this is what i ended up making with the little cardboard boxes i posted here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21575.msg175527#msg175527:  a little chest of drawers that fits on top of my desk!



it is 8 inches high with seven little drawers in it, perfect for storing little things like buttons, coins, makeup items and other miscelaneous tiny junk that would otherwise be lost:





it's just bare cardboard right now (i believe the boxes originally stored oil pastels) but i may decorate it later. here it is being useful on my desk Smiley

Off topic, but I love the skull on your desk.  One of my majors is anthropology, and I go crazy for anything homonid-type skull.
The mini-drawers are really cool though.  It would be great to do that with those large match boxes.

And I spent 40 bucks on one for my mom, but it was wood. I never have that many boxes to do something like that. Perhaps I shall start collecting them. Could you post a tute? (I don't want to use that word but oh well) Nothing quite so detailed as a tute but I would like to know how you affixed the knobs espcially.

ravenlock, the skull is my art teacher's that i have to make drawings of for class (i'm in figure drawing) i wish i could say it's mine!

and as for the knobs, they are folded pieces of cardboard affixed with hot glue. kind of messy and i may have to re-apply them at some point, but for now it works.

i don't know if i could make a tutorial or anything like that since the design is so specific to the boxes and i just kind of made it up as i went. sry  Undecided

That's very creative. I could see using shoeboxes in much the same system, possibly.

I love that it's for tiny objects.

What a brilliant use for those boxes!

Yeh I was thinking shoe boxes as well, but what I dont see is how to make the 'housing' that they sit in. Is it made from cardboard from scratch or did you find bigger boxes to sit your boxes in. If this makes sense?

the compartments that the drawers sit in are the bottoms of the boxes themselves, and the drawers are the lids. everything is just cut up and taped to make it fit.

shoeboxes would be a cool way to store bigger stuff! if i ever get enough shoeboxes of the same size, i might try that
