How to make a cabinet from the window die & CREATE AND CRAFT TODAY



This is another cabinet which I made from the Tonic Studios Domed Window Die and I've added a little tutorial to show how I made it.

This die, along with the Trellis Wall, Window Basket and the coordinating stamp set can be seen on Create and Craft today at 2.00pm and 6.00pm...along with lots of other Tonic goodies.

 1. Die cut and emboss the window, then draw around it on a longer piece of card. Continue the side lines for another 4.5cm and cut out.


 2. Cut out a little drawer measuring 7cm x 2.5cm . Using the grid on the Tonic Studios Super Trimmer as a guide emboss an inlay with a fine embossing tool as shown.


 3. Place the window and drawer on the cut out cabinet and then place a Spellbinders die (or similar) centrally below the drawer and mark the position.


 4. Die cut the leg shape.


5. Attach the window and drawer to the back piece with 3D foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

I have added gems to the drawer as handles, inked the cabinet and used the stamps from the Pick of the Bunch Through the Window set (coloured and cut out) as ornaments .
