Stuff is Awesome. Stuff is Good...

Have paper? Then you make this.....
A NEW CAR!! (No, just kidding,not a car) but a A NEW STORAGE BOX!
I made this in a few short hours and you can too with the incredible file from The Cutting Cafe called Dresser Set Box.  If you click here, you'll see how it can be altered from three adorable drawers on a dresser to twelve, like I have done below.
The file comes with alternating drawers to choose from. You can either have a straight edged drawer or a drawer with a curve. I chose to use both. The possibilities of this file are endless!
Once boxes and drawers were assembled together with glue, I added cardstock around the edges to give a finished clean look, then I added folder embossed foil tape to the edges and began grunging it all up to fit my craft room.
STUFF was created by having the cutting machine cut out each style of the letter in various fonts, several times each. Gluing the layers together for depth and then adhering them onto a base board of cardstock.  I meant to glue some of the letters backwards for a neater 'letterpress' look, but totally forgot in the fun of it all...
Great way to use those scraps you're holding on to by decorating the drawers.
Added some buttons and knobs to the stratight edged drawers and my stuff holder box is complete 
and all thanks to

Hello Q.
Life is slowly getting back to normal after our trip and Christmas...Having the usual lethargic January, but hopefully this will pass soon.
Your Drawer set looks wonderful, I really like the letterpress words as well;they look so effective on top of the drawers.
This is a fabulous mixed media project.
Well done also for being the lucky winner with your mason jar ornaments at the funkie Junkie.

I saw a wooden set of drawers similar to this at Hobby Lobby. Got all excited cause I saw that it was marked down and I thought it said $10.00. The old eyes ain't what they used to be. It was $40.00! LOL Needless to say it didn't come home with me. This is awesome Twang. Lots of room for all the cool doodads you use on your projects. Hey did you see that poor Ellie Mae Clampett died? Wonder is they had reminiscing around the cement pond. :-(

Totally awesome Lisa! You always surprise me. The drawer set is something you can use for thing that are light. The buttons are perfect and it sure looks like wood that you sanded. Great idea adding a base board to give more support. You sure captured grunge look and the letters worked really well.
Hugs, Pat/♥

This is crazy awesome! I would have sworn that you upcycled an old piece of office furniture! Crazy mad skills going on here!!! I think my favorite part is how you labeled the top with 'stuff' so there is no mistaking what will be stored here! wink!

So good to be able to pop back in and catch up on all of your fabulous creations!!
