Hi everyone, welcome to Heartfelt Creations’ Inspiration Wednesday!
You may already know this but I have an absolute love for making miniature furniture out of paper so today I wanted to show you a Vintage Armoire that I created for you using the Antiquity Paper Collection. I did a bunch of looking on-line at different versions that many ladies have put together and I took pieces of a lot of them to come up with my own design. I sure hope that you like it! I was going to have several layers of drawers but the piece got to tall so I eliminated all but the 1 set.
here is a closer look at the doors to give you a better view of the detail.
and here is a closer look at the inside, I wanted to keep it as neutral on the inside as possible.
and last but not least, the best part …… the flowers using the gorgeous Heartfelt Creations stamps and coordinating dies (for more detailed info on the products see below).

Lets start by building the drawer. It is simply a match box measuring 5″ wide x 2 1/4″ deep x 1 1/2″ tall. For the top of the armiore cut a piece of card stock 7″ x 9 3/4″ and a second piece of card stock 7″ x 5″. Using the larger piece scor at the 2 1/2″ and 4 3/4″ marks and scor the smaller piece at the same 2 1/2″ and 4 3/4″ marks. Next attach the smaller piece to the larger piece so that the outside edges are both 2 1/2″. The top and bottom of the armiore are pieces of card stock 6″ x 2 3/4″, scored at the 1/2″ mark on 3 sides. Attach the top and bottom to the sides that you made and then glue the drawer to the top. For added strength, attach a piece of card stock to the back and wrap the sides in your favorite DP. Now comes the fun part. Flowers! Stamp, emboss, die cut and distress flowers and attach them where you would like to have them. I wanted them on the top so I made the back piece longer to give me something to attach the flowers to. Finish with some pretty lace and bling and enjoy!
Thanks so much for your visit! It means so much to me. I hope you can visit again very soon. I love to read your comments and really appreciate your feedback!
