Instructions: This time I created a drawerbox/easelcard. There is not really a tutorial for it. You can create this in any way you like. I decided to use 2 large matchboxes and glued chipboard on the bottom and the top. That makes the box about 5.1" x 4.3" (13 cm x 11 cm) Before I added the chipboard I inked the edges first as usual :) For the "easel" I used the aqua cs 9.05" x 5.1" (23 cm x 13cm) and scored 2 folding lines at 2.55" and 2.36" (6,5 cm x 6 cm) Before glueing the easel base decorate it first with your favorite paper from the Celebrate the Journey Collection. Ink the edges. Then glue the large part from your easel at the top of your box. Cut a piece of design paper slightly smaller than your base to fit the top of your box. Ink the edges and glue. The suitcase was created with the wonderful Luggage and tags Die. I cut it 2 times, followed the scored lines and glued it so you have a half of a "box". Do this of course with both the dies you cut. From one of the dies I cut off the "belts" otherwise it will not fit nicely if you put both halves together. Of course I inked the suitcase first before adding them together, all I did was use a thin piece of bag paper to hold the bottom of the suitcase together. Then I glued the "belts" to the other half so the suitcase is "closed" do not forget to ink the suitcase first with the Luggage and Sentiments PreCut Set before putting it together. Now you can glue your suitcase at your box so you use it for your easel base to "hold". The sides from the box have also been decorated with the design paper, and so are the inside and outside of the drawers. For the knobs I used fasteners.
To create your card: Cut a piece of aqua cs 5.1" x 4.3" (13 cm x 11 cm) and ink the edges. Yeah I know I sound like an inkaholic. Cut another piece of brown cardstock 4.5" x 3.7" (11,5 cm x 9,5 cm), ink the edges. Cut a piece of design paper slightly smaller than your brown cardstock, ink the edges. Choose one of the nice die cuts from your paper (or the one I used) and ink the edges. Create a tag with the Luggage and tags Die, cut out one of the tags from the dp paper and make it fit to your tag die and ink the edges and finish with some organza ribbon.
Use the Luggage and tags Die for the small ticket and cut out one of the tickets from the dp paper. Now you can glue everything together, before adding your base card to your easel base, make sure you finish and decorate your card first, when finished glue it to your easel base. Decorate with some nice corners and a charm and dew drops et voila, you are
