Chest - a needle box of matchboxes

Needles constantly lost? Beads scattered throughout the apartment? Can't find the beads? And the buttons somewhere disappeared? There is an exit! Let's make a miniature chest of drawers - a needle case for small things. Despite the large list of what we need, a miniature chest of drawers is made easy and simple.

To create a dresser - needles we need:
  • - 6 empty matchboxes;
  • - scissors;
  • - masking tape;
  • - gouache or acrylic paint of white and red color (or only pink);
  • - glue gun;
  • - glue stick;
  • - thick cardboard;
  • - scrapbook;
  • - beads;
  • - brush and sponge;
  • - synthetic winterizer;
  • - pencil;
  • - a small piece of cloth.

Step 1. Take 6 matchboxes. With the help of glue - a pencil we glue them together in a box of 2, the total should be 3 rows.

Step 2. For reliability, we will fasten the boxes with masking tape (ordinary tape will not work, since we will paint later). From my own experience, I want to give advice: it is better to pull the sliding parts out of the box before you glue them with masking tape, otherwise they will be difficult to remove.

Step 3.We begin to paint the chest. Mix white and red acrylic paint to create a soft pink tint. We paint with a sponge with a patting motion. This method is faster and, thanks to masking tape, the paint falls more evenly. We paint the entire chest of drawers from all sides, except for sliding parts.

Step 4. Cut out 2 rectangles 4 cm long and 3 cm wide from scrapbook. Next, cut out 6 rectangles 3.5 cm long and 1 cm wide.

Step 5. Glue the blanks from scrapbook to the chest of drawers. On each drawer we glue 1 rectangle, in the same way we glue large rectangles on the sides of the dresser.

Step 6. Cut a rectangle 6.5 cm long and 4 cm wide from thick cardboard. Then we take a synthetic winterizer and glue it onto the cut out rectangle. The synthetic winterizer, which has gone beyond the edges of the cardboard, is cut off.

Step 8. Here we have such a pad! This will be the needle bar. Glue it to the top of the chest with a glue gun. Next on the drawers of the dresser glue handles - beads. They can be both one and different colors.
