lines to make a box and glue. I used a button on a pop dot so it stuck out a little as a drawer pull. Matte all the flat pieces with DSP. I used English Garden. Here's the measurements for the mattes:
Cut 2 @ 2 3/4" x 3/4" for the wrap around piece.
Box Liner 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"
Drawer front and back cut 2 @  2 3/4" x 3/4"
Easel front 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"
You need to add a little weight to the easel bottom so it stays standing upright. It also needs something to keep it in place-I used the sentiment and popped it up a little. You could use a brad or button etc.
I hope you try making your own!
Have a great day!
