Top Note Dresser

I saw one of these top note dressers on someone's blog (I'm so sorry, but I can't remember where I first saw this) and have since seen them on several other blogs. When I planned my Big Shot class for last week, I knew that I would have to reproduce that dresser as a sample. Isn't it just precious?

I used the stiff backing from packages of DSP to make the core of the top and bottom. I then covered that piece with DSP on both sides. I think it's very important to use the correct adhesive on this layering. I used the Tombow and it worked beautifully. I was able to get close to the edge and hold is tight. Nothing short of a tornado (or my three year old!) is separating those layers! As a reminder, with Tombow, a little dab'll do you!

Everything else was easy as pie! I didn't have a template, but the project is self-explanatory and just takes a few cuts. I didn't do a lot of embellishment because I fell in love with the simplicity of the paper. It's one of my favorite patterns and the color is fabulous!

This is fabulous! Love teh DSP you chose. Makes your little dresser so elegant. More like a jewelry box than a dresser. You've inspired me to make one of these myself.

That is stunning! Great idea about using the cardboard from DSP packs!

This is really stunning. Hmmm, I wonder if my ladies would be interested in doing this as a class!
