Vintage / Modern Drawers (Echo Park Paper)

Hi Everyone

I have been teaching at a couple of events recently – and I want to share a few of the classes over the next couple of weeks. I taught this first class at the Scrapfest by the Sea event in Nelson last weekend. I was tutoring with Trina McLune and Karola Witczak and we had an amazing time. If you are in New Zealand and would like to learn more about the event or just be part of a great group of ladies – join our Facebook Page here.

Vintage Modern Drawers Class

This fun class was enjoyed by all the ladies who attended. For many, it was their first time trying an off-the-page project and I really focused on breaking down the process into manageable steps. The silver butterfly can be found in the PaperVine store here

The drawers are made here in New Zealand to my own specification and I carry them in my online store. We are currently re-ordering so please email here if you would like to order any. (Sorry but we are unable to ship overseas)

Creating the decorations on top was one of the best parts of the class!

  1. We created a little sewing ensemble using wooden reels from Maya Road and some twine and washi tape
  2. We threaded some small beads onto some Maya Road pins and secured using the Glossy Accents in the kit
  3. We stamped the large spool with some Prima Stamps to give it an authentic vintage look.
The papers and stickers are from the For the Record “Tailored” Collection from Echo Park Paper. You can see detailed pictures of the sides below. I kept the decoration simple as for a 2.5 hour class – I want people to be able to complete the majority of the project.
Stay tuned for more ideas from the classes coming soon!
