Hidden Drawer Card Tutorial (Chocolate Blitz 1)

The other day I showed you a Hidden Drawer Card that I had made and promised a tutorial. So I made another Hidden Drawer Card and took pictures this time. I think I mentioned in the other post that I changed the measurements slightly from other tutorials I've seen online. Also, the other tutorials use Hershey Nuggets in their drawer so I decided to be different and use a Reece's Peanut Butter Cup. The drawer does hold SIX Nuggets beautifully though!

On with the directions:

Supplies I used:
(ALL supplies are from The Angel Company)
Cha Cha Soar With It Collection
Cha Cha Cardstock
Mega Scalloped Circle Punch
All Occasion Circles stamp set
Kid Praises stamp set
Seeds of Blessing stamp set
Palette L'Amore Red ink
Versamagic Hint of Pesto ink
Versamagic Pumpkin Spice ink
Scor-Pal
White gel pen

Directions:

To make the drawer, cut your cardstock 4 13/16" x 4 13/16". Score it at 15/16" on all four sides. I know these are odd measurements, but my drawer fits perfectly! Another way to do this is to cut the cardstock 4 15/16" x 4 15/16", score at 1" on each side, then trim 1/16" off of each side. Whatever is easiest for you.

Make ONE cut at each corner, fold the flaps in and glue in place.


Cover the front and back sides with patterned cardstock cut to 3/4" x 2 3/4".


To make the card part, cut your cardstock to 3" x 11 7/8". With the long side across the top of your Scor-pal, score at 3", 4", 7", 8", and 11".


Fold it and glue the flap in place as shown in the picture above. Notice at the red arrow, the flap fold rests just under the scored line. And the blue arrow shows how the flap does NOT go all the way down to the bottom.


To make my Reece's Peanut Butter cup "sandwich", I cut the cardstock to 2 1/2" x 2 1/2". With a little dot of glue, I put one on top and bottom. This cup is one that comes 8 to a pack for about $1. (.55 ounce per cup)


Decorate and embellish the rest however you want. Whatever floats your boat, lol! Here are some more pics of mine:







EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT - I already have my two other Chocolate Blitz projects done and pictures taken for tutorials! I'm VERY excited about them! And just like this Hidden Drawer Card, I got my inspiration from other projects seen online but made changes to make them "my own". I hope to schedule the next one for Wednesday. HINT: It uses a full sized Hershey chocolate bar.

If you get my posts by email subscription or a feeds reader, you may get another "unfinished" post this evening. I deleted it and tried again though. I was pre-sceduling a post for Friday and hit "publish" WAY to soon, LOL! I guess you'll have a sneak peek! heehee




Be sure to leave me a link if you make one. I'd love to see it! Please use the direct link to your project, THANKS!
