Cantilever Sewing Box, Part 2

 After I put the boxes together, shown in the previous post, I took it all apart, then I reinforced the levers with another piece of cardboard (making them double thick), and covered them with kraft paper.  I also changed the color of the brads that I used.  I think the gold matches the papers better.
 I also changed the knobs to ones I felt more suited the project.
 This is one side opened, you can see how big the drawers are!  I covered the inside of the box with some kraft paper to cover the brads, but that is all of the papering I did on the inside of the boxes.
 The handles were not to my liking, so I edged them with more papers.  Then I stuck the whole thing together and attached it to the foam core base.

 This is the finished project.  I added feet to it to make it more pretty.
 I love how it came out.
 It will be so fun to fill with fun stuff.  I just have to figure out what to put in it!

It's awesome, and a fun project to make.  Below is a list of things I used to make it.

Papers:  DCWV and Recollections Kraft Cardstock
Knobs:  Tim Holtz
Feet:  Graphic 45
Adhesive:  Score Tape (Yup, just loads of Score Tape...I love that stuff!)
Miscellaneous:  Brads, screws (for the feet), a drill to make the holes, paper piercer, rulers, etc.

Stay crafty, my friends!
